Re: Windows goes nuts reading SD card after formatted by Noo

Re: Suggestions for project box standoffs and connection por

Kudos on your various setups.

And fortunately I've got a ziplock full of small bolts from leftovers from all the tower systems I've built. Just not many standoffs for some reason.

Said the device was mounted, then that it cannot continue, and was aborting. No doubt for the reason ShiftPlusOne said. Thx.

Seems Raspian does not recognize its own partition format?

Can someone explain what is going on here? fdisk says the main Raspbian partition is not recognized and should be wiped! Is this to be expected for some reason? Not a linux guru...

How best use mSD or USB cards that are > 32G

I've found the procedures to SDFormat and guiformat a 64G SD card and that works. At least through Pi3 OS installations but don't put the card back into Windows or it may get corrupted and cause Windows File Explorer crashes. Is there a similar 32G limitation with USB flash drives? Or should >32G fo...

Re: Windows goes nuts reading SD card after formatted by Noo

@WHH - thanks. @wh7qq - wish rpo would upgrade their search engine. Thx for all the ideas. I will spin up an Ubuntu box for these sorts of things as my software will support most clients including pi3 with .NET Core under Linux and WinIoT and want other Linuxes anyway. I'm mostly Windows but do Linu...

Windows goes nuts reading SD card after formatted by Noobs

I'm having a problem trying to read anything off the SD card after it was formatted by Noobs. Windows 10 File Manager sorta goes nuts until the card reader is removed. Crashes and complains about bad drives that need to be scanned and fixed. SDFormatter can't even recognize anything as the drop down...

Suggestions for project box standoffs and connection ports?

Apparently there are lots of generic project enclosure boxes to choose from, so am hoping for some suggestions on what others have done in regards to adding standoffs for a Pi3 board and a relay board, and connection ports for passing in wires such as high and low voltage power. Thx

Re: Project case

Turns out Amazon has quite a few if you search for "project enclosures" or "project box" rather than what I had originally searched for. Am going to open a new thread regarding best ways on how to use these boxes. Thx all.

Re: Where best to discuss .NET Core?

Btw, normal for WinIoT programming is to use UWP but with .NET Core installed, under WinIoT or Linux, then you can also program in the .NET Core framework. Note UWP cannot be used under Linux however at this time.

Where best to discuss .NET Core?

I'm building Pi3's with both Raspian/Ubuntu Linux with .NET Core and WinIoT with .NET Core.
Where should .NET Core under either be discussed? On the Pi forums or some others?

Thx, Dave

Re: Berryboot vs. Noobs

I tried Bootberry but it did not offer the latest Raspbian Pixel image so am sticking with Noobs for now. I saw an article showing how to add custom images but it was more involved that what I want to do right now as it seemed to require formatting the partition format to Squash.

Re: Booting from USB flash drive

That article is some unclear to me. It says "Once this bit has been set, the SD card is no longer required. Note that any change you make to the OTP is permanent and cannot be undone." (hence one time programmable I guess) but what are the implications? Will it no longer boot off SD even if the SD i...
