I built the DS1307 and connected it to my Aurdino Mega2560 - connected the +5 and GND. Also analog pin 4 to SDA and analog pin 5 to SCL. I loaded the example program in the tutorial and loaded it to the Aurdino with no issues. It kept indicating the base time - not the current time. The line in the example code to 'set' the time was not commented. Voltage was checked and good. Baud and COM was also good. I took out the Mega and replaced it with an Uno and re-configured for the new board and made the same connections. This time the time set exactly as expected.
What did I miss?
