Hi can anyone help me with?
why serial Comms not working in microbit makecode Im using webUSB with chorme and it does not read and witre to PC Makecode/FUZE BASIC, Ardunio (IDE), or Pi FUZE BASIC I tried USB and Pin and nothing seems to work.
Does anyone know what im doing wrong, I naver got it to work.
First, is it programming OK with MakeCode or the online Python editor? If you’re not using a cable that you’ve used for programming, you may want to change cables. Many USB cables are “Charging cables” that provide power and not data. (If you’re using a cable that came with the micro:bit this shouldn’t be a problem…but it’s pretty common to try using a charging cable for a cell phone or bluetooth speaker, which usually lack the data lines)
If it’s not the cable, what version of the MicroBit are you using? You can check via https://support.microbit.org/support/solutions/articles/19000119162-how-to-identify-the-version-number-of-your-micro-bit.
Version v2.2 has a new interface chip (details here) Some WebUSB utilities may not recognize it properly. (The one I developed, https://github.com/bsiever/microbit-webusb, doesn’t yet. It’s in use by a few other projects, so they may not work with v2.2 yet. I’m working on an update/fix.)
