Update from USB?


New Member
Is it possible to build a PICAXE project that will automatically update its program if a valid file is present on a USB drive?

I does not hurt to plan ahead!

Technically possible if using a 28X2 or 40X2 with an external I2C EEPROM but rather tricky and a convoluted process with the risk that something could go wrong and you'll have to reprogram via serial to recover the situation.

I believe there has been past discussion on doing those on the forum. My opinion is that it likely wouldn't be worth the effort.
