Re: Small 4k display?

Why would anyone need a 7 inch 4k monitor? At that size, the individual pixels will be so infinitesimally small and densely packed, it'd be impossible to distinguish them from a 1080 screen... I’ve never seen one that small, but my 65 inch is stunning in 4K. I don’t know, maybe you’re right, and th...

Small 4k display?

The new Pi 4 does 4k video, so is there or will there be any small 4k displays available?

Re: No driver for Pi DAC PRO for Pi 3

Wouldn’t the simplest solution be to buy another Pi? They’re only $35. I made a dedicated music player with a Pi Zero W, a DAC hat and headphone amp daughter board. It cost me less than a Pi 3B+

Re: Large partition sizes, Raspbian and Windows

FYI, I got this working on the Pi Zero W running PiCore player with a 512gb SD Micro card. The sound is VERY good, just what I’d hoped for with 10 year newer technology.

Re: What is the small partition visible to Windows?

Basically if your root partition fills your machine stops. FAT is also not as good for fragmentation handling as EXT format drives. If you need to write to the Pi SD card it’s a simple job to set up SAMBA on the Pi or add EXT drivers to a PC or Mac and use the main SD / disk space. Good idea about ...

Re: What is the small partition visible to Windows?

To resize a partition you need to make room for it. In other words, you must shrink adjacent partitions to create some free space, then expand the desired partition into that free space. You may also need to install additional file systems to deal with Windows partitions (sudo apt install exfat-fus...

Oh, I will take your advice and not use the /boot directory. I just need to resolve the issue of resizing the ext partition to NTFS for Windows use. I'll look it up.

Re: Large partition sizes, Raspbian and Windows

The OP should actually install Raspbian (with etcher) on the 512GB card and see. (Lets hope the 512GB card is not a fake) I've been doing tests on smaller cards (16 or 64gb) with some sample music to see what works before I use the 512gb card. I read reviews on Amazon of the various large SD cards ...

Re: What is the small partition visible to Windows?

Windows can't natively see most of the sdcard. The small bit that windows can see is used to boot raspbian. The rest of the sdcard is raspbian itself and uses a linux filesystem (ext4). Windows has a nasty habit of stomping over filesystems it doesn't recognise so for the time being just assume the...
