Windows 10 issues recognizing the Trinket Pro

by eavery6156 on Mon Dec 11, 2017 6:54 am

I decided to bust out my Trinket Pro for a project that I'm working on. I went to set everything up (download the Arduino IDE 1.8.5, download and install the USBTiny Windows drivers) and I hit a snag. As always, I consulted the oracle, Google. Results brought me here, naturally, but most of them were outdated (5+ years back) or for previous versions of Windows.

So, here is the problem. I plugged my device in, Windows chimes off that it recognizes a USB device. I open up devmgmt and I see the libusb and USBTiny like it's supposed to be but then I hear the chime again and it disappears. I'm fairly confident the driver is installed correctly against the device. I've tried different USB ports, restarting the device, and reinstalling the driver.

I am using Ardiuno IDE v1.8.5, libusb-win32 v1.2.6, Windows 10 on a 64 bit Intel i7-4720 platform.

Could anyone provide some insight or direction because I'm a little stumped.

Thanks!

The USBTiny device emulation is performed by the bootloader. When the bootloader times out, the USBTiny device goes away. You need to start your upload when the USBTiny is active. You can re-activate the bootloader by pressing the reset button.

I do recall that with other devices, too.

My concern was making sure the compiler could recognize and talk to the device. I'll give it a shot and see what happens.

I sort of the the same issue. I plug my trinket into a usb hub and boot load , My computer recognizes trinketboot, however when I load "adafruit-circuitpython-trinket_m0-2.2.1.uf2", it disappears and does not come back. I look in the computer directerory and it is not in there.

@tobink64 - The M0 is not a USBtinyISP device. Better to post this question in the CircuitPython forum --> viewforum.php?f=60
