HI,

I have a UC3-L0 Xplained eval board which is no longer recognized by Atmel Studio 6.2.

When I plug in the board, the LED flickers on the development board which makes me believe that it is trying to send its ID, but

the software doesn't show that it saw it.   The code that was downloaded to the microcontroller is running ok so the board is alive, just not communicating with the PC.

I have another development board, the ATmega256FR2 Xplained Pro, that the software does detect without any problems, so I don't think it is a USB driver issue.

Any thoughts on how to get this board recognized again?

Anything that doesn't involve one of the JTAG programming tools from Atmel (I don't have one).

I'm wondering if this is a problem with the bootloader and will require a download.

If so what is my best (read most inexpensive) way to do that.

Thanks

--Bill

I am facing nearly identical situation, where version 6.2.1548 (latest) does not auto detect my SAM D20 Xplained Pro board. I have it on my office machine (Win-7, 64 bit). As per Device Manager all is good and MS-Windows correctly sees the board as a 'EDBG CMSIS-DAP' device, when the USB connection is made. 

Atmel promotes this board on their website for their 'University program' and that's why I bought it in the the first place, as this program is accompanied with some written examples. 

It is rather frustrating, not to get the board even detected by their SW, so their is no question of using the Programmer or the Debugger!

The Xplained series of boards were never recognized by Atmel Studio... Only the newer Xplained Pro have on board debug capabilites...

Hi Morten,

 

Thank you indeed. Atmel Studio now detects the board smiley !

 

Only yesterday I used the latest posted USB driver (7.0.646) at https://gallery.atmel.com/Produc... and it did not work.

 

Seems like you have an inside scoop on things wink. I do indeed appreciate your help. 

 

Day before, I had opened a 'case' with Atmel support and got a very 'standard' reply (after about 18 hours, I guess from India) to update the firmware of the board after selecting it, by using menu "View -> Available Atmel tools" option (of course there was no available tool/board!). The person responding even over looked that my Case Subject line mentioned 'board is not detected'. Such amateur support leaves one reeling. 

 

Being a newbie, I would really appreciate any useful references, particularly related to IDE tool flow and 'under the hood' stuff (libraries, header, include files etc..) 

 

Thank again

Avrmicro

Well I was excited. . I can't get the driver to install on my laptop.

Here are the errors from the log file.

Any thoughts on how to get this to install?

Thanks

You should have another log file for the driver_libusb0_installer msi (same place where the log file is).

Ok .. I got the atmel libusb0 to install successfully.

I renamed the libusb0.dll in c:\windows\syswow64 directory and then installed the exe you pointed to..

but after that install Atmel Studio 6.2 did not see the board my Xplained board.  Should it?

I'm looking for an easy way to program the board.  like the Xplained Pro's let me do.

Is the Xplained board not setup the same? 

I see there is a path to do it through the UART but since I started with the Xplained Pro eval board first I wrongly assumed it was the same in Studio 6.2

 

Thanks

--Bill

Seems that I keep continue to quote myself :) 

 

Most boards in the Xplained family comes with a Atmel Flip DFU bootloader, which is supported by Atmel Flip or by dfu-programmer (open-source) or by really recent versions of avrdude (also open source). Which of these you want os up to you (I would go with Flip on windows and one of avrdude or dfu-programmer on anything but windows, unless you already have one or the other running).
