I have a problem setting up a new RaspPi Pico. I pressed the BOOTSEL button, connected it via USB to my Windows machine and released the button. I copied the .uf2 file previously downloaded for this version of the Pico (regular Pico, without WLAN) from raspberrypi.com. It rebooted and I re-connected it. I installed Thonny and wanted to select MicroPython on the bottom right, but it was not available. The Pico had disconnected. Again, I pressed the BOOTSEL button and connected the Pico. Now, Thonny gave me the option to install MicroPython. I tried this 3 or 4 times, always with the same events happening:
- Press BOOSEL, connect via USB, release BOOTSEL
- Select install MicroPython v. 1.19.1 in Thonny
- Copying files 1...100 %
- Port not found! Thonny says "Done!" anyway, but MicroPython cannot be selected.
- Pico was unmounted for some reason
Here is the Thonny output during installation attempts:
Downloading from https://micropython.org/resources/firmware/rp2-pico-20220618-v1.19.1.uf2 Writing to H:\rp2-pico-20220618-v1.19.1.uf2 100% Waiting for the port... Warning: Could not find port in 10 seconds Done!
What have I done wrong or where is the problem? Has someone encountered a similar issue?
