Maybe it´s a stupid problem, but I´ve tried so many times now that I ask for help. I´ve done this 100´s times !

I´m using a new laptop in W10. Using QGC1.7-beta3 . No matter which fw version, I´ve always get this error when trying to upload to a board 6,1 (using a FTDI cable on COM26, used from years)

Code: Select all
COM26: No error
Using Parser : Intel HEX
Using Parser : Intel HEX
Error device


Any idea?
Thanks.

I have five or six FTDI. The last one I try is the one that works for flashing FW.

All my FTDI work fine to connect the board to the QGC.

@Adam: it worked your recomendation: changed to COM2 (instead COM26) and voilá!

This must be added to the wiki!

Thanks a lot

Nice to hear. By the way, it's quite funny - old limittations sometimes do impact in present time
