has anyone found thier pico getting very fussy about which USB cable will work, and those that won’t?
I’ve got usb cables that used to work with it, that no longer do… but are working with other devices. (*)
even the one I original got with it, no longer works.
I’m now to the point where only one usb cable reliably works with it.
I thought it might be a bad connection at the pico end… but seems unclear why one cable works everytime, and (many) others never.
(I did have one cable that was working intermittently for a while and now doesnt work at all)
also doesn’t matter what computer I use,which usb port I use, or if im using a powered hub.
same result, some cables work, others don’t.
when it does work… the pico is absolutely fine, the usb connection seems fine (not intermittent or anything) - just it only wants to work with one cable!
I think my Pico is sulking, as I honestly don’t use it much these days…
(*) annoyingly my long cable which was my primary cable for the pico stopped working, so I only have a 1m cable that works now.
this is partly the reason the pico doesn’t get use that much, as the cable is too short to really use for anything other than testing purposes - which is when I do drag it out
