Keybow2040 can't drag and drop files in macOS Ventura


Keybow 2040 “Venus Dust”

you can’t drag and drop files in macOS Ventura - the file is created but it has zero bytes

you need to use the command line

% cp /Users/stephendegabrielle/Downloads/adafruit-circuitpython-pimoroni_keybow2040-en_GB-7.3.3.uf2 /Volumes/RPI-RP2/

it gives this error but successfully copies the file

cp: /Users/stephendegabrielle/Downloads/adafruit-circuitpython-pimoroni_keybow2040-en_GB-7.3.3.uf2: could not copy extended attributes to /Volumes/RPI-RP2/adafruit-circuitpython-pimoroni_keybow2040-en_GB-7.3.3.uf2: Attribute not found

Is there a way to fix this?

best regards,


Sounds like you might be running into ‘the Ventura problem’ - Raspberry Pi did a blog about it (with some details/workarounds) here: The Ventura problem - Raspberry Pi
