SD card write protected

Has anyone successfully recovered a NOOBS card that says it is write protected? I have read numerous posts and solutions but still appears there is no solution other than the card is bad. It started when I used Win32DiskImger to install a new image file (Octopi). I noticed I still had the old Jessie...

Mounting Pi SD card on a USB reader to fix issues

Thanks, that works. Note I'm new to Linux so finding out how to mount the USB reader was a challange. So here are instructions that I used for anyone else in this predicament: The PI SD card has at least two partitions. The first one is Fat32 and can be edited in Windows. However I didn't know how t...

boot hangs, how to continue?

[moved to the New Linux user help section] I changed the /etc/fstab file to add a network share. I guess I got the syntax wrong because now during boot the Pi hangs on "configuring network interfaces".

To start with just the command line, load the Debian Wheezy beta which has SSH enabled and then use a SSH program (on wind...

Re: Now my raspberry pi works with all my SD cards

Well, the internal pullups are certainly working, at least for me. I have an unbranded micro-sd card with adapter, which would fail during Debian boot, but after I replaced the bootloader.bin with the latest one, it started working. The OK led is on sooner after power-on than before... Same here. I...

Re: VNC Server to Boot on Logged In User

Very much a beginner here but I got this to work just following the steps on the penguin tutor website. Note I think there is one error with the startup script that creates the script vncserver - Line 4 where he lists his web address. #!/bin/sh # /etc/init.d/tightvncserver # Customised by Stewart Wa...
