I have and was hoping to use a ESP32-WROVER-DEV V1.6 with this course – Like but probably a clone – of the one sold by Freenove. it uses a CH340 serial USB chip which I have installed. My problem is it loads the sketch sometimes and not others, lately mostly not – sometimes I get flash errors, but mostly the following error:
A fatal error occurred: Packet content transfer stopped (received 8 bytes)
Failed uploading: uploading error: exit status 2
I have read many fixes and watched many UTUBE videos, several of your RNT ones, but so far none of these seem to work,
I am using the “ESP32 WROVER Module” board as suggested by Freenove.
Like I said, sometimes I get a good load.
Has anyone used this board with good sucess?
Any suggestions are welcome.
Is this what you need? If not explain
also here is a reference to what I found from Freenove
Notice on the box is a link to:
Can you share a link to your board? I’m not exactly sure what’s that board.
That error is slightly different from the one I’m used to seeing.
I found a similar issue here: https://arduino.stackexchange.com/questions/89843/esp32-platformio-a-fatal-error-occurred-packet-content-transfer-stopped-recei
I read through the issue you posted above.
I do not have anything connected except the USB at this point and still have the problem, I tried a 100Uf cap between En and Gnd – also a 100Uf cap on the 3.3 V. Alone, then together with no joy.
By the way – I have tried this with 2 of these devices, they both do the same thing. However I did get one to load and run your (modified for LED pin) BLINK sketch. I have left it that way for now.
I never experimented with that specific board. But, that seems like a hardware problem.
I took a quick look at freenove resources, and I think it’s better to try to contact their support team: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your time. By the way I like the new module 11 in the Smart Home V1.1 course. It kind of completes my eventual desire for what I am trying to learn.
