As the socket on the StarTech adapter has only one notch, I can see how one might get confused and insert a PCIe based card by mistake.
Only if you put the drive in upside-down (and force it).

Re: Raspberry PI 4 and USB Ext

The "solution" is to turn off or unplug the power source. When a power source is connected, Raspberry Pi computers will always be powered on to some degree. After a shutdown they are in a low power, almost but not quite off, standby state. This can vary from model to model, and even depend on how th...

Re: analog Sound Raspberry PI 4 is mono, not stereo

You should be using the speakers volume control to get loud volumes. Yup, computer speakers have built-in amplifiers. I normally configure the system volume at 50% and adjust the speaker volume to a comfortable level. Then I can fine tune the volume with the system volume, and if need be, I can use...

Re: Pi4: Setting up SSD already for future USB boot

The ultimate goal is to have the ssd formatted as a single ext4 partition containing everything that needs to be on mass storage, including boot stuff. As this is not supported yet, It never will be. Raspberry Pi computers must boot from a FAT partition (FAT16/FAT32). That's why Raspbian images hav...
