Re: USB to SD Adapter

Thanks for that Kite, I think I understand now.... Correct me if I am wrong.... Primary SD card would be the one on the RPi3 and this would be used to have the Linux / ES / RetroPie in it. Secondary SD card would be the one on the SAIO board and this could be used to run additional ROM's in RetroPie...

Re: USB to SD Adapter

My apologies for bringing up an old post, especially one I started, but..... I never got around to building my GameBoy with Ver. 0.6 of Kite’s SAIO board and the Raspberry PI3, but am back on to it now. I still don’t understand this USB to Micro SD adapter setup. By placing this adapter between the ...

Re: USB to SD Adapter

So it adds a secondary SD card slot to the device? Since the first one is taken up by the RetroPie SD card?

If you don't do this you just load ROM's to the RetroPie SD card, correct?

USB to SD Adapter

Looking through the Wiki for Kite's SAIO board in the Pi3 build section there is reference to adding a USB to SD adapter (picture here)

What is the purpose of doing this?

Re: [Pre-Order] Pre Stripped Raspberry 3 Model B

I forgot about this proposed supply chain opportunity. I was very interested in it, but it didn't smell right to me and ended up getting a desoldered Pi3 from elsewhere a few months. I did get an invoice about 5 or 6 weeks ago but again didn't need it anymore so didn't jump in on the order. Accordin...

Re: Black Case Graphics

Thanks for the feedback Psy128 and ICMF..... I too, was concerned about the acetone... was planning on trying it on another bad case I have first, but I guess I don't need to do that now. You both kind of give conflicting opinions on wet vs. dry so it might just leave me with living with the blue gr...
