Circuit Playground Express -3 Issues

by Jmarco1955 on Sun Oct 10, 2021 12:43 pm

Greetings to all. I'm new to programming and I'm having issues with Circuit Playground Express and the Crickit board.

I'm using a Raspberry Pi for the computer.

Issue 1: The 5 minute quick start guide examples download on page 10 does not take you to the .zip file indicated

Issue 2: The Circuit Playground PDF Guide is empty after page 8.

Issue 3: When I plug in the Express board, it kills the USB WiFi on the Raspberry Pi.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks in advance. Jim

Just to be sure we are talking about the same thing could you post links to the pages you are referencing in your issues? Have you tried to plug the CPX into your regular computer?

The WiFi issue was just that...Not related...The other issues were fixed by using a Windows machine...The CPX and expansion board both work fine...I'm new to all of this so there's a lot of operator error...Thanks again for your help...Jim
