Re: Read files on a USB stick

i had the gui start automatically -- that wasnt the problem -- could a 16gb be too big for it or something?

Re: Read files on a USB stick

Ok -- so let me get this straight BEFORE I reinstall raspian. (1) I install raspian (2) update/upgrade (3) when I'm in the OS after booting, I simply insert the USB stick and it will prompt me asking me to log in on the drive (it's a cruzer 16gb) (4) (most important) -- there is nothing else is requ...

Re: Read files on a USB stick

Nope.

I just installed form noobs the other day -- have done update and upgrade but somethings fishy with my install I think. So, it should show a prompt when I install the stick?

Re: Read files on a USB stick

Let me start over -- i thought it detected the usb stick but it was the sd card I was seeing. I have raspian running and just inserted the usb drive (sandisk cruzer 16gb) -- now what? I don't see anything referring to it anywhere in file mgr or otherwise. Even if I reboot or just insert it after reb...

Re: Read files on a USB stick

Thanks much, yes, I'm using the gui (raspian) and I did see it in media but out to lunch on how to read the files on it. I looked everywhere in file manager with no luck. Something simple I'm sure.

Well nice to know that raspian detected it anyway.

Read files on a USB stick

I've searched but would like a straightforward tutorial on reading files off a USB stick (PI with Raspian). I plugged in the stick, thinking it would be intelligent enough to recognize it but silly me -- I guess is it's much more than that.

Thank you.

Re: Noobs -- Raspian ??

Thanks klricks -- I understand. I realize it's supposed to be no frills anyway.

And yes Doug my Google is broken -- Mr. Politenessman -- I never ask anything on a forum unless I search first.

Thanks for the link however. I do appreciate it.

Re: Noobs -- Raspian ??

Ok but just as an opinion, it would seem that something as basic as screen resolution and power options would be nice to have in Raspbian's GUI. -- just sayin' Is there a nice chart somewhere for often used command line instructions? A little cheat sheet so to speak? Also -- went to the PI store, th...

Re: Windows text file to the PI

Ok -- didn't know that. Guess I should be posting on beginners. So, do you think it will handle my windows written *.py file ok? or will I have to edit it when I bring it up on the PI?

thanks friends.

Noobs -- Raspian ??

Ok, so I used Noobs to install Raspian on my PI model B and it doesn't seem adequate somehow. I did an update and upgrade as well. Is there something lacking in the Raspbian install on Noobs compared to installing it alone? Or once you get it installed, certain packages that need to be downloaded to...

Re: Windows text file to the PI

I never tried because they're different file systems, right? Windows files are not compatible with Linux -- correct? Hence, my original question.

Windows text file to the PI

Wrote a lot of code on my Windows laptop using IDLE and need to move it to my PI/Raspian/IDLE setup. What is a simple way of doing this?

I want to use a USB stick if I can. Thanks much.

Re: GPIO with IDLE/Windows

Yes, Idle runs OK on the Pi. I think all the tutorials assume you are using the Pi. It would be pretty unusual to do anything like this in combination with Windows. For example, where on a Laptop do you plug in the GPIO connector? You don't, because the GPIO connector is Raspberry specific. Well, i...

Every single piece of info on installing RPi.GPIO shows how to install using Linux but I'm using IDLE on my Windows 7 laptop. So, how do you install using Windows?
