I have 4 arduino mega's running through a usb hub. When i try and add them through the add arduino script, it returns a 'cannot communicate with device' error.


If i plug only one arduino into the hub at any time i can communicate with each.


Each has its own tty device assinged on the raspberry. pi


Any ideas please?

Is the hub self powered or powered from the pi?  If the hub is not self powered, the pi may not have enough current to run the hub and 2 or more Arduinos.


If you don't have a power problem, could you copy the Script line that works and the ones that don't into your next message?
