    Basic question re: card connect

    I am using Link2FS Multi V3a with an Arduino Uno and FS2004. Usually everything works just fine but ...

    Once in a while, in the course of changing and testing things, I end up in a situation where I just cannot connect Card 1 to Com4 as usual. I get the purple box showing Com1 only. Selecting Com4 in the pulldown menu does nothing. Unplugging the card, restarting the program, restarting FS9 does not help.

    When I eventually get back on my feet after much frustration (but almost no swearing), I have no clue what I have done to get there.

    What is the proper sequence to follow?

    Thanks for your help.

    Phil

    Re: Basic question re: card connect

    For the fun of it, I checked a bit on the web.
    The reason for this can be many. Check online for connectivity issues with usb.
    Arduino's help pages: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting
    Do you have power supply (PSU) large enough to power it all while providing 5 volts to usb?
    Can you see the card in the "device manager" when it does not work?

    Re: Basic question re: card connect

    Thanks for your replies. I had not realized that the problem might be caused by the card not being "seen". I thought it was a software hang-up of some kind.
    I will try and digest all that info.
