SD CARD copier

Sun Jan 21, 2018 12:14 am

This is in accessories of PI. How does it work? I want to copy from 1 SD to another. Do I need 2 PIs working at same time for this?

You need a USB SDHC Card Reader.
My only "PC" is an Asus ChromeBit running ChromeOS, cloudcentric at its best !

Thanks. Not familiar with this. So I stick the reader on the computer USB port and copy to the RPI directly?

No.
You connect the cardreader to a USB port on the RPi. The SD card (Running OS) in the RPi is then copied to the SD card in the cardreader.
Go here for my RPi writeup. Basic config, Serial Port add-on etc:

Rather than 'ping pong' questions here, maybe you should read what the Raspberry Pi Foundation wrote in the blog post that introduced this utility 18 months ago?

See https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/anothe ... -raspbian/, under the heading SD card copier.
