Working on it right now.....No, the USB does not appear to function here. Plugging in a mouse doesn't light the mouse up. 2 questions:Jookie wrote:B) does the USB on your RPi B+ work at all? If you plug in the USB mouse or keyboard and you don't see any lights on the devices being on (e.g. the sensor light on the bottom of the mouse doesn't shine, or Num Lock LED on keyboard after pressing the Num Lock key doesn't turn off and on), the USB doesn't work... This happens on some RPi B+ devices, and it's because of some things changed on that device. You need to take out the SD card, download this image: http://joo.kie.sk/cosmosex/download/rpi-ce-run-real.zip
...unzip it, write it to the SD card, put everything back together and see if that did help - if the USB devices have something lit up.
1.How on earth does one get the microSD card out of the Pi? Tweezers won't provide the necessary grip and needle nose pliers won't fit...
2. Is the use of the USB Image tool required or can i just unzip the file you provided onto the microSD card ?
thanks for all the help Jookie!
