Hi at all,
many people have problems in windows 10/11 to flash the ESP8266 (D1 Mini) over Arduino-IDE.
USBa->microUSB-Connector and CH340 driver doesn’t match, though you need a USBa → TTL-Adapter AND additionally you have to connect D3 (GPIO0) with GND !
Starting Ardunio and flashing… works !
I’ve bought this adapter DSD Tech.
For documentation reasons it would be great, if somebody outthere could build this one as fritzing part. Over Duckduckgo i didn’t find THIS part.
The photo should help:
Many thanks in advance.
