My computer does recognize the NANO RP2040 Connect, but will not assign a port address.
I have a Dell XPS8500 with Windows 8.1. The computer does recognize the NANO RP2040 Connect. Board. Under the computer “Device Manager”, the name “Nano RP2040 Connect” is displayed under “Other devices”, with a yellow triangle and “!”. After opening the “Nano RP2040 Connect Properties” and under “Devices status”, one of the lines reads “The drivers for this device are not installed (code28)”. Then I tried to install the driver, but I do not know the divers’ name and could not find any information on the internet or Ardino.cc. I did find the driver word “arduino.inf” under “Install the board drivers of “Getting Started with Arduino UNO | Arduino”, but no NANO RP2040 CONNECT driver.
I also installed the IDE 1.8.15 twice to verify that the IDE was installed correctly. I installed all libraries that had “rp2040” in it. I have the “Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect” checked under “board” / “Tools”.
The “Port” is greyed out and nothing happen when you click on it. The above problem still exist. I also tried to install the driver using “Update Driver” button under “Nano RP2040 Connect Properties” window. I used both the “Search Automatically …..” and “Browse my Computer……” buttons, but still no driver was loaded. I even change the location of the driver search to the “drivers” directory under Arduino directory, but still no port address. My NANO BOARD, NANO EVERY, and Arduino UNO work fine.
I’m at a loss as what to do! I would be very grateful if anybody could help me?
