Let's Make Robots!



So my starter kit finally arrived and I've been setting up the robot by following the instructions as on the startpage, but when I get to the cable connecting part, something seems to be wrong.

I downloaded the Programming Editor, and the cable driver, from picaxe.com, I follow the instructions from the driver manual, but the editor just says 'Serial port error - port not present or already in use!'

Waiting for my first ever robot stuff!

First of all: Hello and nice to meet you all.
