Re: Making a bluetooth device work as USB

It IS possible to do this by buying a dongle like the Laird 820 which can run the Bluetooth stack within the dongle and present itself to the host as a USB keyboard.

That site only has software for systems based on Intel compatible CPUs. The Raspberry Pi has an ARM CPU and that site has no compatible downloads.

Re: VC1-MPG2 PROBLEM

As far as I know, omxplayer is the only way to get hardware accelerated Video that uses the GPU and codecs.

There may be other ways of doing this, but I am not aware of them.

Re: VC1-MPG2 PROBLEM

VLC does not use hardware acceleration (I.e. the codec via the GPU). You should instead try omxplayer if you want hardware acceleration of video playback.

Re: PI3 not operate

Also, the SD card must be in FAT32 format (and not exFAT). You may have to install a 3rd party tool to do this on a 64GB card as Windows will only allow exFAT for cards over 32GB.

Re: BOOT ERROR- unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(179

The partitions are as expected. The first (small) one is the boot partition and the rest is the main Linux partition.

I suspect that thete is a problem with the SD card at the hardware level so that part of it is failing to read properly.

Re: Putty Not working

What type of connection are you trying to use in putty (telnet or ssh)? Sounds as if you selected the wrong one.

Also, what OS are you trying to use? If you are using NOOBS then until you have installed an OS ( e.g. Raspbian) and booted into it then you cannot make a connection via putty.
