I have tried using sam-ba 3.1.3 with Debian 8.5 and windows 10. For both operating systems I get the error as indicated above about switching to binary mode.

Does anyone know what this is occuring and is there a solution.

I have tried this on VirtualBox v5.1.2 running Debian 8.5 guest on a Windows 10 host, a Linux Machine also running Debian 8.5, and a windows 10 machine. all three have the same error.

Regards
Lachlan

Have you tried opening a normal serial port with the device connected?

Thanks for your reply.

I finally determined that I need to hold a button down on the board on reset to bring the processor up with the port in Binary mode.
Problem solved.
Thanks for your help.
