I am new to Raspberry in general so I dont have a lot of experience with these devices.

I recently bought the raspberry pi pico and downloaded the micropython file from raspberry´s website. Everyting was going great but when I turned my raspberry off, the next day the Pico was not being recognized by the Thonny IDE (in the previous day Thonny was recognizing and working great.)

I tried connecting to the PC and download again the files. And it worked! But when I tried to connect to the raspberry again there was no sign off life.

I tried connecting again and again but there is no sign of life. I even tried pressing the Bootsell button while connecting but nothing happened.

If u can help me I would be very gratefull. And if you need more info just ask and I will tell u what happened in more detail.

Thanks for the attention, André

    When you connect the pico to raspberry pi, can you see any messages in the output of dmesg that may relate to the pico Feb 26, 2021 at 0:27

    I may have misunderstood - is there a raspberry pi involved at all? "raspberry" could be anything - best to be specific about what you're talking about Feb 26, 2021 at 5:59

    Yeah I forgot about that detail I connected the Pico to my PC ( windows 10) and to my raspberry Pi 4
