Hi all. I just assembled the robot with my son, and hardware seems to work well, at least using the IR remote control.
We tried to generate a very simple program. We were able to connect through USB. We used Arduino mode to upload the program to the robot (operation seems to succeed), but nothing happens. We tried several actions, like restarting, pressing buttons, and re-uploading, but nothing happens.
Another problem we are facing is related to firmware upgrading. Although we are able to upload programs, firmware upload always fails. I also tried to reset the default programa to mbot, but I get the same message: upload failure.
We are really frustrated about this, because I couldn't find any detailed topic about running programs in the documentation, and the forum discussions didn't help me to solve the problem or understand what we are doing wrong.
