Hi Everyone,

 

I have this SAM4S sitting on a drawer for a while, and now I wanted to revisit it for a project.

So I installed Atmel Studio 7.0 onto my laptop and plugged the board in, however it doesn't detect the board.

On the computer I see the board turned out as a serial port as well as an EDBG data gateway, however Atmel Studio 7.0 doesn't detect it when I plug it in.

I remember this used to happen automagically, but not not even under the programming tools it shows up.

 

Any clues?

 

Thank you so much,

Marcelo.

Have you tried both:

  1. plug the board in first, then start Atmel Studio;
  2. start Atmel Studio first, then plug the board in.

 

I know it shouldn't matter, but ISTR AS getting into such a state, and eventually being coaxed out of it ...

 

Have you tried the command prompt:

 

 

and then use atprogram list to see what that detects:

Yes I tried both.

 

I have noticed that when I lost Atmel Studio it takes some time then shows me a pop up asking if I want to wait for 1 more minute.

And atprograms list gives me this:

 

 

SO I guess something is preventing it from getting access to the tools.

No tools show up, not even the emulator.

That happens when I open atmel studio. It pauses for a few seconds, shows it, I click on wait for a minute more and it continues and loads. With nothing on tools, not even the emulator.

The CLI command was the same, atprogram list. That was all the output it gave out.

I tried uninstalling/reinstalling atmel studio and it's USB drivers, no change.

I am starting to suspect some internal communication between modules maybe?

 

[Edit] Interesting fact: If I start Atmel Studio without the board plugged in, the simulator is there. If I start Atmel Studio with the board plugged in the simulator is not there.

I tried disabling Windows Firewall and running it in Administrator Mode. Same results.

[Edit] Interesting fact: If I do the same with another edbg based board, SAMA5D4 Xplained Ultra, same thing happens. Edbg driver issue maybe?
