I have a project that I am working on that uses a PS3 controller to connect to an Arduino Mega 2560 ADK (built-in USB). I have been trying to test the controller/arduino connection and I cannot get past the "OSC did not start" error via serial monitor.

I started a new thread because all of the threads I read were based on the Mega 2560 plus the USB shield, not the ADK. Theoretically, there should be no difference, but rather safe than sorry.

Here is my hardware: Arduino Mega 2560 ADK - Controller TrendNet TWB-106UB - USB dongle PS3 Move Navigation Controller (only 1)

Libraries: USB_Host_Shield USB_Host_Shield_Library_2.0

Sketch: https://gitlab.com/darren-blum/SHADOW

However, for the sake of testing, I have tried the straight example sketches from the USB Host libraries. I have tried the PS3USB and the PS3BT examples. It does not matter what sketch I try, I cannot get past the "OSC did not start".

The code that triggers this error is:

if (Usb.Init() == -1) {
    Serial.print(F("\r\nOSC did not start"));
    while (1); //halt
  }

I am not sure what I am missing. Here is one of the example sketches in its entirety:

#include <PS3BT.h>
#include <usbhub.h>

// Satisfy the IDE, which needs to see the include statment in the ino too.
#ifdef dobogusinclude
#include <spi4teensy3.h>
#endif
#include <SPI.h>

USB Usb;
//USBHub Hub1(&Usb); // Some dongles have a hub inside

BTD Btd(&Usb); // You have to create the Bluetooth Dongle instance like so
/* You can create the instance of the class in two ways */
PS3BT PS3(&Btd); // This will just create the instance
//PS3BT PS3(&Btd, 0x00, 0x15, 0x83, 0x3D, 0x0A, 0x57); // This will also     store the bluetooth address - this can be obtained from the dongle when running     the sketch

bool printTemperature, printAngle;

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(115200);
#if !defined(__MIPSEL__)
  while (!Serial); // Wait for serial port to connect - used on Leonardo, Teensy and other boards with built-in USB CDC serial connection
#endif
  if (Usb.Init() == -1) {
    Serial.print(F("\r\nOSC did not start"));
    while (1); //halt
  }
  Serial.print(F("\r\nPS3 Bluetooth Library Started"));

Idiot me. I thought Mega 2560 = ADK. It does not. Once I corrected my board from the Mega 2560 to the ADK, the USB port worked.
