Pico fails to reboot after copying uf2

Post by rpruiz » Tue Apr 13, 2021 11:30 pm

Just that. My two pico(s) are failing to reboot after I copy any of the downloaded uf2 files I've downloaded. One from the official rpi get started page, and two from the uPy page. The pico just never reboots and is unresponsive even if I unplug and plug. If I do the BOOTSEL cycle it does show again on my finder. Any ideas of what could be happening?
I'm using a MacBook pro with the latest software and both pico(s) have been working well while using circuitpython.

The Pico doesn't expose a drive like CircuitPython does. Use Thonny or rshell to access the filesystem
