Calliope mini REV2 offers you the possibility to save 25 individual programs permanently and use them at any time.
With mini 2.0 you can now load your programs onto your flash memory. However, you can only play the programs from the MINI drive as usual.
To call the program, it must not have more than eight letters and it must be written completely in capital letters (including the .HEX extension).
The individual programs on the "FLASH" drive can be accessed via an extra menu.
If you don't know where to find the keys, you can find the information here:
|5-6 seconds press the reset button|
|Then the LED lamps flash briefly and then the first LED in the upper left corner lights up.|
|Use the buttons A and B to navigate through the stored programs. With B you can go one program forward and with A one program backward .|
|If you now press the buttons A and B simultaneously, you can start the selected program. It will now be loaded directly into the processor and executed as if you had saved it to the "MINI" drive.|
|By the way, if a X appears, there is no program on your Calliope mini.|
If you want to reload the 25 programs on your Calliope mini or need instructions, you can find them here:

We recommend that you always save the demo program of the minis (the program you were greeted with the first time you used it) on the "FLASH" drive. This way you can always activate Bluetooth on the mini. Just select the program and your mini is ready to use again.

If you are working on a Mac, you may not always be able to save 25 programs at once to the FLASH drive. Because the Mac doesn't handle the file format of the flash memory properly, invisible data is created on the drive and this data fills the drive so that it appears to be full, even though there should still be space on it.
In some cases, it may be enough to empty the Trash on your Mac, because then the hidden files on the FLASH drive are really deleted.
If the problem persists, you can start multiple copies and disconnect the mini from the USB cable in between. The mini will then delete the wrong data and make space for more programs.

Problems during data transfer
If you have actively accessed the "FLASH" menu on the Calliope mini, you will not be able to play data on the "MINI" drive. Press Reset on the mini to return to normal mode and then try again.
