If you are using a Windows machine you must first install a driver before you can communicate with the Mini RAMBo via your computer. users of other operating systems can skip to the next step.

We have created video Instructions of for this process which can be viewed here:

Extract the files (we previously discussed how to extract files)

Plug in the Mini RAMBo with the supllied USB and let Windows “fail” to find the correct driver for the board.

Open up the device manager by right-clicking on “Computer” or “My Computer” and select “Properties” followed by “Device Manager”. Scroll down to the “Unknown Devices” entry and right-click on the RAMBo entry. Choose “Update Driver” and then “Browse my computer for driver software” (or something similar to this).

Choose “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer”, then click the button for “Have Disk”. Browse to where you unzipped the file you downloaded and then click “OK”. It may complain (depending on OS) that the driver isn’t signed – allow it to install it anyway. The RAMBo will now appear on your computer as a standard serial port.

Note the COM PORT that is assigned for use later in the setup.
