I went to test my system last night and the Pi wouldn't boot. I tried putting the MicroSD card into my PC and it wouldn't read it. Bought 2 new cards today. The Pi seems to be installing the FPP software fine now.

Question, Will my FM transmitter affect the Pi if it is too close to it?

Thanks,
Jay

There is always a chance but we have a lot of FPP users putting their Pi in the same CG-1500 as their transmitter.

I seriously doubt it. uSD cards, depending on where you get them, can be junk. Get a name brand card from a reputable seller...ie...office supply place. I personally recommend Sandisk but then again I'm a bit biased :-)

The one I was using came with the Pi wasn't Sandisk, its in the trash now. I bought 2 Sandisk today.

Thanks for the, replies.
