Re: Any reason why a Pi 3 will not run from a 64 GB card?

Reasons why it may not work:

1. The SD card is fake
2. It is formatted as ExFAT, needs to be formatted as FAT32
3. Your Raspberry Pi may have an issue with reading SD cards
4. For best results use Etcher
5. Try a different operating system such as NOOBS
6. The Raspbian Download might be corrupted

dd works but you should use the progress bar to make sure it has not frozen on you.

Re: How to setup Minecraft 1.12.1 on Raspberry Pi 3

The commands vcgencmd get_mem arm and vcgencmd get_mem gpu show 960M and 64M as expected. I set all volume settings to off, but it's still random odds that it runs or crashes (much more crashes). If your using a mass storage device HDD/SSD I would recommend enabling ZRam because it made things a li...

I have just realised that the Broadcom chip gets very hot (too hot to touch).
Is it supposed to?
It depends. If it is processing a lot of information, it will get hot. Reflash the Raspbian and check to see if you have any problems.

This would be complicated as the Raspberry Pi camera would not have a wide enough field of view. Basically what your doing is like a panaroma.

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

Why not try etcher to flash the image to the card? Also why dont you just plug the SD card into another computer and copy it if your having problems?

Re: Auto turn on

The only possible thing that I can think of is that you have a Raspberry Pi zero w running a program that turns on a relay which supplies power to your main raspberry pi. This pretty much defeats the purpose though. Its like any other computer, when you shut it down, you require a physical button to...

Re: Help with first RPi purchase

If your buying a Raspberry Pi, I would go with the latest model:

1. Because when a new Pi comes you won't feel to outdated
2. Faster processor, more memory, etc.
3. Can run most applications better than other raspberry pi.
4. Easier to get started with. No dongles required.

I don't think this is possible. When you shut down your Raspberry Pi, you are basically stopping all processes.

RetroPie is your best bet at PS1 games. You won't have to install any emulators as it all comes in RetroPie.

Bizarre hardware things are usually due to a weedy power supply that isn't up to the job.
First, ask what type of power supply he has.

Its best to shutdown using

Code: Select all

shutdown now
or just using the shutdown button in the desktop. It can prevent many issues including the corruption of the filesystem.
