Trinket M0 crashing Windows explorer

by Rawrs on Wed Aug 22, 2018 8:28 am

Hello,

I've purchasesd about 4 trinket M0's for a few various project for my kid and I. I'm running a window 10 machine and when I connect them to my pc I'm able to tap the reset switch twice to put it in trinketboot mode but when i try and copy over the UF2 file and the others or even try and access what's in the root of the trinketboot folder explorer crashes.

I've tried different usb cables, different ports, usb 2 and usb 3, a USB hub to no avail. I've done a lot of searching on the forums and haven't come across anyone else with a, similar issue to mine.

I've also tried to upload it using the Arduino Ide application but I get an error

Set binary mode
No device found COM7
An error occurred while uploading the sketch

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Trying another machine windows 7 I was able to overwrite the files in the trinketboot directory no problem.

Doesn't explain why I can't use my windows 10 machine still.

The program "AIDA64" and Kaspersky antivirus have both been found to interfere with TRINKETBOOT. Are you running either of those on the problem machine?

Did some more digging, it seems like any software that grabs statistics from HDD and removable storage conflicts with the trinket. In my case it was Hard Disk sentinel, thanks for your suggestion Danhalbert.

Something like this might want to be added to troubleshooting or the faq that HDD utilities conflict with trinketboot mode?

Again thanks!

I've added information on this to the Troubleshooting page: https://learn.adafruit.com/welcome-to-c ... leshooting
and also contacted AIDA64, who will investigate

AIDA64 users: The AIDA64 folks have a beta version that they hope fixes the problem. Info here:

If you try it could you report back there and/or here? Thanks.
