    I would recommend posting in the Active Picaxe Forum, rather than in the blog section. Be aware, you will be asked such things as if the USB port is being shown as active in the Win-OS (version?) and if you were able to successfully set the Editor software to the correct COM port, etc. When connected, the USB port should be shown as active, you must select that in the PICAXE Programming Editor (Options/Serial Port), and you should also try Options/Mode/Check Firmware. Most likely you are just having a USB issue.
