Re: Pi 4 usb-boot questions for RonR

Forget Noobs. Remove it, start with a fresh OS on CD.

usb-boot does its work, leaves some extras on the SD to make it possible to boot again from SD, read the description about that.

Re: Can't get 3.5" LCD to work with Pi 4

The ebay url has a simple instruction:

Before you use screen, you need to install a driver for the screen in your system

And that is it. :D :( :o Typical ebay seller!

You could try to ask the seller for support, I hope but doubt he will be able to.

Re: RP4 Not booting any OS.

What power supply?

Other SD card?

Other SD card adapter on PC?

And when you have to change the start4.elf it is possible Kali image is not fit for the RPi 4.

Re: Silent movies ended more than 100 years ago!

I agree with the OP that recording audio when you have a Raspberry Pi camera is a 'modern' thing.
Having an USB audio adapter is one thing, the software side also needs to be able to do something with that.

So far so good, and I saw one answer pointing to a possible solution.

Re: HQ camera module

You did not tell us what version of Raspbian you are using.
Since the hardware seems to work, and software for older camera work it has to be outdated/corrupt software.

So download latest, install on fresh SD card and test again.

HQ Camera and Canon EF-S lenses

Since I have some Canon EF-s lenses for my DSLR cameras and the HQ camera has the facility to change lenses, I did some experiments to see if the combination makes sense. So I got a HQ camera with the 6mm and 16mm lens, a Raspberry 3B+ from my RPi stock and 3d printed the Canon EF to C mount adapter...

Re: Best Operating System for Raspberyy Pi?

The answer of course depends on what you want to do with the Raspberry Pi, what application/purpose. There is no 'best' without this question. Start with that question and you may get a better answer than 'Raspbian' Raspbian is the easy answer since it covers most purposes. runs on all Pi's and is w...

Re: Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera

Hope some one makes some 'camera review' quality pictures. Compared with camera's in the same price range (16 mm + new camera + raspberry) and not with the other Pi camera's.

I have seen on twitter some photos made by biglesp with the 16 mm lens and they are not convincing yet.

Re: Use micro USB as UART on PI Zero for external wifi module

Sure the USB wireless adapter works after your rewiring the USB and disabling wifi?

Just plugging in a wireless adapter will give you a second wifi channel that works on a Pi, if you ave set the country right. Once that works try to disable the onbaord wifi.

what does lsusb tell you?

Re: Use micro USB as UART on PI Zero for external wifi module

Using a USB serial adapter is required here and those works fine on the RPi. Nearly all types (FTDI, CH340, PL2303) are autodetected and deliver a ttyUSB0 device. Check the voltages of the D1 Mini UART and choose your USB serial adapter if it needs 3.3V or 5V. And do not be confused what is called R...

Copying a running OS, it may work, but with an open database?

Remove your current SD, Boot from fresh SD with OS, add an external SD card reader, insert your SD with MysSQL system in that reader, copy to hard disk drive.
