raspberry pi pico issues creating serial ports with macOS
Viewed 5 times
I'm having issues with using the picodisplay2 from a mac.
If I load (drag/drop to /Volumes/RPI-RPI2) the default raspberry pi pico firmware rp2-pico-20210902-v1.17.uf2, then I get the serial ports :
Then I can start Thonny and run code on it.
I’ve tried loading the f/w pimoroni-pico-v0.3.1-micropython-v1.17.uf2 onto the pico, but when I do so, I do not get any serial ports.
I installed pimoroni-pico-v0.3.1-micropython-v1.17.uf2 from Windows and was able to load/run micropython demo code communicating through COM3.
So, it would appear to be USB serial device issue on macOS, strange because the standard raspberry pi pico f/w works fine and the pimoroni-pico-v0.31 firmware is meant to be based off the raspberry pi pico f/w.
