This is my first foray into Arduino modules and I am trying to set up a MKR Wifi 1010 + MKR Env Shield as a proof of concept for monitoring environmental conditions in growth chambers and greenhouses.
I installed Arduino IDE and respective SAMD drivers for the MKR board but my computer will not recognize the board when plugged into any USB. So far I have tried:
Installing Arduino IDE from the Arduino site by downloading the installer.
I uninstalled that version and reinstalled Arduino IDE via the Microsoft store.
I have swapped out USB-MicroUSB cables and tried various USB ports on my laptop (additionally I checked each port that I tried for responsiveness in the device manager by plugging in a mouse to each one.)
I went back to the SAMD drivers and installed various versions of it to see if one of the older versions might work for initial setup.
Per every forum I have read on this topic I have tried the old double tap of the reset button at every step of this process to ensure there were no changes at any point.
At every step I see all three lights on the board “On”, “L”, and occasionally “CHRG”.
Do I at this point need to consider burning the bootloader onto the board again?
