Topic: mkr wifi 1010 - uploading error SAM-BA operation failed (Read 148 times) previous topic - next topic

I am receiving the "SAM-BA operation failed" error whenever I upload any sketch to my new original Arduino mrk wifi 1010.  This includes the upload of the simple Blink sketch.

Various sketches compile fine and actually seem to upload and run fine.

But the Arduino IDE always returns an orange text error that the "SAM-BA operation failed" during the upload.  Apparently this relates to the "Microchip SAM Boot Assistance (SAM-BA) software"

I did not see any other posts on the SAM-BA and am hoping there is a solution to avoid this error going forward. 

Any help appreciated.

FYI, I was told that connecting the board through a usb 2.0 hub would eliminate the error, and it did.  However, connecting directly to the usb 2.0 port on my computer did not work for some reason.
