I have 8 FEZ Hydra boards that when plugged into the computer through USB appear in the Device Manager as “FEZ Hydra” devices. I can also get them detected in SMB mode as serial ports. The problem with all of them is that when I try to flash a simple application, the deployment hangs with the following message:
Attaching debugger engine…
… cannot attach debugger engine!
I tried updating the tinyloader and the firmware, but neither FEZ Config nor MFDeploy are able to communicate with the device in neither of both modes (SMB/COM, USB). The log file I get when trying to update the tinyloader reads:
-I- Waiting …
-I- TCL platform : Windows NT
-I- SAM-BA CDC 2.10 on : windows
-I- Retrieved arguments from command line :
-I- argv 0 : com5
-I- argv 1 : at91sam9rl64-ek
-I- argv 2 : Loader.tcl
-E- Connection com5 not found
-E- Connection list : com3
The device was detected as COM5 as shown in the Device Manager in Windows as GPS Camera Detect (COM5).
FEZ Config detects the device when plugged in USB mode as FEZ_Hydra_Gadgetgeer, but when I try to ping it or update the firmware it displays the following error message:
“Failure - Device is not connected or not responding.”
A similar message is displayed in MFDeploy. Any ideas on how/if this could be fixed?
Thanks for looking into this.
