Or better still, solder wires into TP1 and TP2.rurwin wrote:IDE uses separate power plugs. You certainly can't just plug the IDE ribbon cables into the Pi; there's no telling what you would connect to what.
You can find the 5V and 0V cables, put reasonable connectors on them and connect them to the Pi on the GPIO connector. But you need to connect the right wires to the right pins or it is "goodbye Pi".
I'm glad it worked.Cosmicsheep wrote:Ignore my last post. It would appear that I was supplied a 1A supply rather than the original 5A supply. This would explain my lack of power at boot.
Other than that, I think this is going to make a great little project
Just got to work out how to wire up the SC101's network port so I can connect it to the Pi
Glad to Seeing this post... just wanna ask, can we connect the black and red cable directly to mini usb, as my GPIO is already used?madman_xxx wrote: ↑Tue Jan 15, 2013 3:38 pmUse power (molex) male plug to connect to existing female socket one. Remove one black and yellow (+12V, dangerous for your Pi!)cable from female socket, should be two pins next to each other now. Black is GND, red is +5V. You can connect it to RPi directly via GPIO interface (see pinout here: http://elinux.org/RPi_Low-level_peripherals). A fuse on the red cable is recommended, but not required (Netgear hardware may already have one).
