Hi and welcome.

Need more information to help you, like which version of the Arc32, how you have your Arc32 wired up. Do you have power running to the power connectors? How are the jumpers set...

A picture of your setup helps.

Don't worry, we have all been there.

Thanks, the picture showed that you have a more recent version of the Arc32, which helps.

The Arc32 will not run with only USB connected, you will need to connect power to at least one set of the power connections (The blue screw terminals). If you look at the datasheet for the Arc32 (http://downloads.basicmicro.com/downloa ... _B0010.pdf) page 12 shows some configurations for power.

You will also need an appropriate device driver for the USB to talk to your computer. It has been awhile since I installed one on a 32 bit OS for an Arc32, so I don't remember if it will install automatically for your configuration or not. If not you can download the driver from Basic Micros download page: http://www.basicmicro.com/Downloads_ep_43.html

Good luck
Kurt
