My son got an Asuro robot kit for his birthday. The soldering is complete but we can't get the software to load from the disc provided. We have tried following the instructions in the manual but they don't match what our computer screen shows. We get up to "WinAVR User Manual 20100110" which seems to be a web page and does not match the manual's "programmers notepad 2" - it does not have "tools" "options" so we are stuck. We are both complete beginners and so need step-by-step instructions for everything after soldering. We have a computer running Windows 8 / 8.1 . We can't even get the USB transceiver to do what the booklet says and don't know where the Hyperterminal programme is!
Can anyone please help in very simple terms? I have read some q&a on this site and I have no idea what most of it means. I'm hoping to learn alongside my son...

Hello,

please read the complete manual first

Important is the Latest FLASH program and the installation of the driver for the IR USB transceiver!
All the latest Software and drivers can be found on our wensite!

Thank you. I have tried that. The website has several versions of software - how do I identify the most up-to-date? I did download Flash which seemed to work. I don't think the driver download worked though. Can you provide me with a link to the correct website area please?

Hi Tracey,

Higher Version number = newer - I'll give you the direct download links here.
Newest is 1.55:
http://www.arexx.nl/downloads/asuro/ASU ... h_v155.zip

Most up to date drivers:
http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/CDM/CDM ... tified.zip
(but Windows should find these automatically when you plug in the USB device... so you most likely don't have to do anything there)

WinAVR:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/winavr/files/WinAVR/
(just click on the "Download WinAVR-20100110-install.exe (28.8 MB)" link)

Best Regards,
SlyD
