I received my Wio Terminal yesterday. The default game on it ran without problems.
I installed the driver from here: https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/Signed_USB_Serial_Driver/releases/tag/1.0.3 and the device manager recognises the device correctly as “Seeeduino Wio Terminal bootloader” or “Seeeduino Wio Terminal”, depending on the mode of the Terminal.
When I try to upload the blink example to the correct COM-Port via the Arduino IDE 1.8.13 under windows 10 I get the following error:
Caused by: processing.app.SerialException: Error touching serial port ‘COM11’.
… 5 more
Caused by: jssc.SerialPortException: Port name - COM11; Method name - openPort(); Exception type - Port busy.
… 6 more
Using the switch to enter Bootloader mode causes this error after a very long upload time:
An error occurred while uploading the sketch
No device found on COM12
(note that COM12 is the correct COM-port)
When the Wio Terminal is connected to my PC in bootloader mode I am also unable to open a new explorer window or access any of the files on the “arduino” drive. The Wio seems to lock my PC unitl it is disconnected/reset. Only after disconnecting/resetting the Terminal all the actions complete.
I reinstalled my arduino IDE and rebooted my PC several times. I also tried other USB ports/cables on my PC.
The only way to upload a program to the Wio Terminal was to use another computer running MacOS, so it has to be a problem with my windows machine.
Is there an easy fix for my problem or has anyone had similar problems with their Wio Terminal?
