  1. Hi All, So sorry for the late reply. I just got back from a long vacation. I have good news. At first I was able to load a bit file using only this flash drives: 1. https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-DataTraveler-101-G2-DT101G2/dp/B008C4JIUE 2. https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Cruzer-Blade-SDCZ50-008G-SDCZ50/dp/B01276IYYS/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1502175071&sr=1-3&keywords=SDCZ50-008G These are the ones that does not work: 1. 8 gig version of this, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UW3JRIG/ref=olp_product_details?_encoding=UTF8&me= 2. https://www.amazon.com/16GB-USB-3-0-DATATRAVELER-G4/dp/B01MDODFQ0/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1502175335&sr=8-3&keywords=datatraveler+g4+16gb I don't have have then other one right now so I cannot give the part number or link of that. I then tried loading the files given by @elodg and amazingly the first drive that does not work has now work! Soon if I get hold of other flash drives I will test it. But I am already happy now so I think this issue is now closed. Thank you so much for the support. Kudos to all of you from Digilent and everyone who respond to this post. Regards, Nico C.
  2. Hello @jpeyron, Thanks a lot. I really appreciate it. Hello @sbobrowicz, I tried renaming it to demo.bit but it still did not load. Regards, Nico C.
  3. Hello @jpeyron, I have tried at least 3 USB flash drives. Regards, Nico C.
  4. Hello jpyron, Thank you for the reply. Sorry I forgot to mentioned that I tried multiple bit files which I tested to be working using Adept to programmed the Nexys 3. I also tried the verification bit file which is specifically for the Nexys 3 board found here, https://reference.digilentinc.com/reference/programmable-logic/nexys-3/start?redirect=1. Only a single bit file is stored on the flash drive that is why in my screen shot above the occupied space is only 460kb. Regards, Nico C.
  5. Hello Hamster, thanks for the fast response. The flash drives I used is FAT32. I have attached an image. I even formatted it to default to be sure. But it still did not programmed the Nexys 3.
  6. Good day everyone! I need help on programming the Nexys 3 using a USB memory stick. Here is what I tried so far: 1. Save a single .bit file to a USB memory stick. I have tried my own .bit files as well as the Digilent's Built-In Self Test. I have also tried two USB flash drives. 2. Connect two jumpers on the mode switches. I have also tried none and mode 0 only. 3. I then attached the USB flash drive to the Nexys 3 and press the reset button. But unfortunately the bit file does not get programmed to the FPGA. The <busy> LED beside the USB port on the Nexys 3 is forever blinking at a slow rate. Does anyone tried configuring the Nexys 3 using a USB flash drive? Thank you. Note: I tried it on another Nexys 3 board but also fails to load the bit file. Regards, Nico C.
  7. Hello all. Please I need help on turning on the back light of the PMODCLP. It was not connected so I manually attach a 5v supply with a 200 ohm resistor. Does anyone has any idea how to activate the back light? Thank you.
