Hello,

I've recently bought a adafruit BLE sniffer and i followed the instructions of the Tutorial to install the drivers and softwares. However when I try to see my device on nRF connect, it says that "an error occurred opening serial port (NRF_ERROR_TIMEOUT)".

When I try to run the app "BLE sniffer", it can't detect my device as you can see in the picture below

If we take a look into the log file, it gives an error like "INFO: Error on port 3. file: Packet.py, line 251: UART read timeout (0.1 seconds)." (my device is on COM4).

Did you install the drivers for the CP2104?

Is that Windows OS? If so, is the COM port showing up OK in Device Manager?
