Hi All, I’m a new user, I decided to try out Volumio today and have run into some problems I am hoping someone with greater technical savvy than me can help me with.
Firstly - I am using a Raspberry Pi 3, I formatted a brand new, working micro SD card (SanDisk 32GB, it’s one I had handy) using SDFormatter on my mac. I then downloaded the correct image file for RPi and used the recommended Etcher to write the image to the card. This was verified by Etcher and the card was ejected correctly. I then placed the card into the RPi and plugged in the power.
I have nothing - the pi is fine, I tried the other card I have with Raspian on it and it boots no issues. The Volumio card will not boot - I have two red LED’s showing, no green light and there is no activity on the LAN port either - no lights whatsoever. The RPi does not show up on my router as a device, I have tried SSH etc. It seems to just sit there and not do anything. So I thought, maybe the image on the card is not quite happy, so I removed it to start from the beginning again except now my mac can’t see the card at all - it doesn’t mount, so I can’t do anything with it. I tried to format the card in a camera I have (hoping this might work) but the camera can’t see the card anymore either. So it seems the process has now killed a perfectly good card. Is there anything I can do to try and fix the card? Some way to reformat it so the mac can see and mount it again?
Many thanks for anyone who can help,
p.s. I am familiar with the headless concept, I’ve tried to log in via the volumio/local address but it doesn’t work either, I strongly suspect the pi is just not booting for whatever reason and my problem now is I can’t do anything with the sd card to try to fix things…I hope I have explained my predicament adequately!
