Let me start by stating I am not very computer literate. Not even sure what I’m asking or if I’m saying things right.
Working with Marlin 2 firmware in both Visual Studio and Atom through Platformio. Platformio automatically detected my sdcard on the F: drive to upload to when I compiled for a LPC1768 board and everything went without to much of a hiccup. I’ve been trying to do the same with a STM32F4 board and have run into issues to far above my head to comprehend. After months of frustration i finally decided to put an atmega2560 based board back into my printer that was working with Marlin 1.1.9 but figured i would go ahead and upgrade it to Marlin 2.
After compiling and building without any issues I can’t get it to upload. Platformio isn’t autodetecting the upload port anymore and when i try and set upload_port = F:\ in platformio.ini it tells me access is denied when it tries to upload. I have no other apps running and no other window open except Google. Could there be something in the background connecting to it that I don’t see?. It list my sd card under logical devices on the Platformio tab so it sees it right? I actually have two sd cards, one in the built in reader(H:) and one in a USB hub(F:) and neither one works but it lists them both. I’m copying the path in the device list and just pasting it but am I putting in the wrong path name?
I know the issue is due to my lack of knowledge but if someone could just guide me to something I don’t need an engineering degree to understand, I would be very appreciative.
