Post DC Motor Errors
Ok, so I need your help. My team has been building, I've been programming, they finally got the DC motors connected, and now, they won't work unless directly wired to the battery, BUT, we thought it was a simple "The motors won't trip unless the program says to, so I used the basic DC motor test sample program, but now it says motors D and E are not recognized. Can anyone help me??

Try these tips. If they don't work, then post your code here.

1. Make sure your Motor Controller setup is correct in the motors and servos setup.

2. Make sure your battery is charged.

3. Make sure in your program, the batteries are properly labeled MotorD and MotorE in the motors and servos set up.

4. Make sure your motor controller is properly daisy chained.

Means you need to have the proper motor controller setup inserted into your motors setup window.
