Re: Intenso 320 GB External USB hard drive ticks

It means the external drive isn't getting enough power. I'd suggest connecting it via a powered usb hub.

Re: Access Denied

Could you post the result of doing -

Code: Select all

cd /media/PIDRIVE/mcpi

(This won't make the program run, It's just to let us see what files Minecraft has installed for you.)

Daylight Saving Time does not come into effect at the same time throughout the world - think of the seasons in Australia!

You can adjust the displayed time for yourself in your own settings under Board Preferences.

Re: ssh?

PS: it is generally considered polite to ask your question only once. Most people ready and willing to answers questions will be reading the whole forum, so posting in multiple places doesn't improve your chances of a reply, and may confuse with conflicting advice if the threads diverge.

Re: ssh?

There's a mismatch of expectations and reality here... It would help if your question said what you hoped to achieve. ssh gives you a command line (shell) interface to your Pi. startx starts the x-windows interface on your Pi with the output displayed on the directly-connected screen on your Pi, if ...

This might help with connecting temperature sensors. [Note that Step One is now not needed for recent (2013) releases of Raspbian-Wheezy]

I thought perhaps that was what you were asking.

The Raspberry Pi has an ARM cpu. It will not run Microsoft operating systems.

You might be able to access the media files on your drive, but you will not be able to run the server OS.
