What is the easiest, most idiot friendly method of connecting my android phone and my pi using ConnectBot? I want to be able to send terminal commands to the Pi, that is all. I have the recommended distribution of Linux. Both my phone and the Pi are connected to the internet, although I would like t...

Re: Controlling two motors with the board

apologies, I should have made it clear that the LED here is in place of the motor as the software I was using had no symbol for motor! This almost looks like you interchanged the coil of the relay, and the switch of the relay! Sorry I have just noticed the enormous mistake in my diagram!!! The trans...

Re: Controlling two motors with the board

With the regards to the diode in reverse between the emitter and collector, first of all, do you mean that the diode will allow current to flow from the emitter to the collector? I am also slightly puzzled as to what that would do (I am very inexperienced with electronics, I am still doing GCSEs in ...

Controlling two motors with the board

I need to control two motors with my board in the following configuration: circuit.png Unfortunately I don't know the ratings of the motors I'm using. Due to my slightly random supply of electronics, the two transistors I'm using are different, but they are both NPN, these being their data sheets: h...

GPIO runtime warning

Hi, I am using the RPi.GPIO library to drive the GPIO pins on the board. I've written a program that uses the pins, the code controlling them being: import RPi.GPIO as IO IO.setmode(IO.BOARD) IO.setup(11, IO.OUT) IO.output(11, True) IO.output(11, False) That is essentially the content of my program ...

Re: Playing music using MOC

I have tried looking in the /media and there is a directory called 'externaldrive' but there's nothing in there.

I also tried changing the 'MusicDir' property in the config file to 'sda1' (the name of the USB drive that I obtained from entering 'sudo fdisk -l' ) but it doesn't exist according to MOC

Re: Playing music using MOC

Did you change the music directory in MOC's config file? You need to update it to the directory where the USB drive is mounted, I think the config file is located at ~/.moc/config That may just work, I will try it tomorrow. That is where the file is located, I've edited it several times. Do you kno...

Re: Playing music using MOC

When I inserted the stick it opened a window registering the fact that it had been recognised.
My user guide says that means it's been drive mounted automatically (I'm very new to this stuff, all I know is from the user guide :P )

Playing music using MOC

I previously started a thread with the problem of playing music off a cd player, but I gave up on that, so I put the music on a USB stick and then copied them to the SD card and I am now playing them!!! Unfortunately the music takes up rather a large amount of memory; about 0.6GB (not yet a problem,...

Playing a CD

Who would have thought it would be so difficult to play a simple CD!? I have a USB disk drive plugged in to a powered USB hub, with a CD in it. At my user guide's (Raspberry Pi User Guide. Eben Upton, Gareth Halfacree. Wiley) recommendation I have downloaded a music player called moc. The guide also...
