I have recenly been lent a Rasberry pi-top4 (complete edition) and when I run the Pi OS software it runs fine. I would like to use it with Volumio in my hifi set up but when I flash Volumio to an SD card (with Etcher) the Pi-top states it can’t ‘see’ the SD card
I’ve tried copying several times and it doesn’t work however each time I load the pi os software it works fine.
I am a complete novie to this so I’m assuming I am making a very simple mistake so any advice at all very greatfully recieved.
Many thanks - J
Check the md5sum of your downloaded Volumio image (note that you will need to unzip it and check the md5sum of the actual image and not the zipped file). It should be exactly the same as that shown on the download page.
If the sums match, then reflash the image onto a different sd card. Try again in your Pi Top case.
Edit: it has just occurred to me that you haven’t said if you have CHECKED if Volumio is actually working.
If you read the ‘quick start guide’ then you will see that Volumio is primarily designed to be run headless, that is without a display. The GUI is accessed through a browser on any device on your network.
If your RPi is using a wired connection, then try connecting by typing http://volumio.local into your browser.
If it is using wireless then you will first need to connect to the Volumio hotspot … see quickstart guide.
