Yeah, MicroSD cards in an adapter are fine.

Re: Cannot boot raspi

The root filesystem (the non-boot partition) looks like it got seriously corrupted. You could try to recover it by sticking the card in a Linux box and running fsck on it.

The best way is to SSH in to get to terminal.

Re: Gigabit USB 2.0 Adapter on the PI?

It won't be true Gigabit (you'll be limited to 480 megabits/s) and you'll have to deal with the still fairly buggy USB firmware, but I don't really see why not!

Re: Clock is showing GMT not BST

LXDE time should just be system time

Since you're on Wheezy, try

Code: Select all

sudo raspi-config
As discussed here:

If for whatever reason it doesn't work, try

Re: HDMI to VGA Adaptor

Adapters do exist, but most are in the $100 range. One warning, do not attempt to power the adapter from the PI, as it can only deliver about 200mA, and most adapters use much more. You could put more power on the cathode of D1, but that means patching the PI, on the other hand externally powered a...

Re: HDMI -> DVI then DVI->VGA

Nope you can't use passive adapters, because HDMI-DVI will get you DVI-D but you need DVI-I (or DVI-A) for VGA.

You'll need an active converter as discussed here: http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeriphera ... y_adapters

Re: how do i play iso

You can look and see what's inside the ISO by unpacking it using a program using 7zip or something similar. My hunch is that it's just an disk image containing a bunch of other video files.

mmcblk0 is the SD card... a problem talking to it (I/O) has to do either with firmware or power issues

Dom (foundation guy) and his cohorts are working on non-standard mode support. At the moment there is no way to truly have the Pi output 1360x768 at 69MHz or 84MHz as per your EDID. (or maybe I'm reading your EDID wrong, because these sound like very non-standard refresh rates) You can try the 60Hz ...
