BrainPad not recognized as device


#1

I have the problem, that my BrainPad is not shown in the Device Manager and also not in Visual Studio. Programming with MakeCode works fine, but I can´t use VS or Arduino, because it doesn´t get recognized as a device. I think the drivers are not correctly installed, because it´s listed under Other Devices (Screenshot).


#2

I am guessing you did not load TinyCLR on your BrainPad. Please see this https://docs.brainpad.com/go-beyond/system-setup.html


#3

The book is another option http://files.ghielectronics.com/downloads/Documents/Guides/BrainPad%20Beginners%20Guide/BrainPad%20Beginners%20Guide.pdf


#4

what about the basics - https://docs.brainpad.com/start-making/intro.html and the indicated light colours?


#5

I loaded the last TinyCLR on it. Still it doesn´t work


#6

The Basics and the programming with MakeCode did work. But It doesnt communicate with VS


#7

We have a step-by-step video on this too. Maybe one of the steps was missed?
