Can't find My Board

by kuromok on Thu Aug 08, 2019 4:41 pm

Hello, I've just bought this stuff for the first time and apparently I'm very bad with it... Here is my problem, I hope it has not been asked before....

I'm using Windows 10. I have a pro trinket 5V / 16 MHz.
I have already download the arduino IDE setup and the avrdude file (it has not done anything by the way is it normal ?)
I tried to run the "blink" program to begin, but I can't find the board Pro Trinket 5V/16MHz (USB)

Sorry it's in french !
Even in "manage board" I can't find it. Did I miss something ?
I precise that I tried to plug the trinket before or after running the software and it has changed nothing.

Thank you !

Did you install the Adafruit AVR Boards?
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-ard ... ot-6-x-ide

You may also need to install drivers:

Also, note that the Pro Trinket has been marked as deprecated:
https://www.adafruit.com/product/2000
Deprecation Warning: The Pro Trinket bit-bang USB technique it uses doesn't work as well as it did in 2014, many modern computers won't work well. So while we still carry the Pro Trinket so that people can maintain some older projets, we no longer recommend it.

(see links on product page to recommended newer boards)

Thank you for the quick response. I have not seen this warning before I order it... I have already install everything so I guess the issue com from there as my PC is relatively recent.
I'm really sad but thank you for your help !
