Windows Creator update causing REPL issues and delay in showing drive

Postby inakto » Mon May 15, 2017 7:22 pm

Hi!
I am working on a custom board based on the stm32f405 and a SPI flash. Everything was working great.
After upgrading to the windows 10 creator update a few weeks ago I've encountered some issues, wondering if anyone else is experiencing this. It manifests across multiple computers, and doesn't happen at all on PCs without the creators update or on windows 7.

Issue 1. When plugging in the board, there is no trace of the mass storage device. After 5 minutes or so, repeatably, it shows up.

Issue 2. The REPL locks up randomly and displays no new information, although control-D and control-C commands can still be sent successfully, presumably all inputs work as well. This is tested across multiple terminal emulators. Restarting the terminal emulator seems to fix this. This problem seems to go away after the board has been plugged in for a few hours.

Any ideas or similar experience?

I am seeing the delay in drive letter issue, but have no issue with REPL.

These problems are common across all three of my pyboards (v1.0, V1.0 LITE and v1.1)

Thanks for confirming this. It's been driving me a bit crazy. I suspect it is caused by the new windows feature of supporting partitions on USB mass storage drives.
