I have recently purchased a couple of M4 feather express and I am having issues uploading from Arduino IDE.
Is anyone else having issues or is all ok. I have copied my post on the Adafruit forums below (has no replies.)
Can someone from Adafuit support please help, it would be much appreciated. Thanks
So I purchased a second M4 feather express and get exactly the same.
When I plug in I get the green pulsing neopixel and nothing on Pin13 led and I can see the flash drive in windows 7. All good so far.
I don’t yet see a serial port for the feather (this is the same for all the Adafruit M0/M4 boards I have but the other board program ok).
If I double click the reset button the neopixel goes steady green, pin 13 pulses read and I see the Featherboot flash drive. So it is in bootloader mode ok.
If I try to load blink from IDE is cannot find the board. If I double click while the IDE is enumerating through the ports then the IDE finds the board but fails to load with the error message posted below.
On the same setup, Trinket M0, Feather Express M0, Itesybitsy M0, Itsybitsy M4 all load after the double click of reset.
Probably not related but the charge indicator LED (ok its orange not yellow) flashes at a high rate all the time on both of these M4 Feather express boards.
Looking at the circuit diag and the data sheet , with not battery connected the STATUS pin on the MCP7831 should be in a high Z state ie LED off.
This is the same on several computers with a number of different USB leads.
Hi just got a new M4 express and having issues loading.
Win7 - Latest Adafruit drivers installed
All Libs updated.
I can upload ok to Trinket M0, Itsy M0, Itsy M4, Feather M0 Proto,
The M4 express goes into bootloader mode ok with a double click but the IDE fails to upload with error below.
I also notice on this board the yellow led (lippo ?) is always flashing (very fast). I am only powering vi USB.
Any help appreciated.
