Title: Arduino 101 disconnecting repeatedly from computer
Post by: amulvihi on Feb 26, 2020, 10:34 pm
Hello,

I've got an Arudino/Genuino 101 that's repeatedly disconnecting from the computer. Last program loaded was a Blink, computer is running on Windows 10 Pro. Nothing else is plugged into the board.

I've tried:

Is this a known issue with the 101 boards (and if so, how do I fix it?) Or is this just a faulty board? I'm using a classroom set, and trying to figure out if this one's a dud that needs returning.

Thanks in advance!

The 101 is very fussy about the USB cable being used.
Shorter and higher quality are better for this particular board.
