BrainPad not recognized as device


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).


I am guessing you did not load TinyCLR on your BrainPad. Please see this


The book is another option


what about the basics - and the indicated light colours?


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


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


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