Circuit Playground Express - Not Connecting

by MrHanTalks on Wed May 18, 2022 12:57 pm

I have a class set of Circuit Playground Express, but my computer cannot find it. I tested it on a Macbook Air and a PC.

Here is what I get when I double-click on the Reset button.

To prove that I have Circuit Playground Express (not some other product), here is an image of the back.

Have you tried connecting directly, not through a hub?
Have you read through this page? It might help. https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-circuit-playground-express/updating-the-bootloader

do you know for a fact that the USB cable is both power and sync/data? short cables like that are often charge only
