Some help with a few things

Sat May 31, 2014 11:55 pm

Very quick question,
can anyone provide me some links to help me with:

Software to copy the debian wheezy image to an SD card.
Software to be able to copy over any media/roms to the Pi.
Any software to type in lines of code to the Pi's terminal screen from my PC

Thank you

1. Assuming you're using Windows then it's Win32DiskImager that you need
2. No idea what that means
3. Assuming you're using Windows then it's PuTTY that you need

Using shared media (mentioned USB memory stick or network drive, etc.), or by downloading via server (installed either on RasPi or on another computer within internal network or public Internet).

I assume you mean Raspbian Wheezy? There is no point in running the old Debian image (even if it is still available) as it is not optimised for the Pi and runs quite a bit slower. Raspbian has the same software available as Debian.

mobaxterm is pretty good too, and will let you drag&drop files into your pi, if you have things set up right...
note: I may or may not know what I'm talking about...

I use MobaXTerm (http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/).

It lets you open terminal windows just like Putty ... but it also gives you basic file browser so you can drag-n-drop files from your PC. Plus if you launch some applications they open in separate windows.

You can also configure it to give you a GUI when you run startx. All from your Windows PC. Possible to do using other techniques but I've found this to be the easiest to setup.
