I got a Wii Nunchuk to try the Wire project. Put in the code from the book for the first sample that outputs to a serial port and everything worked perfectly (amazing-both the code and my ability to type it correctly).
One question: The other projects I tried in the book all start running immediately when the Arduino is plugged into the USB port. For some reason this one does not. Unplugging the USB and plugging it back in does not start polling the nunchuk, neither does pressing the reset button. The only way it starts polling is immediately after the program is downloaded to it.
The transmit led is not on when it is “stuck” (so it’s probably not a serial problem), the nunchuk is attached all the time. I’m using Vista 64.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
