SD card not writing?

Tue Feb 24, 2015 10:30 am

I think there is a problem with mt micro SD:

I used a sony micro SD card

I updated the existing raspberry B image with the info given here;

http://thepihut.com/blogs/raspberry-pi- ... berry-pi-2

updated the raspberry B distro for raspberry 2

wrote the image from the SD card to a folder, then wrote it to the micro SD card.

said completed, but when I inspected the card I saw no files on it?

tried a total of 3 times with same result???


what am I missing

Download this: http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/NOOBS_latest

Unzip it to the root of a freshly formatted SDCard (using the SDformatter (with size adjust on) or your camera or tablet)
Connect your RPi to your TV, plug in a mouse, boot it & follow the menus.

I don't know the differences between NOOBs and Tweezy, But I want to write my current Rpi image to my
new Rpi 2

I have tried this again using win32DiskImage, and it has completed

I can see no files present on the microSD??

what is going on here

Did you use Win32diskimager to create the image of the Pi B SD card?

Format the MicroSD card first with SD formatter and follow the instructions at http://www.raspberrypi.org/documentatio ... windows.md.
Of course you leave out the bit about unzipping the file...
Eject the card and pop it back in again to see what files are on the card.
