How do you start up a Raspberry Pi? I got a starter kit which includes everything needed to get going, but the starter kit didn't include a HDMI cable, so i got one of those. After several trips to the store before i settled on the right adapter. (i think). Then i downloaded SD card formatter and NOOBS, so that i could use my sd card.

But then it turns out later versions of windows can't detect sd cards at all, but my old as shit pc detects that my 16 gb card has a storage of 5 gb. But it can't be used.

Man, all in all, raspberry so far has been the most labor and hardware intense thing i have ever attempted. All the guides on youtube simply assume that everything is setup and properly arranged before you start using it.

But i cant even get it to start. Am i missing something here? Surely, it must be crucial that windows can detect SD-cards. But it is impossible. I have tried on several different computers.

Can't you just hook it up like a plc and get things going? Why does it have to be so complicated?

I don't know if you're kidding but... If you have trouble getting SD cards to work on Windows, it might be ten years too early for you to try out Linux.

Sounds like your SD card is incorrectly formatted, that's all. It's that complicated because you were too cheap to buy a prepared SD card from their store, I guess.

>Sounds like your SD card is incorrectly formatted
He could have also bought a shit SD card reader.

I have one that won't read cards over 2GB, and another that breaks at about 8GB. The former was just pre-SDHC, while the latter was a bargain bin piece of crap.
