Circuit PLayground BLE makecode file not transferring

by jwex on Thu Feb 27, 2020 9:45 am

Hello, I have two brand new Circuit Playground BLE boards here. I have an issue that is the same as in this thread here, but this was never really answered:

viewtopic.php?f=64&t=142297&p=703087&hilit=makecode+transfer#p703087

* I can enter boot loader mode fine (all green LEDs)
* I see the drive CPLYBTBOOT in Windows Explorer (win10)
* I can view the files on the drive
* I can transfer files to the drive
* The board never goes back to normal mode to execute the file after I upload. It stays all green.
* After a while, it goes back to the old animation, and my copied file has disappeared!
* When I click reset, the original rainbow animation is back
* The board is visible in the windows device manager
* I have tried 3 different USB cables and two boards
* I have tried deleting the "CURRENT.uf2" file, it is back on there after reset.

Any help is appreciated, my ten year old daughter is getting somewhat impatient... :-)

Thank you!

PS: I can install Circuitpython and transfer programs just fine.

Follow Up:
I suspect that circuitpython is preinstalled, and this is what is causing a problem with makecode. I stumbled across instructions about moving from cp to makecode here:
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-cir ... ecode-18-3

what also makes me suspect that somehow I am "in CP mode" is that I need two reset clicks to go into bootloader mode.

THanks for your help

OK, not supported yet. That's a shame.

Wow, thanks very much! So the product page should be updated... I will try this later today.
