Ok I am completely IT illiterate. I have managed to set up and install my Raspberry PI and that works fine.
The problem starts when I try to install Octoprint as my husband wants to use this with his 3D printer.
From what I understand I have to download octoprint on my laptop then extract the IMG from the zipped file. Fine I can do this.
But when I remove the SD card (its a 16gb card) from the Raspberry PI and put it in my laptop and try to add the file it tells me I dont have space.
Now I know that the PI runs on linux and windows doesnt see this, but PI Raspi-config tells me that it cant expand as NOOBS already expands to use the whole card.
So Ive tried using Etcher to Flash the IMG to the SD card and then put the SD card back in the Rapsberry PI. It loads to a point then asks me for Octopi log in name and password.
Im now starting from scratch and re-installing the PI system but I know its already reduced my 16GB down to 1.8GB and Im at a complete loss as to how to change this or make it useable!
How do I expand the disc size so it is recognised on windows and will allow me to add the IMG file I need to add to install octoprint? Or is there something really basic I am missing that I should be doing instead?
Just to note....If you tell me to manual expand my SD card you need to give me exact details on how to do this (including exactly what I need to type in to the command box on PI), I have no idea what partitions are, or main partitions starting points or anything, you need to explain it as if you are talking to someone who does not understand command functions (because I really dont!)
