After a few years of very low usage, chance directed me to your website and had me decide to update my current 2.22 firmware. I read the website, the manual and the forum, but I am not able to update or figure out how to. I am on W10Pro 64b.

What I did:

-install drivers (WinUSB (v6.1.7600.16385)) via Zadig (v2.2)

-device XScope shows up working in Device Manager of Windows

-install Atmel FLIP (v3.4.7.112)

-start FLIP

-connect via USB

-hold K1 while powering up with K4(menu), only red LED goes on, screen of Xmini is off(?!?!) and an Unkown Device pops up in Device Manager of Windows

-in FLIP, choose device: ATXMEGA32A4U, communication medium: USB, click Open

-FLIP says: com.atmel.flip.IspException Could not open USB device.

-after a while the red LED on Xmini goes out and Unkown Device in Device Manager of Windows disappears

What am I doing wrong? Please help?

After placing the device on bootloader mode, did you install the USB drivers from the FLIP folder?

Thanks for your response!

Since I installed drivers via Zadig, I thought I was good to go, but after installing the drivers from FLIP (for the Unkown Device in Windows' Device Manager when in bootloader mode), everything is alright and I was able to update. The Xmini is now running firmware 2.40.
