Re: pi 4 32GB sd card doesn't work.

I have multiple SDHC cards of 32gb that include Kingston SanDisk and Samsung etc. My first comment is that all work with Stretch. I also have various reader/writer. With Buster only the Samsung work reliably. I have used every SD card test I could find all indicating ZERO issues of any kind on the S...

Re: Volume is dirty (External HDD - NTFS)

Sat Jul 20, 2019 12:29 am To mount NTFS volum[e]s with r/w access you need to install the ntfs-3g package. The standard driver is less flexible (but faster) and only allows read access to NTFS. This was an EXCELLENT bit of input. My "Thank You" is a bit late. It is very important that you know thes...

Thanks for the input on the USB-2 / 3 and the Pi.

It is interesting that, "Trial, Mistake, Error, and SUCCESS" seem to be the mainstay of the Pi world. It is good that there are Pi-Neighbors willing to steer a lost soul in the right direction!
