Naze 32 - No response from the bootloader, programming failed - error message


Junior Member

I bought a Naze 32 on the net. I try to Flash the firmware (which is the first step in the config presented by Josh on the article for the quad) but i got this message " No response from bootloader, programming FAILED". :(

I'm new, it's my first quad, what should I do? Do you have an easy answer, kind of step by step (I'm french).

Thank you :)

If you have installed the proper USB drivers for your operating system, if necessary, the next likely step is to try a different USB cable. Many inexpensive charging cables lack the necessary data lines.

Bon chance!

You still need to install the USB driver or else your Mac won't "see" the Naze board.
You can download it here-
If this still does not work you'll need to obtain a USB cable that can handle the data connection.
As Mak said - they are Not all the same......
Most charging cables that come with cell phone are not capable of making a data connection.

Did you install the appropriate driver?
If you did, what type of cable did you use?
If it was one you got with a cell phone it probably won't work.
I would buy a new one. Try Monoprice or Amazon.
You want a "real" USB cable not an OTG charging cable.

Best regards,
