I have a PIC32 Ethernet Starter Kit and i burn USB bootloader with mplab from "chipKIT32-pic32-Arduino-USB-Bootloader" ([url][/url]) the file "chipKIT32-pic32-Arduino-Bootloaderf\dist\pic32-Ethernet-starter-kit\production"

All good (board detected with new COM port) but after upload from MPIDE "Blink" example the new COM Port is disabled (work only after reburn bootloader from MPLAB). The new code is written over bootloader (i think...)

In MPIDE is selected "PIC32 Ethernet Starter Kit" from tools->boards and new com for "serial port".

So ... what is the problem

Sorry form my english...

Which serial port are you using? Serial or Serial0?

If the board has USB you may need to use Serial0.

I have never used this board, so this is only a guess.
