Problem uploading code

Postby Five_O » Wed Apr 24, 2019 11:16 am


I have problem uploading first code. I have tried different upload speeds. All divers and Arduino IDE are updated.

After upload, tried with boot button and without it, even with capacitor mod, same case:

Build options changed, rebuilding all
Sketch uses 194472 bytes (14%) of program storage space. Maximum is 1310720 bytes.
Global variables use 13332 bytes (4%) of dynamic memory, leaving 314348 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 327680 bytes. v2.6
Serial port COM3

In serial open and boot button:

Only thing different for similar problem is boot code boot:0x1 ? What it means?

Did you try, after the start of upload code, holding down the EN button?

I use a powered hub between the computer and the ESP32, since adding a powered USB hub issues like needing to hold down this button or that button have went away. The is also another reason to use some kind of isolator between your computer and the ESP32 and that is that the ESP32 can feed power from your project into your computer.

There are also USB isolators (

Yes I have tried. I think all combinations :D Today I tried with new short USB cable. Nothing seems to work.
