CLUE nRF52840 BLE won't create CIRCUITPY drive

by bdsvac on Mon Feb 03, 2020 10:19 pm

I just got my CLUE put it into boot mode. The drive shows up and I'm able to save the original contents. I downloaded CLUE the .uf2 and wrote that to the boot drive and the little snake displays on the LCD. I'm able to put it in boot mode again and copy the original file back and it displays all the sensor values. No matter what I try I am unable to see a CIRCUITPY drive. I've tried on two windows 10 machines both running windows 10 and a raspberry pi 4. Any ideas? Has anyone else had a similar issue? I should add that I'm also able to see output in the Mu serial monitor.

I don't know anything about Clue. Just curious about new product.
Did you download adafruit-circuitpython-clue_nrf52840_express-en_US-5.0.0-beta.4.uf2 from https://circuitpython.org/board/clue_nrf52840_express/?
Did you have to press the reset button twice to access the Clue boot drive like in other products?
What's is the name of Clue boot drive, CLUEBOOT I am guessing?
With other products once the copy of the CircuitPython uf2 is completed you see the boot drive disappear and the CIRCUITPY drive shows up.

Thanks for the reply V2man. I did download the adafruit-circuitpython-clue_nrf52840_express-en_US-5.0.0-beta.4.uf2 from the the link you provided. I was able to double click the reset button and the boot drive did show up. I don't remember the name. Next, I was able to copy that file to the device's boot drive and it did unmount. It was at this point that no CIRCUITPY drive showed up and where I am stuck.

I believe beta.4 is broken for Clue. Please use the absolute latest from S3. I believe we'll get beta.5 out today which will be fixed.

The first web link I already gave you just choose Browse S3 instead.

Glad you can see the CIRCUITPY drive now!
I see Adafruit updated after I posted what I saw as the latest uf2 earlier.
