Network Share Refresh

I've setup 4 Pi4B (4GB) in our office and created a shared folder on the Network. This network device/drive is a usb stick on the Fritz.Box router. All devices are able to see the share and read / write files. If I create a file on the network shared device via rPi A, B or C it will not show up in t...

Re: SSH very slow - SOLVED

It's considered good form to post about how you solved the issue rather than just adding "solved" to the title and disappearing. Without your solution no-one else can learn from your situation, nor can they try your solution for themselves.

Power Supply Reporting

I've got a Pi4b with a power management board that currently takes a 12v input and converts it down to 5v. After about 12-15hrs of use I start getting 'ffff' as a result of the following command: cat /sys/devices/platform/soc/soc:firmware/get_throttled However, if I run 'vcgencmd get_throttled' it r...

Re: Running Raspbian from USB Devices : Made Easy

I was wondering if there could be some issue in the SSD partion table since the only partition on there after the script was a 4M vfat. Could it also be the case that the SSD was a "hybrid" MBR/GPT, don´t now if it would matter. I manually setup the SSD to be root filesystem, and it worke...

No one else has reported this problem with usb-boot . If you're not willing to attempt some troubleshooting, I'm afraid I can't be of much help. When did I say I was unwilling to "attempt to troubleshoot"? I simply said I hadn't tried a usb stick since I'd spent a lot of money dedicated t...

Being unfamiliar with the checking utility you are using, should it not report back 100% healthy on a new drive? Yes, but this isn't a new drive as previously stated. It is a fully operation SSD that has been wiped clean and shows as well within expected health levels for a usable SSD. Another poss...

I tried that and got the same output. I checked the drive and it's at 85% health according to CrystalDisk.

Re: Running Raspbian from USB Devices : Made Easy

It shouldn't matter, but you could try deleting all partitions first. Even better would be to use imageUSB to 'Zero USB drive' (Boot Sector(s) Only).
Great, I'll give that a try in the morning.

I'm trying to use this on a Pi 4b but not having any success. Am I right in running this as sudo bash usb-boot ? That's the only way I can get any sort of activity from the script. If I do that I get the menu system and select the ssd/usb drive. But, once I've gone through the options the script end...

Thanks for the link. I meant from a technical perspective though. I'm wondering what the theoretical max speed is.

Max SD Card Speed

Hi,

Whats the fastest read/write speed of and sd-card can the pi theoretically handle on the sdcard slot?

Is this controlled by the usb, and thus limited to 40ish mb speeds?

Any ideas/facts would be appreciated.

Thanks & MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
