feather M0 not showing under ports

by Boone_Docker on Tue Feb 23, 2016 10:43 am

My feather will not show up under ports. When I press the reset button it just flashes the yellow led 1 time and pc doesn't see it.

I also tried double clicking the reset and I get a steady flashing red but my computer still doesn't see it.

I just got this feather and was running blink when it suddenly stopped.

Any ideas?
thanks!

Let's see if anything is amiss with the hardware. Post a photo showing the component side of the board please, well enough lit and focused that we can see any assembly errors. 800x600 images usually work best.

I tried the rest again and my computer recognized the board on port 4. I tried to upload Blink again and it failed. I'm attaching a screen shot of the upload attempt and a picture of Feather.

Just to confirm: did you reset with a double-press as described in this tutorial page?

Yes, when I first connect I get a quick yellowish blink, then nothing, then I double click the reset and get a steady blinking red.

That's the correct behavior for the bootloader.

Check your USB cable. There's a plague of charge-only cables that have USB connectors at both ends but no wires for the D+ and D- signals. You can verify the cable by connecting another, known-working USB device with it.
