Re: Why some microSD cards can run raspbian while others can

I knew that fake sd cards existed. Didn't know how they affect the functionality though.
The information in this video is a bit shocking. Thanks for this.

So now I have to figure out where to get 512MB microSD cards, that are not fake.

Re: Why some microSD cards can run raspbian while others can

Everything I read suggests that the SDHC standard was created to accommodate larger capacity sd cards. It also changes the way it calculates capacity, and its backwards compatible with lower capacity cards. All my 4GB, 8GB and 16GB microSD cards can boot raspbian. I have tried them all on all my car...

Re: Why some microSD cards can run raspbian while others can

I really don't understand people who do this. If I had the time to read 30 pages of documentation on SD cards, then why would I be asking questions on these forums? Can you provide a simple explanation for the problem at hand? I'm trying to understand something here. So what you are saying is that t...

Re: Why some microSD cards can run raspbian while others can

How would an incompatible SDHC card reader, affect the microSD's ability to boot raspbian? If the microSD is detected by Windows, and I can copy the raspbian image on it, what difference does it make if the card reader is SDHC compatible or not? Unless there's something I'm not understanding correct...

Re: Why some microSD cards can run raspbian while others can

Unless you use the net-installer, in which case a 512MB microSD will suffice. The point is, some cards work, others don't. Space is not the issue.

Re: Why some microSD cards can run raspbian while others can

No its not a size issue, there's plenty of space on the microSD.
It shouldn't matter if they are fake or not. They are working under Windows.

Why some microSD cards can run raspbian while others can't?

I have a few microSD cards, ranging from 512MB to 16GB, all of which are working perfectly when copying files under Windows. No indications of any issues with any of them, and I've formatted, and copied files on them multiple times. The issue is that not all of them can run raspbian. Some of them bo...

remove all messages during ssh login

What is the proper way to remove all messages during ssh login, on raspbian? (motd, version info, etc)
In Ubuntu I would do it like this:

Code: Select all

Comment out printf lines in:
nano /etc/update-motd.d/00-header
nano /etc/update-motd.d/10-help-text

touch ~/.hushlogin
Thanks

I followed these instructions in order to run Raspbian from a USB, instead of the micro-SD. After I set everything up, I imaged the USB and then "burned" it on a bigger USB. Now I need to expand the / partition to occupy the rest of the unused space on the USB. raspi-config can't do it, I think it's...

I've looked around and all I can find is people testing micro-sd card speeds. I don't care for speed. Class4 works fine for me. What I do need is reliability.
