Using Arduino Leonardo, IDE 1.8.9, Windows 10.
For a short time, when I first got the Leonardo, Windows 10 would recognize the board; I could see it in devices, Windows 10 would make a sound when plugged in, it would show listed in the ports of the IDE, and I could upload my code to the board (confirmed with blinking light sketch). It no longer does.
The error I get in the IDE
avrdude: butterfly_recv(): programmer is not responding.
I believe the main issues stems from I had selected Arduino UNO (I have a couple of those as well) in the IDE and Uploaded my sketch.
Ever since I did this, Windows 10 no longer recognizes the board when plugged in. It doesn't even show in "other devices" under device manager.
I have tried the following:
- The on-board reset trick that seems to be most of what other users experience and solves their issue. All variations. Holding the reset button, uploading, releasing, etc.
- Swapping cables. Confirmed with another device it was a data cable and working.
- Uninstalling and reinstalling the IDE
- Restarting numerous times
- Burning boot loader - since Windows 10 won't recognize the device, this fails immediately can't even communicate to the board.
I have seen similar questions about this, but none of them seem to specifically cover what I am encountering.
