Micro-controller: Using MSP-TS430PM64 target board to program MSP430F2419
I have been using Code Composer 5 for MSP430 development. I have had no problems loading programs into the
target micro-controller using the MSP-FET430UIF for debug work. I recently installed TI SmartRF Flash Programmer so I can flash program a .hex file onto the target micro-controller. The tool appeared to install correctly on my system but it does not recognize the MSP-FET430UIF emulator. When I open the MSP430 tab on the flash programmer tool it displays the following:
Status: IN USE
Port Name: COM4
Device Name: UNKNOWN
When I click the "Refresh" button on the flash programmer tool, the red LED on the MSP-FET430UIF flashes a few times then goes back to just the green LED.
I have seen the status change to "AVAILABLE" and show the Device Name "MSP430F2419" once. When it showed up once, it failed to program showing the message "Programming failed: Could not find device (or device not supported)"
