My experience with them is in a harsher environment to be fair. Plugged in to a waterproof intercom unit on the side of a helmet, with the cable running to either a recharge / or bater pack battery or to the mic and earpiece inside the helmet. Designed to be removable, so the wire is exposed, .so wh...

Re: Adding a 5V Fan to a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and having control of it

I wouldn't particularly worry about wearing it out. Not wearing out as such, but damage the bloody thing/ bend a pin or damage it, or cause solder failure of the socket on the board. It does happen. I have the same sockets and plugs on my motorcycle intercom headsets. Over the years I have had to f...

Re: Adding a 5V Fan to a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and having control of it

Think PSU is 2.5 amp from memory Won't be using the inline switch to power it off until it has shut down properly. I'd say an inline switch is a very good idea. It means once you have shut down properly via sudo shutdown now or GUI button, then you can remove power form the board to swap ouT SD card...

Re: Adding a 5V Fan to a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and having control of it

It's a bad idea to plug the fan connectors directly to the RPI GPIO pins because the fan needs a burst of current when it starts running and it's also dangerous when it stops because it may send a harmful current to the ground pin Yes, it is a very bad idea to plug a fan (or other, high-current ind...

Re: is there a VMWare Image ready to go for Mac?

As long as it runs the same software, like dc3dd and pishrink it does not matter.

but if it is another total dead end, then that wont be anything new. been trying so many different things in the past three or four days. The image I just downloaded, the zip file failed to expand with an error.

Ah, OK I saw that you Browse' creat an image and select the Drive you wish to copy. If you have a Rasp Pi SD card in the USB adapter, it appears on the Windows machine as two drives, E: and F: the boot drive and the main partition. So as I saw it, it would only image one of the partitions.. Once the...

Re: Clone and “Error: Can't have a partition outside the disk!”

No linux laptop, but do have a Win7 core i3 Acer here. could look at finding a Live Linu CD to do this...

I do have Win32 Disk Imageer on it..but that I believe only copies/ creates an image of each partition


Can i put dc3dd on the mac?


I'll look at that, make life easier if I can do that.
