Problem to connect board

Honored Contributor II

hii all, 

After successful compilation i am trying to download the code into into he fpga board(DE1-SoC)..When i connecting the board i am getting this type of error..And where can i fin the .cdf file? becoz no .cdf file in the corresponding directory. 



Error (209015): Can't configure device. Expected JTAG ID code 0x02D120DD for device 2, but found JTAG ID code 0x00000000. Make sure the location of the target device on the circuit board matches the device's location in the device chain in the Chain Description File (.cdf).

The .cdf is simply your current Quartus Programmer configuration. You can optionally save the .cdf file to quickly configure the Programmer if you have a complicated setup, but it's not necessary. The error has to do with communicating with the device on the board. Have you ever been able to program the device? Is your USB-Blaster hardware recognized correctly?
