I'm a long time user of the Arduino, but have been looking for a something stronger with more io with an SD slot. The fubarinoSD seems like a great fit so I got one for Christmas. Problem is, I can't seem to program the thing. I continue to get "No Target Found" error no matter what I do.

I'm running Windows 10, installed Arduino 1.6.12, installed the chipKIT boards in Arduino Board Manager as the guides say and even tried MPIDE (which just hangs). My test program is simply printing "Hello World" to console on 115200 Baud. The USB port in device manager states "chipKIT USB Serial (Stk500v2 compatible) (COM7)

There are 2 buttons on this board, PRG and RESET. The guides only reference these buttons in regards to manipulating the Bootloader so I'm a little stumped.

Your assistance is appreciated.

Is the LED on the board blinking rapidly when you try and program it? It sounds like it has a sketch on there which is configuring the serial port, so pic32prog won't respond to it.

If it's not blinking rapidly then you aren't in the bootloader and you need to enter the bootloader in order to upload a new sketch:

  • Press and hold the PROG button
  • Press and release the RESET button
  • Release the PROG button

The LED should then start blinking and you can upload a new sketch.
