If you are having issues with software please make a post, or add to a existing post with the same issue in the Digispark Support section of this forum. Please provide the following:

Running System: OS X, Windows, Linux (what flavor)
Version: Windows 7 64bit? 32bit? OS X 10.7, 10.5, 10.8?
Computer: Dell Inspirion 2100, Mac Mini Late 2011 with i7

What the issue is.

If it is related to uploading code please provide what shows in the black box with orange text at the bottom of the Arduino window after you hit upload.

Ensure that you are testing with the Start example, so we can eliminate issues with homemade sketches.

Check back for solutions, I will do my best to provide quick support!

Thanks!
Erik

sidecars -

Macbook or Mini?

Are you plugging directly into the USB port?

Have you tried other ports/other Digisparks (if you have more than one)?

I had this issue on one of my test computers (windows) but it turned out to be a bad USB cable, when I plugged directly in it worked.

Thanks for the note. It is a macbook.  I got five of them and have only tried two.  Both do this directly plugged in.   I have two external USB ports and tried both.  I\'ll keep experimenting.. as I am a noob at this.

I\'ve heard that some Macbooks can have an issue with circuits like this, but I never saw it in any I\'ve tested with. Those who had issues with similar hardware usually found plugging it into a usb hub fixed it, so if you have one available, preferably a semi good one, not part of a keyboard - but any of them are worth a shot - if you can, give that a try and let me know how it goes. Of course if you have a second machine available its worth trying to establish the Digisparks are good - though the chances of getting too bad ones is pretty low.

@tzavala - are you using the newest download from the site? - this was a known bug in an earlier release

I\'m closing this thread for neatness - please create a topic in the Digispark Support section for any new issues.
