On my original LPC1768 MBED board the file just needs to be saved on the
virtual disk. You can save as many files there as there is space on the
disk. If you press reset after saving a file on the disk, the latest
file, which was saved there will be burned to flash and then executed.

The files are all visible.

If this does not work for you, make sure to sync the disk after writing
a file to it. At least on Linux the file may not yet have been written
to the disk, and is still dangling in the cache.

So I always do a

cp my_file.bin /media/ole/MBED/ ; sync

<press reset>
