Re: Unable to boot Raspberry Pi

What brand is the SD card? Who did you buy it from? After plugging it in and waiting for a while have you tried to SSH into the Pi? From your description it sounds like one of two problems. The first is that the SD may have not been imaged properly. The second could be that the Pi is working fine an...

If you didn't check with a measurement tool (like a DMM, or O-Scope) then there is no way to know if the mouse is getting power or not. So we can help can you first tell us if you are using a R Pi A, B, or B+? Most likely you have a PSU that is too weak and one of your components is drawing too much...

Re: Exit button for SNES USB controller

Also there are generally " around the values. I don't know if RetroArch's parser cares but it may. For instance you have pasted:

Code: Select all

input_enable_hotkey_btn = 8
input_exit_emulator_btn = 7
And mine looks something like this:

Code: Select all

input_enable_hotkey_btn = "8"
input_exit_emulator_btn = "9"

Re: Exit button for SNES USB controller

Have you bothered to check what button numbers the start and select buttons on your SNES pad are?

This is typically done with "jstest"

Edit: To answer another question. Yes it works fine on every setup I have but I've had trouble with it in the past.

Re: RPi damaged

Modern IDE cables have multiple pins connected internally. It seems likely that you shorted 5V to some GPIO pins and fried the chip. From some googling it seems you should have created a power-ground short which would have provided some protection but it's possible that other pins connected first, ...

Re: Electrical information

from??? 0..85°C ??? -20 to 80c ... Is the rating of the memory chip. Everything else has wider rating. Do you know how I found that? I put "raspberry pi operating temp" into Google and read the first post by an engineer. Anyway, the 85c I said before is the point where the SOC throttles the device.

Seems like it has good specs. The price isn't bad for what it is. I have never had luck getting one in a reasonable amount of time. You are kind of on your own with most software on it. The community isn't nearly as good.

A SATA port would be real nice on it. That would make it a descent NAS.

Re: RaspBerry Pi(e) Model C (imaginations & wants)

The problem is that not every thing shrinks in a liner manner. It pretty much takes complete re-engineering. Some features scale well and others don't. There is also a reason why many microcontrollers (not that the Pi has a uc) are sill produced at over 90nm and that is leakage. 14 nm isn't going to...
