Hi everyone, I help some help transferring files from my laptop to my pi. I have managed to connect to my pi using both winscp and flashfxp but when I transfer after around 30 seconds it disconnects.. Ive tried using GParted to increase the partition size but am unable to increase the 75mb but there is another partition which has plenty of storage... Any help would be appreciated... Cheers

Can you mount the second partition? Then it should show up as a folder in /mnt or /media & you should be able to cp (or scp) files into it, I think.

Is it a space issue if you log into your pi with putty (ssh client) and run "df -lh" how much space is reported for partition / or /dev/sda2 ?

The standard image is 2GB, and you will only be able to use 2GB unless you resize the root (/) partition, there are instructions on the wiki. example if you dd the image to a 16GB card you will only see 2GB usable, until you resize the root (/) partition.

What have you got attached to the USB ports, if you unplug mouse/keyboard does the disconnect still happen?

The partition size is around 2gb and around 1gb is being used so there is space for the quake files... On the guide I followed it said to transfer the files to /var/tmp but it after 20-30 seconds it crashes... I tried disconnecting USB ports but system crashes!!
