First of all, thank you for your reply. I am trying the steps you wrote.
I am using Arduino Genuino 1.8.8.
So far, I didnt get the welcome message: “you should get the welcome message saying the firmware version and the date it was uploaded.” after connecting according to your instruction. Nor the commands <HELLO> and <VERSION> are working for USB. But, only <VERSION> is working when I try the BT com port (it shows <V,009c,dropControllerBT_PC_009c.ino,Aug 26 2017>).
I can get the board info with USB (BN: Unknown board/VID:1A86/PID: 7523/SN: Upload any sketch to obtain it). I cant with BT.
I need to add that I am dealing with the older board version with connections for 3 valves and 2 cameras only.
I am not sure, but do you think it can be a problem during PORT COM recognition?
USB-SERIAL CH340 (COM3) for USB properties PORT SETTINGS are: Bits per second: 9600; Data bits: 8; Parity: None; Stop bits: 1; and Flow control: None.
