I am new with this ESP32. I have the course and Ebook, have plans, ect. My board is KeeYees ESP32 ESP-32S The chip has ESP-WROOM-32. This is a 38 pin chip. I am trying to follow along with the videos to get this setup. Arduino’s use com3 This for some reason is using com 4?
Not 100% on cable I’m using. I am using an Apple charging/data cable.
I am not sure how to follow the video and get this thing talking. Confusing on how ESP-32’s many there are out
It doesn’t matter much the ESP32 model that you have. It should work just fine.
The COM port used by your ESP32 is not always the same and it is surely different than the one that shows up in our projects. Additionally, every time you plug and unplug the board from your computer, it will probably pick up a different COM port.
If you plug your ESP32 into your computer and in the Arduino IDE, COM4 is available, that’s probably the port the board is connected to. So, you select that port.
The cable must be a data cable or power/data cable. If it is just a power cable it won’t work.
I hope this helps.
