Problem registering Flip & Click SAM3X on MacOS


#1

Hello everyone,

I am trying to complete the Register/Create/Virtualize procedure for a SAM3X device from MikroElectronika but I am facing some issues. The problem is that when I try to Register the device, a message appears saying: “Auto scan for device failed. Try specifying a serial port with the ‘-p’ option.” And then the “[error] Can’t burn bootloader! --> Auto scan for device failed. Try specifying a serial port with the ‘-p’ option.”

I am using MacOS 10.13.4. I have followed to the best of my knowledge the steps in this webpage: https://docs.zerynth.com/latest/official/board.zerynth.flipnclick_sam3x/docs/index.html#connect-register-virtualize-and-program.

If someone could help me out since this is my first time using this platform and the platform looks promising.

Best,

Hi cmendoza,

you have to press the erase button on top of the board before the register and virtualize phase.
If your device does not have the erase button, you can find the solution in this topic.

Hope this can help you.
