Re: Connect SATA HDD to Raspberry Pi 2

I have something very similar. It has a sata on one side. The usb supplies no power to the hdd, it has to use the external power pack regardless of the type of hdd used, so max_usb_power would not be necessary (it might supply power to a laptop drive, I don't know. You might need max_usb_power=1 the...

You can find anything you want on the internet.

I might have found it but I'm not saying it will actually work, but for £3.50 it might be worth a shot.

Re: Raspberry PI 2B Battery

I think judging a product wholly on '1 star' reviews is a little pointless. Using that method you probably don't buy anything from anywhere, ever. 91% of people who bought the item gave it four or five stars, which, to me isn't a bad rating. When I read it 1400 people had reviewed it, 4% give it 1 s...

Re: Static IP

Hi Feverish,
I don't know what type of router you have but I always set my static IPs on my router, that way each PI is permanently set regardless of installs/re-install/fresh installs/software used. So I apologise if it's not what you really want, but it might be an easier/more convenient option.
