Hey, i have a question. I'm trying to use an arduino pro micro i purchased from ebay (china). I'm trying to follow the instructions, but i never see anything in COM ports. When i plug in the arduino, it shows up in device manager as ATmega32U4 (with unknown device symbol) and a solid green light shows on the arduino. i can install the driver by pointing windows to the driver folder from MMJoy download, then it shows up like this:
But when i connect the gnd and rst pins together to make it enter bootloader mode, nothing appears in com ports (also there is nothing there to start with.) the device does disappear from device manager when i do this, but then when i release them it comes back but only under libusb-win32 devices, nothing under COM ports. Does anyone know what i might be doing wrong?
edit: it's possible these pro micros were not flashed with any bootloader beyond the stock DFU bootloader? (based on the fact that in linux it shows up as atmega32u4 DFU bootloader when i run lsusb)
edit2: got it, had to use dfu-programmer in ubuntu to load the .hex, now it's detected as an input device so i think we're all set.
