Getting back to my Pico after some time and trying to update firmware using WebIDE.
Problem: The Pico comes up on COM17 just fine with current version 1V81. This version was probably shipped with the unit when new as I don't recall doing a flash before.
When using the flasher and selecting Pico, any bin, the message directs to unplug, hold btn, plug in for Red/Green flashing. That works so far, but when hitting NEXT the port is missing and the flash fails.
What am I missing? Is something else needed on the Pico (i.e. a jumper or short)?
When you plug back in, are the LEDs on the Pico both pulsing? If so your hardware is all ok
And I guess you're on Windows - what version?
Is it possible the device is appearing as a different COM port? That's often the case with the bootloader since it's actually running slightly different code for the USB, so windows detects it as a different device. Maybe check out the device manager?
If you still have trouble you could try installing the 'Non-Windows XP' drivers from http://www.espruino.com/Quick+Start+USB and see if that helps?
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
