Re: powering with 5v

Yes you can.

The 5 volt rail is common to the entire circuit, so if you apply power to that rail, you can power the microcontroller.

Re: stackable I2C motor shields/brushed DC servo driver

Ah yea, i get what you mean, you want a kind of I2C set and forget controller.
Stackable like the freetronic RGB modules, or the temperature modules.

Re: Introduction

At the moment im working on a very basic easy to implement menu system using the freetronics shield.

Nothing complicated, its just to give people some easy way to make on the fly changes to their variables while in program.

Re: 12V supply with 4 Channel Relay Issue

Sorry for the late reply, this is in the wrong forum section, thats why.

Do you have a multimeter? It sounds like you are missing an earth somewhere thats applying bias to the transistors and turning the relays on.

Re: Arduino versus Eleven?

Also check if your antivirus software isnt doing something with USB connections.
Other things to check for are:
Third party USB optimisation software.
Policies regarding USB devices on a domain machine.
AMD Filter drives.
Intel OHCI usb3 drivers.
USB3/USB2 ports.
Front USB vs rear USB ports.
