Do Raspberry Pi Model B's work with Micro SD to SD adapters?

Stupidly bought a case for a B, so to save money I just bought a Model B off ebay. I also bought a Micro SD card (intended for the B+ model) so will a SD Card adapter work for it?

Raspberry Pi B NAS is awesome.

I've been using a Raspberry Pi as a low power NAS for about 2-3 weeks now, mainly as an experiment as I wanted a Raspberry Pi for about a year now, so if it didn't work it wouldn't matter as I would have many other uses for it. The main thing I want to talk about is just how awesome it is for a low ...

Re: Horrific Raspberry Pi NAS Speeds

So yeah any solutions would be great, thanks. Before leaping in with solutions, you need to identify the problem. I use a Pi as a file server [amongst other things], and the speeds you're seeing are much less than I get. Firstly the most obvious thing to to is run a test with a wired link in place ...

Re: Horrific Raspberry Pi NAS Speeds

Think about how you've connected the network and how you've connected the HD. There's a SMSC9512 (early model Bs) or SMSC9514 (late model Bs & B+) that runs the USB 2.0 and the ethernet (which is effectively a USB 2.0 ethernet adapter). If you're running WiFi on the Pi that's running through the sa...

Horrific Raspberry Pi NAS Speeds

*Disclaimer, I am a complete Linux Noob, so Apologies if I sound like an idiot* Okay so today I made a Raspberry Pi NAS with a 60GB External Hard Drive formatted in EXT4, I used SAMBA. All is fine and dandy regarding detecting the NAS, permissions etc but there's an issue my speeds are desperate, tr...

Re: Can I power and transfer data using a powered USB hub?

Here's a source for info on hubs that don't power the input ports: http://elinux.org/RPi_Powered_USB_Hubs#Raspberry_Pi_Specific_Hubs So essentially backpowering is powering the device via the USB input ports? Correct? If this is it then would the likelihood of my USB hub backpowering be high or low?

Sorry but what do you mean by 'backpower'? I'll be using a separate PSU for the power and obviously another for the hub :P

It's unlikely not to be a 5v, 2A hub, so in terms of power delivery it should be fine.

Please can you post links to the hub you have and the drive you want to use. The USB hub is relatively old I believe it's USB 2.0 but it is powered.

I am buying a Raspberry Pi to act as a cheap media server for me to access on all of my devices and am wondering if (using a powered USB hub) I can both transfer data and power the drive using only the hub as the drive only has one USB cable rather than the usual two with SATA enclosures (power cabl...

Should I buy a Raspberry Pi or a Banana Pi for Android HTPC?

Okay so I want a low powered HTPC for my bedroom, to watch films, youtube etc but I want it to run on a new Android version.

I am stuck between the Rasp Pi and Banana Pi, thanks.

If you can suggest other alternative boards feel free :)
