Once you've finished setting up your Raspberry Pi Pico with CircuitPython, you can access the code, audio files and necessary libraries by downloading the Project Bundle.

To do this, click on the Download Project Bundle button in the window below. It will download as a zipped folder.

Upload the Code and Libraries to the Raspberry Pi Pico

After downloading the Project Bundle, plug your Raspberry Pi Pico into the computer USB port. You should see a new flash drive appear in the computer's File Explorer or Finder (depending on your operating system) called CIRCUITPY. Unzip the folder and copy the following items to the Feather M4's CIRCUITPY drive. 

  • lib folder
  • code.py

Your Raspberry Pi Pico CIRCUITPY drive should look like this after copying the lib folder and code.py file.
