flashing the arduino serial number can be done on a PC, and has also been tested on a macbook pro running parallels with windows XP. we cannot be held responsible for any damage that may be caused while flashing your arduino, and thank you for understanding.
before you start, download the following (PC only)
1. install FT_Prog and D2XX Drivers
2. run FT_Prog, click on “Device / Scan and Parse”. if your arduino is recognized, you should see something similar to the message below
code: Device: 0 [LOC ID: 21]
3. click on USB String Descriptors.
4. uncheck the box “auto generate serial number”, enter something like a40h-xxxx into the Serial Number box, and delete the contents of the Prefix box. i use a40h-0001 but you should be able to freely change the “xxxx” numbers. this naming is one of the most important parts in having arduinomeSerial/serailosc recognize your chronome and making everything work.
5. click “File”, “Save As” (save to your desktop)
6. after saving, click the “Flash” / lightning bolt icon, and then click Program.
7. if successful, unplug the arduino duemilanove from the computer and plug it back in (if you run OSX, then first reboot). run serialosc you should see something like:
serialosc [a40h-0844]: connected, server running on port 14407
