Circuit express boards

Hi all!
I am trying to use the adafruit circuit express boards in unit 6 on physical computing . . I have the code maker app on our macbooks and the usb cables . … but the boards usually do not connect . . argh!

@jim.cibulka ,

Here is a link to a page on using the Circuit Playground Express. Halfway down the page is a section on debugging. If you haven’t gone through that yet, this could be a help for you. If you are still having issues, you could contact support@code.org or reply back here with some specifics on what you’ve tried and what error messages if any you are getting.

Thanks . . .

Turns out they do not work if you do not click the gear icon first . . . weird . . I thought the self test on lesson 6 part 3 was good enough . . .nope!

My boards are fine now . . .

Great! Glad to hear that.
