Re: newly created partition disappears on USB hard drive

if you have another computer you can do this on its probably easiest to do that. the pi is more useful for programming or robotics

imaging the SD card yourself should be part of the experience, even if you use win32imager, shouldn't it?

Re: Boot not working.

I feel really noobish right now :oops: . It turns out I was using coax, not rca cable. It turns out they arent the same :lol: . But thanks for the config.txt example, i ended up having to change the overscan settings.

Boot not working.

I have tested the power supply (almost exactly 5 volts), i have tried 2 different cards and I don't know what i can do with them now. I did not use the SH...

Re: Mods for Minecraft

I read somewhere that you will be able to track player movements - so one idea of mine is a bridge that only appears for me! Much better than redstone.

Re: Model A as USB device instead of USB host?

Re: Minecraft: Pi Edition hamachi server

It should be possible, it works by setting up a VPN (this is used for lan games a lot). Anyway, the reason I have said this so early is that I was just getting the idea out there.
