Accessory Bundle Availability

Postby Prince_of_Ravens » Wed Jun 04, 2014 8:13 pm

As a Kickstarter Backer I had received my Parallella boards a few weeks ago. The boards look amazing. Unfortunately that is all I can do with them, look. I cannot use the parallella and would like to be able to aquire the accessory bundle so that I can. It seems to me that enough accessory bundles should have been set aside so that the Kickstarter Backers could actually use the boards that they had purchased. Does anyone know if there is anyway I can get a hold of one of these accessory bundles? The store has been and still is sold out of them.

I am sorry to appear ignorant here, but I ordered an accessory bundle at the end of May. I have received the kit and it appears to have everything I need but I thought I was to get an SD card with the image on it. I do have a card in a little plastic case that has Parallella image written on it, but what kind of card is this? It certainly does not fit in the mini SD card on the board I have.

That is an microSDCard to SDCard Adaptor, you have to take the microSDCard out of it, then it'll fit in the Parallella. ;)

Two more things about the micro SD, if you haven't used them before...

* it goes in with the labelled side up (closest to the underside of the board)
* to remove it from the board, push it in---it's spring-loaded. You might get away with pulling it out a few times, but you'll probably break something that way.

Thanks for the quick responses. Duh. I feel really dumb now. Found the card, got it imaged and up and running tonight. Yee-Haw.
