Raspberry Pi 3 conncet to cell phone

I connected to a Samsung J1 Cell phone over usb with raspberry pi 3. It originally connects at /media/pi/DISK_IMG and shows sub folders and file names in that folder. However, after a very short while, it suddenly automatically changes connection. The cell phone face then says "media device” and the...

sources.list file location

I was trying to edit the "sources.list" file. Where is "sources.list" located? I did a search and found a file named "sources.list" in usr/sources/doc/apt/examples/ Since this one is in the "examples" folder, I assume it's there for demonstration as an example. Is there another "sources.list" file t...

MicroSD card not enough capacity

I created an image on a PNY 32 GB microSD card and later tried to flash it to another PNY 32 GB microSD card. However, I got an error message of not enough capacity. This was very surprising since both were the PNY and labeled as 32 GB. I then put them in a card reader and connected via USB to check...

Re: New Raspberry 3 won't boot

I take it that it's necessary to start over with a replacement os on a new SDCard. I assume this means I will lose the applications on the old raspberry wheezy SDCard (i.e. the one used with Ras2), such as samba, iceweasel, music player, etc. along with all the files saved on the old SDCard. Is this...

I notice some laptops have an HDMI port. Can a laptop serve as a monitor and audio for a raspberry pi through the HDMI connector? possibly using software on the laptop for it to simulate a TV video and audio (don't know it that is possible)
