    Blancman, what did you do to get around the “Serial is not a type” errors from your earlier post?
    I’m running into the same thing and the “upload to programmer” won’t work until I can get it to compile.



    Answered my own question.
    For future me’s, make sure your libraries are up to date.
    I had installed a MIDI library from an older firmware and the current firmwares require a new version MIDI.



    I’m trying to load the GOLF 0.27 firmware using a 64 bit Windows 10 system and using the included USBTinyISP and the suggested 32bit driver from Adafruit also using the Arduino 1.60 IDE… with the Arduino Uno selected as the Board… and the Programmer set to USBtinyISP.

    Right off when I Open and Verify the Sketches I get a Low Memory error.

    Then if ignore that message and upload the firmware using the “Upload Using Programmer” option I eventually get an AVRDUDE Verification Error.

    Then the Groovesizer MB does nothing when powered through the 9 volt adapter.

    I’ve checked the jumpers and they are set correctly for the Golf firmware but it’s no go.
    Dead to the world.
    HELP Me Please.

    And I thought it would be easy to change the firmware.

    Files Used:




    Here are the specific error messages if it helps…

    Low memory available, stability problems may occur.
    avrdude: verification error, first mismatch at byte 0x0200
    0x20 != 0x3b
    avrdude: verification error; content mismatch

    The avrdude:Verification error codes change their byte addresses every time I attempt to Upload Using Programmer… with the USBtinyISP selected under Tools->Programmer->USBtinyISP.

    Not sure what to do [except try a different computer maybe.]



    OK that last option… [Try a different computer]

    It worked!!!

    Used an old Windows 7 machine and everything went fine…

    It was a 64bit machine still just a Windows 7 OS.

    Same USBtinyISP
    Same Cables
    Same Groovesizer MB
    Same Files

    Only used a different laptop and OS. Windows 7 versus Windows 10.

    Hopefully there will be a fix for all the Windows 10 users out there…

    Imagine if I’d gotten rid of my last Windows 7 system… ACK!!
