trinket M0 drivers for windows 10?

by xoxos on Sat Sep 18, 2021 11:10 pm

arduino ide newly installed on an asus L210M running windows 10, previously used trinket M0 with a toshiba nb205 running XP until it stopped working :)

currently the trinket M0 i wish to program is showing as trinketboot (D:) when connected. i was trying to upload over an old program using the "arduino uno" board selection which unsurprisingly didn't work.

in device manager, i am informed the best driver is already installed. i have installed adafruit_drivers_2.5.0.0 selecting the option (Trinket/Pro Trinket/Gemma (USBtinyISP). i have selected USBtinyISP as the programmer. the trinket M0 is detected as unknown board.

i remember something when i did this years ago about going into the boards manager and selecting to download a package for adafruit trinket M0 but i can't seem to find that functionality now and none of the boards have the word "adafruit" in them (an "arduino MO" boards selection will not allow me to select the USBtinyISP programmer).

how can i get the arduino ide to include trinket M0 as a boards option so it can find it?

It sounds like you are having two issues here.

1) Setup the additional boards manager link and download the adafruit package

2) reload the bootloader on the Trinket M0

Fortunatley, both are easily remedied so you will be up and running in a few minutes.

Follow this page for adding the additional boards. The JSON link and Adafruit SAMD board package is what you want.

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE

The bootloader is available here. Just drop the UF2 on your trinket BOOT drive.

you've fixed my trinket M0 problems! this embarrasingly destitute aged person has something enjoyable to do for the next two months, and let's leave it at that :)

lovely!
