Reset button does not appear to work.

My New Circuit Playground Express seems to be working fine. I am able to load new Python code, connect with REPL. The only exception that is that I cannot get into bootloader mode. A single press of the reset button does not reboot. A double press does not get me into bootloader mode. The button doesn't seem to be doing anything.

The Express does not have a bootloader like other devices. You load the file to the created USB drive and it should run from there.

virg, try the double click timing, it may take a few tries, unless clicking the reset button doesn't even reset the board?
