middle micro-USB connection fails (Edison disk doesn't appear)

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

Have you guys met this kind of problem? My Arduino Board is powered by 12V/3A source. The DS2 lights up and then switch to DS2. Then I connect the middle micro-USB to my laptop. Following the instructions, I download the Intel Edison DFU interface driver. It seems that the USB connects successfully. But there is no Edison Disk showing in my laptop. After I connect the edge micro-USB, the PORTS(COM&LPT) only shows one Series COM like below. This situation arises after I failed to install the integrate installer for windows 64-bit. The installer told me it fails to install an image (I forgot it). There must be something wrong with my Edison. Could you please help me? Do I need to flash my Edison.?

Hi newstart,

It does seems like a corrupt image on your Edison. Why don't you try the flashall method recovery method? Which OS are you running? In any case, you can follow the next steps:

  1. Download the Edison Yocto Complete image. You can get it from this https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads.
  2. Next, you'll need to download dfu-utils:

a. If using Windows, download it from vjou's message /message/257947# 257947 https://communities.intel.com/message/257947# 257947. Then save the file in the same folder you extracted the Edison image.

b. For Mac, open a terminal window and type brew install dfu-util coreutils gnu-getopt.

c. In Ubuntu, open a terminal window and type sudo apt-get install dfu-util.

3. Run flashall.sh (Linux and Mac) or flashall.bat (Windows). Open a terminal window, get into the Edison image folder and enter ./flashall.sh or flashall.bat.
