Topic: MKR Wifi 1010 Not Recognized by Computer (Read 658 times) previous topic - next topic


I am using two Arduino MKR Wifi 1010's for a project and one of my teammates is able to connect to both boards and program them but I have been unable to.  I have installed the Arduino IDE with the Arduino SAMD Boards package, but I'm not sure if my computer is recognizing either board at all.  My device manager shows that I have a COM4 and COM5 port, but neither are identified by my computer as being the Arduino. 


  I'm using a Lenovo C930 so I only have 1 USB port, but I have also tried using a USB-C hub with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports without any success.  Additionally, when I try to use Arduino's online resource it says that there is not a board connected. 


  The green "on" LED is on on both boards, and the blink program was installed by my teammate on one of the boards, and is running when I plug it into my computer. 

What should I do to get my computer to recognize them?


Make sure the USB cable is completely plugged in to both the Arduino board and the PC.

You may have a damaged/defective or charge-only USB cable. Try a different cable.

Some Arduino boards come with their pins inserted into black anti-static foam. This foam is conductive, so you must remove it before using the board.


Hi I had the same issue.

Try a different cable. You can also do a double click  reset and upload the wifi network scanner sketch.

I notice my sketch was creating the problem. Once replaced by the example sketch everything went back to normal
