Re: Cant connect to WIndows Workgroup / shared drives

Welcome to the Forums! have you installed the following packages on your RPi3B+? a. samba b. samba-common-bin if not start installing those, then edit the /etc/samba/smb.conf file oh before doing that, first better have a good read on setting up samba on RPi, so you understand what you need to do.

If you dont use the proper recommended power supply for your RPi, then there is no way to fix the problem.

Re: Prevent USB HDD from spinning down

Re: How to Configure Pi with Static IP Address?

I'm trying to make it so that no matter what network the Pi is connected to, it has the same IP address, so it can easily be connected to. OK lets assume that your router's network IP address's range is 192.168. 100 .1 ~ 254 and you set your RPi's IP address to be static at 192.168.100.105 your're ...

since the user (assume pi ) have no set permission on /media/pi how about setting and owning it permanently... 1. sudo -i ( you will be asked for a password for user ) 2. chown -R user:group /media/pi/ then set file permissions 3. chmod -R 0775 /media/pi/ then 4. exit ( back to the user prompt )

Ahhh.... the "not rebooting" type.... I think one of my setup suffered from that before.

Just to confirm, after you issued reboot command (either by GUI or command line), does the red LED turn off?

normally it wouldn't turn off during reboot, or even after issuing shutdown command..

Re: Choppy audio

Yes the TRRS jack is the 3.5mm jack on the RPi

on the raspbian desktop top right you will notice a speaker icon (usually next to a cpu usage monitor mini graph)

right click it and make sure the check is on "Analog"

then do the test again.

Re: Raspberry PI loads in emergency mode - always

So the whole setup is USB HDD boot, correct? as the power source is just 2.1A, it may not be enough to power the HDD directly from the RPi. You may have gone away with it in the past but not now. Try using a 5v 2.5A PSU, or better a 5v 3.0A PSU. if that does not do the trick, try 5v 3.0A powered USB...
