OK, here is what is on the drive. Looks like there is some junk on there. This is after running through this https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/6707/how-to-stop-os-x-from-writing-spotlight-and-trash-files-to-memory-cards-and-usb/7135#7135 (As recommended in the troubleshooting guide).

How can I delete these ghost files? Are these what is likely causing the issue?

Thanks again.

Again in the terminal:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
cd /Volumes/CIRCUITPY
rm -r .Trashes
rm ._code.py
rm ._richbutton.py
rm lib/._adafruit_pypixelbuf.mpy
rm lib/._neopixel.mpy


I don't know offhand what's creating the "._" files.. but they are wasting space.

Dave, you absolute brilliant genius! That cleared just enough space to get the file on. And it is now working! Thank you so much for your patience and consistent support. It was getting frustrating for me, but honestly, I felt really supported and only stayed sane by believing you could figure out the issues for me.

It's lighting red at the moment, but haven't wired up the rotary switch. I'll do that now and let you know how I get on.

Thanks again, you have really helped and I'm delighted it's working.

Best,
Neil

Excellent!

I knew there had to be somethings that was consuming that space.

Hi Dave

It's all working as per the tutorial! Worth noting that the tutorial won't work without the missing module and so others will have the same issue if the tutorial is not updated.

Thanks again for your time and patience. You can now enjoy the rest of the week without me bugging you. ;)

Cheers,
Neil

Well, CircuitPython and it's libraries are constantly evolving. That along with the smaller boards having fewer builtin modules (for space reasons) makes keeping everything up to date a bit of an ongoing chase.
