I am new to the Makeblock and Arduino platform.
I have built the robot starter kit Tank and I am able to use the Bluetooth app to control it. So far, so good!
However, when I connect the mBot to the computer (Windows10) with the USB cable, it shows no connections to the computer.
I have installed the Adruino drivers and mBlock 3.4.11. The mBot is powered on with the battery pack. I physically disconnected the Bluetooth module on the mBot.
I am not sure which Board to select in mBlock. I tried with several: mBot (mCore), Arduino Uno, Starter/Ultimate (Orion)
Nothing shows up in the Serial Ports list, its completely blank. At the top of the program, it says “Disconnected”.
I have read through many other forum threads trying to find the solution but nothing has worked so far.
Can someone please help me get the USB connection to work?
Thanks for any help!
