The PyGamer is showing the DigiKey/Adafruit intro/game - not sure if that is MAKE:Code or not. Single click turns the lights red, then it reboots right back into the game. My Arudino IDE shows now device or port connected. Tried multiple systems (PC/OSX) and it doesn't register a connect. frustrated..

hmm can you get a photo showing a close up of the USB port on the pygamer? it sounds like the USB connection isnt coming 'thru' and thats why it isnt going into the bootloader

I'll note - when connected vis USB the charge light blinks constantly (very fast) should be visible in the photo. (I dont have any type of battery hooked up)

Update - THANK YOU!

I just got the replacement and as soon as I plugged it in it worked! Also test upload of my own arduino sketch - and fully working!

Thanks you again for the help!
