Windows 7- Unable to detect device in bootloader


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I received my IOT starter kit today and after initially getting it working I tried to update the master brick firmware. I put it into bootloader mode and connected it up, but my computer will not recognise the device, and Windows shows a prompt that the device has malfunctioned.


There are no indicator lights on on the device, and the device does go away in device manager when I unplug it. However, I am unable to install the drivers in the Brickv install location as Windows says the folder does not contain a suitable driver for my device.


Can anyone offer any advice on this?

Yes, you can only update the Masterbirck WITHOUT Ethernetextension.


Sorry, "hidden" in documentation: My Brick doesn't show up as serial port for flashing


@Tinkerforge: Could you please add a Note/PopUp in Brickviewer when flashing Masterbrick, like "Have you removed Ethernetextension?". This Topic appears time by time.
