Featherboards stuck uploading

by Instance on Tue Feb 12, 2019 1:07 am

I just bought two Featherboards (a Basic Proto and an Express). I followed the instructions outlined here:

https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-fea ... rduino-ide

The board package and drivers installed just fine and I can connect to via the Arduino IDE. However, when I try to upload it gets stuck and endlessly says 'Uploading' (see attached image).

I tried double-pressing the RST button to get back into the bootloader ... but it doesn't do anything different. I have a fresh install of Win 10 and tried re-installing the drivers and restarting several times. Always the same result, sometimes it will end with the error message below. Note that if I connect an Arduino Due and change the board type using the same USB cable and instance of the IDE it will upload fine to the Due ... but if I change the board type back to Featherboard 32u4 and connect it then it gets stuck on 'Uploading' again. Any help appreciated!


Copied error message:

Arduino: 1.8.8 (Windows Store 1.8.19.0) (Windows 10), Board: "Adafruit Feather 32u4"

Can you post pictures of the two boards? Both sides. Are you sure you are using the correct board file when uploading?

See images attached and list of boards available. I tried both boards listed with 'Feather' in the name, should it be one of the others? Or is the correct board missing from the list?

You have a Feather M0 and a Feather M0 Express but you are trying to compile and upload to a Feather 32u4. That is not going to work. The Feather M0 is in the Adafruit SAMD boards section. Make sure you have both the Arduino SAMD and the Adafruit SAMD board files installed in the Board Manager.

Got it -- I followed the tutorial too literally. Thanks for the help!
