so stupid question time… i’m new to Pico and bought a enviro indoor to experiment with.
I’ve followed Upgrade Firmware and installed enviro-v0.0.2.uf2
I’ve then followed the Getting Started Guide and set it to store recordings locally.
In the related documentation it refers to items like config.py and viewing the logs… but I cannot see how or where to access the files on the pico? I’m connected the board via USB to a Ubuntu 18.04 PC but no drive is appearing to browse files.
A Pico running Micro Python won’t show up as a USB device. Circuit Python does that but Micro Python doesn’t. In Thonny there is a View > Files option that may get you what your after.
Thanks for the advice. Think I’m struggling to connect using Thonny. I’ve downloaded & installed latest Thonny from https://thonny.org/. I’ve set MicroPython (Raspberry Pi Pico) as the interpreter.
The enviro indoor is connected to USB cable. With port set to “Try to detect port automatically” nothing happens. I have two other options on my computer:
- ttyS0 (/dev/ttyS0)
- n/a (/dev/ttyS4)
When I select either and press OK, a few secs later in the shell box it reports
Device is busy or does not respond. Your options:
- wait until it completes current work;
- use Ctrl+C to interrupt current work;
- reset the device and try again;
- check connection properties;
- make sure the device has suitable MicroPython / CircuitPython / firmware;
- make sure the device is not in bootloader mode.
When connected via USB the Activity (White) LED is on permanently on the enviro board which I assume is the correct state
Widows or Mac PC? Auto Detect hasn’t worked for me in a while. I set it manually, and if that Pico is running a Main.py, I click stop to get access.
Linux/Ubuntu 18.04.5 PC.
Last night, I uploaded the Raspberry PI Pico W UF2 and on restart Thonny immediately detected the Pico (on automatic settings - I noted it created a new port, not shown above), there was a MicroPython shell and I could see the files on the Pico (yay!)
I uploaded the latest 1.19.7 Pimoroni Eniro UF2 and on restart, the activity LED is on but Thonny doesn’t show a connection and there is no file list from the device.
This implies Thonny 4.0.0 does not work with the Pimoroni Enviro 1.19.7 UF2 image?
Kind of looks that way? I haven’t yet installed or tried Thonny 4.0.0. Haven’t been able to find my round 2it.
