Most of us know the theory of how these things need to be wired, if we're going to help we need to know whether theory matches reality.
Ok. I'll get an actual photo

Temperature Not Reading

So I got a temperature sensor that is a DHT22 and I am using https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Python_DHT for the reading. This is the code I use https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Python_DHT/blob/master/examples/AdafruitDHT.py. I run it in the terminal starting with cd Adafruit_Python_DHT/ the...

Re: Camera Crashing Pi(s)

I would expect the Pi to start up even with a on the edge power supply, since the camera does not take power until turned on - you woudl expect the Pi to drop out at that point. My suspicion is a broken camera, assuming the cable and connections are correct. I will buy a new raspberry pi camera I m...

Re: Arduino + Pi

Yes. What do you want to do? Receive data from the Arduino on the Pi or Send data from the Pi to the Arduino? Either way, firmata is a simple method of communicating between the two https://raspberrypi-aa.github.io/session3/firmata.html http://madeformakers.org/using-firmata-to-share-information-be...

Is it possible to use an Arduino with a Pi and if so do you have a link to a website with a project using both.

Re: SD Card Copier

Since we don't know what you're trying it is next to impossible to tell you what's wrong as most of our crystal balls went offline in the "Great Crystal Ball Disaster" of 1989. The Raspbian GUI has a "piclone" program that should do what you want. Lol, you'll have to pardon me, I'm a noob. I think ...

Or it claims to be 2.5A. The claim and reality may not match under load.
Probably, it is CanaKit if you know anything about that. I'll try another power supply i have.

I have turned on the camera in raspi-config on BOTH. And nope did not work. I have installed raspbian in 2 differe...
