I paste the compiled mbed_blinky_ARCH_MAX.bin to the mbed-disk. it flashes the LEDs(lpc11u35) but then it is deleted. Nothing else occur! No execution..

That behaviour is as expected. After flashing the file is removed again from the drive (which ejects itself to shows this to you).

Thanks for the answer. I had expected the disappearance *.bin as a feedback. Indeed, the loaded program does not start.

At CRP DISABLD disk i've loaded the:

The Arch Max expects a .bin file rather than a .hex file. Make sure you compile for the correct target processor. Also make sure the target processor is not running some application that disables the SWD programming port. .
