To my embarrassment and the dismay of the grandkids who cannot use their new RPi's I cannot unzip the NNOBS file! Never had problems in the past with unzipping files. Formatting the SD card (16GB), takes a few seconds. They are still interested. Go to RP.org site and download NOOBS_v1_3_2.zip (in properties size is given as 27KB-not sure whether this is an error since abbreviation for 1000 is k, and upper case K is reserved for the Kelvin temperature scale; I assume some typo error). I open the file and there is 'Length; Name; ....; Size: 1.13GB', must be the file and the other is a typo! Click-it; Schmick-it; there is no unzip!! I go back and re-read the instructions
1. Insert an SD card that is 4GB or greater in size into your computer
2. Format the SD card so that the Pi can read
i. Download the SD Association's Formatting Tool1 from
https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/format ... a_windows/
ii. Install and run the Formatting Tool on your machine
iii. Set "FORMAT SIZE ADJUSTMENT" option to "ON" in the "Options" menu
iv. Check that the SD card you inserted matches the one selected by the Tool
v. Click the “Format” button
This all done - no problem
3. Download the New Out Of Box Software (NOOBS) from:
4. Unzip the downloaded file
a. Windows: Right click on the file and choose “Extract all”
This latter instruction does not work on NOOBS_v1_3_2.zip. I can move it, copy it, send it , etc but I cannot EXTRACT it!!
At this time the kids interest has waned and been replaced by Gameboy-just the opposite of my intent!
So what am I doing wrong? That I cannot unzip the file?
