Re: Help test the next Debian image (wheezy)

This image is working fine for me. It is even working on the Sandisk Ultra class 6 16GB SD cards that I couldn't get the official Squeeze image working on (due to the "mmc timeout waiting for interrupt" issue). So thanks.

Re: SOLAR PV CONTROLLOR FOR HOT WATER IMMERSION

Well I'm thinking of doing something similar but I'm planning on hooking the raspberry pi upto my invertor via the RS485 port so that it can monitor and log the current PV output.. Out of interest mavster, which solar inverter are you going to be connecting to? The reason I ask is that I'm using on...

Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

After my previous disappointing experiences with several Sandisk cards, I can confirm the cheap-as-chips MyMemory 8GB Class 10 cards selsinork mentioned a couple of posts back work flawlessly. I've bought 3 of these now and each one has worked with no problems.

Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

And I've got the 16GB version of that very same Sandisk card (the packaging is identical apart from it says "16" instead of "4") and I can't get it to work!

How crazy is that!

Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

<t>I think it's fair to say there's still a lot of confusion around which cards work and which don't (for me, at least).<br/> <br/> I specifically bought cards because someone else in the forum reported that they worked for them - but they don't work for me <br/> <br/> And I see very similar Sandisk...

selsinork - there's a typo in your SD card images link... looks like a superfluous trailing space

Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

<t>OK - so I've now tried the class 10 card referenced earlier and my Pi will not boot.<br/> <br/> The red light comes on but there's no further activity and nothing on the display.<br/> <br/> So, even with the 19-04-2012 Debian image I can't boot from any of my Sandisk class 6 and class 10 cards.<b...

Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

Thanks Chris. I had (probably mistakenly) assumed that the problem with my class 6 cards would be the same as that affecting class 10 cards.

I've actually got a spare class 10 card (Sandisk Extreme HD Video 8GB, code BI1108716254G) so let me try that now and report back...

Re: Status of SD card compatibility - What should I buy?

<t>I initially installed the 13-04-2012 image of Debian for my Pi on an old Sandisk Extreme III 2GB SD card I had spare (code BE0715105083B), and this worked fine for initial testing.<br/> <br/> However, I wanted more storage so scanned the forum for recommendations of larger capacity cards which wo...
