It could be the problem is not your RPi or your SD card but the other computers. Highly unlikly given the number and variations you have tried.Having completed an install of an image on your SD card of choice at any point you can insert the card in any reader now if you view the card from Linux you can see the Raspberry partition but from Windows or a Mac you can only see 12 files for Wheezy installs.
A lot of noob users are concerned upon loading their image file to a larger card say 32Gig then looking at the image with windows only seeing a 58 meg partition do not worry there is a larger second part that is just not visible from Windows and once installed into a RaspberryPi this will come into force and even looking at the SD card with Linux it will look like it is not using all of the card.
Upon starting Wheezy with a Composite (RCA) or HDMI screen the script raspi-config will run automaticaly
If you choose there is the option of doing a Blind Login using Putty or another ssh login information here RPi_A_Method_for_ssh_blind_login if you choose this option you have to run raspi-config manually.
raspi-config also has the EXPAND-ROOTFS option which sets up the SD to Expand the root file system to make maximum use of the available space on the SD card next time it's booted and that reboot will take a couple of minutes longer.
Not a bad idea. We've all been assuming that the OP wrote the card himself and therefore his card reader must be OK. But maybe that is a false assumption.tarjalan wrote:You state that you have tried 3 computers but did these 3 computers have different card readers.
I have a card reader that doesn't like larger sdhc cards for some reason and had to buy another that would read a 32gb card.
Just an idea.
Does the camera support SDHC cards? Mine doesn't. It can only cope with SD cards up to 2GB.obcd wrote:He even tried his camera.
I guess that's not with the sd card reader(s) he was using with the pc's.
