Trouble getting ISO on to MicroSD card
#1
I downloaded the ubuntu image from the downloads page for the pine64 (2gb ram version), and when I go to extract the iso file from the .rar download onto the sd card, I keep getting a error message, which basically says "the file 'xubuntu-xenial etc etc etc' is too large for the destination file system." I have absolutely no idea as to why I'm getting this message - I've re-formatted the sd card multiple times as a FAT32 file system, and as far as I know, the largest file size supported by that system is 4GB. The ubuntu iso is roughly 1.8gb, hence my confusion Tongue .

I also haven't used any type of drive formatting program; I just right-clicked on the microSD card, hit format, and all of that jazz, so it could be that.
This may be some trivial fix that just slipped my mind, but any help is appreciated.

As a side note, when I try to open/mount the iso I get a message saying that it is corrupted and cannot be viewed, don't know if that has anything to do with this though.

I also have no idea if this is the right forum section, so I apologize if this is in the wrong section Smile

hey

You need to extract the image and then burn it to the card. There are scripts available to resize it later. If you are on Win PC then use the win32imager https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/ to burn the image to the card. Cheers

Thanks a bunch mate.
I ended up installing RemixOS, and everything went perfectly aside from the fact that my ethernet connection isn't recognized. I tried putting in the info myself - didn't work either.

Any thoughts?
