Hi Xin,

Did you update the interface firmware to the latest?

Here is an article about upgrading interface firmware of FRDM-K64F,


Please let me know if you have any questions!


Accepted Answer

Yeah, afterI drag-and-drop the firmware file onto the mounted drive, uninstall and reinstall the mbed serial driver, it still fail. All the other drivers are installed successfully except mbed serial driver, so I can't use the serial port of the board.
