Pyboard not recognized by Windows 10

Post by DFL » Sun Sep 24, 2017 10:07 pm

I’ve got trouble connecting to Pyboard v1.0 from Windows 10. I’ve booted Windows in the mode that allows unsigned drivers. Device Manager recognizes the board and Windows shows it as a USB drive but cannot display any files. When I try updating the driver from the Windows returns (after a long pause) ‘not found’. Any ideas how to I go forward? Thanks.

This should be fixed by firmware v1.9.1 (and later ones). Which firmware are you using? You can download the firmware here: http://micropython.org/download

Thanks, I've downloaded the firmware (1.9.2) and I can see that there is a more recent time stamp on pybcdc.inf (in the stmhal folder) than on my pyboard. Should overwrite the latter with the former? Sorry if these are basic questions - I'm just starting out with micropython.

Everything is now working fine - it took a few attempts but following the most recent Micropython Docs + the Windows set up doc finally worked. Persistence and RTFM rewarded.
