Re: Showing Previous Micro SD Card (Screen Problem?)

I realized I can use Raspbian for my project. I got it to load on my Raspi using Windisk32, with the proper configuration screen on a blue background: https://www.google.com/search?q=raspbian+first+time+configuration&client=firefox-a&hs=u7i&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&channel=fflb...

From the first reply you were given in this topic -
Always! Always! Always! Unplug the pi before removing the SD card. It needs the boot process when you turn it on to properly show the OS
I agree!
Will do, thanks.

Re: Showing Previous Micro SD Card (Screen Problem?)

So what should I try, ripping the SD card out and reformat it? Should I just pull out the SD card, wipe it, and put Berryboot on it again, and then put it back in my Raspi B+? Would that fix it? No guarantees, but it can't hurt to try. What else could I do? Also, should I unplug it before pulling o...

PiGlow and RasClock

I'm wondering if these two additions used simultaneously would fit on the the Raspi B+, if anyone's had any problems with either of these products, or if the PiGlow would not be visible (would the RasClock cover it up?) https://www.modmypi.com/blog/installing-the-rasclock-raspberry-pi-real-time-cloc...

Re: Showing Previous Micro SD Card (Screen Problem?)

With a few (tiny, obscure and irrelevant) exceptions, the Raspberry Pi board itself is totally volatile - it has no storage of its own that can retain content over a power off and reboot. It always reverts back to the way it was when it came out of the factory. If you have an SD card that boots to ...

Why 8Gbyte and NOOBS? It's the 32Gbyte card the OP wants Berryboot on.
What do you mean?

Are Kootek heatsinks worth it? If I change out the paste, what thermal paste should I use? I heard the cheap paste that comes on them is terrible. (This will be for a B+.)

Playing YouTube MP3 Files

I plan on downloading youtube files to mp3 format using http://www.youtube-mp3.org/ . I want to play these files on my iHome (better speaker recommendations would be appreciated) using the AUX line. I want it to shuffle songs, but also play specific songs I type in the name of. How hard would this be?

Re: [Tutorial] Show RPI's Temperature with a command.

Any way to set this sensor to check temp every 5 minutes, and shut down if the pi gets too hot?

Could internal temp be displayed on Piglow? (Cool=no lights on, very hot=all lights on bright) :D
