Hi Particle Community,
I’m running into an issue with one of my cores. My issue is that the core isn’t recognized via USB as a serial device in Windows. My other core works fine and shows up as a Spark Core in Device Manager so the driver is installed.
The strange part is that when i put the trouble core in DFU mode, Windows all of a sudden detects it. I’ve ran:
- particle flash --factory tinker
- particle flash --usb cc3000
- particle flash --usb tinker
I was never able to get the Spark Core app to set up my core with my smartphone so I’ve always done it over USB. I run particle setup, feed it the wifi credentials and it connects and shows a breathing cyan light as expected. But the particle cli setup routine hangs on “Claiming the core to your account”.
At this point, I’ve tried stopping the particle setup script, and running particle identify and I get “! serial: No devices available via serial” . It’s plugged into my PC and breathing cyan, but not detected by Windows at all. Not even the “plugged in hardware” sound effect happens.
This core hasn’t always been problematic. It worked out of the box but after a while of developing a program for it, it stopped responding to the flash button from the Build IDE.
I’m out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.
