So I have not had much luck with my Pi so far. I have been trying to run RaspBMC on it and keeps hanging/crashing and giving error messages. I have found a bad network cable (and made a new one and tested as good), had a bad card reader (now have a good one), and the new SD card that I bought (Adata class 10 8gb - listed as working) just keeps throwing errors after continuous use.
So I have a new SD card on order and am wondering what else could be wrong.
Today I tested the 2 power to usb adapters (one is a genuine apple 5v 1a output) the other is the same, but is a dve switching adapter (no clue what that is from). When I plugged in my Blackberry to them to charge it said insufficient power, so now I am thinking my chargers are not good. I have measured the voltage across the TP1 and TP2 pins with both chargers and am getting 5v with no noticable drops.
Is there any way to test the chargers and see if they are outputting the correct voltage and amperage?
I also have a LG adapter for my phone listed as 5.1v 700ma and that will charge my BB fine and tested the same on my RPi.
Please help me sort this out!
p.s. I have this hub on order http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000SD ... 00_s00_i00 that will be here in a couple days and hopefully that will power the RPi ok.
