How to Embed Linux on SD Cards

There are lots of mainstream versions available for the Linux operating system that are available free of cost. The Linux operating system helps you to access many free applications and lots of information that can be viewed from the web and from online platforms like discussion forums. These web pages are specifically designed to help the user by making him more comfortable with the interface and applications which he may otherwise face problems with.

Linux can be installed into a number of computers and can be put on a number of external devices. If you possess an SD card, a version of Linux can be installed onto it and it can be run from there; or it can also be installed into the computer.

Before you go ahead, it is important to learn what is understood by SD or Secure Digital cards. An SD is a non-volatile memory card that has been developed for use in portable devices like digital cameras, handheld computers, digital camcorders, PDAs, netbook computers, mobile phones, media players, video game consoles and GPS receivers. Though they can usually accommodate up to 4 GB of data, standard SD cards have an official maximum capacity of 2 GB. These SD cards have proved to be very popular among the paying public, who have started switching from older devices to those containing these cards. All the SD cards come in similar shapes, which often cause confusion among people. Although they are based on the older MMC (MultiMediaCard) format, there are a number of differences between the two. Firstly, the SD card is asymmetrically shaped in order to not be inserted upside down, whereas the MMC would go in almost all the way but not make contact if it is inverted. Physically, most SD cards are thicker than the MMCs and most of them do not fit into the thinner MMC slots.

Instructions to embed Linux on SD cards

Step 1: First of all, you can download UNetbootin from the link http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/. It is the only application that allows a user to choose from more than 40 Linux distributions and then install them to an external device.

Step 2: Then you need to launch UNetbootin and insert your SD Card into the system. Next to the ‘Distributions’ option, there’s a drop down menu that you have to click on and then choose the version that you want on your card. Select your SD card after clicking on ‘Type’.

Step 3: Click on OK and the distribution that you had chosen would be downloaded and installed on your SD card. It should be noted that there are many distributions which may take more than an hour to download if you have a slow Internet connection; and many of these distributions take up to 700 MB of space.

Therefore, it can be seen that it is usually not a difficult procedure to embed Linux on SD cards if you follow the above instructions properly.

How to Retrieve Pictures from a Corrupt Memory Card

Losing data from an external storage device such as a memory card or an SD card is quite a common problem that is faced by people all over the world. It can happen due to a number of reasons such as entry of malware into the card that corrupts files, virus attack or simply because the memory card has been overused for a long time.

The bad thing about memory card corruption is that you may lose all data on it if it happens. The good thing about it is that there are a number of software programs available online that can help you recover all the data from your corrupt memory card.

Here is a step-by-step easy guide showing you how to retrieve any lost data from your corrupt memory card:

  1. Download and install data-recovery software on your computer

There are plenty of software programs available online that allow recovery of lost data from memory cards. Download.com is a useful website to search for data-recover software. Run a search with “data recovery” as your keywords to find a list of appropriate software programs available for free download or at least permission to use for a trial period before buying it. Once you download one of these programs, install it by following the instructions as they appear on your monitor screen.

  1. Connect memory card for your computer to read it

Allow your computer to read your memory card after you insert it into the slot on your CPU. If it is not detected at all then there must be some issues with the hardware of the card. This cannot be solved with the help of the recovery software. Otherwise, your computer should e able to read it as soon as the memory card is connected.

  1. Allow the data-recovery software to detect the memory card

Once your computer has read the card, open the data-recovery program and allow it to search for any connected external storage devices. It should be able to read your memory card instantly.

  1. Recover data and save it on a different location

Give a command for the program to run a scan on the memory card and recover all the lost and corrupt files. Once they are detected you must remove them from the memory card to avoid further loss, or at least save copies of them on your hard drive.

  1. Format the memory card

Once the lost data has been recovered and stored away safely in some other location, you must run a scan on your memory card and format it to ensure there are no corrupt files, malware, virus or other harmful items on it. Formatting will result in wiping the memory card clean of any files that were previously stores.

Once it has been formatted it should be available for use by you to store things once again.

The Ins And Outs Of Digital Cameras

Technology has undergone incredible advancements over the past few years, and digital cameras are no exception. Gone are the days where the photographer stood under a black sheet to take a photograph that took days to develop. These days, digital cameras make it easy for you to take and share photos.

What is a digital camera?

A digital camera is a device that allows you to capture pictures in terms of bytes and bits. This is the language that computers understand, and therefore these pictures can be uploaded on your computers. The picture is made up of tiny dots called pixels, each having a certain color to them. Like a normal camera, a digital camera still has a lens in order to focus and capture the images. This electronic information can then be broken down into digital data by a computer.

What is the resolution?

The resolution of a camera refers to the amount of detail that a camera can capture. This is measured in units called pixels. More the pixels of a camera and finer the picture quality will be. Camera’s 256×256 resolution totals 65000 pixels and this is what you will find with the cheapest cameras. Its 1216×912 resolution is a megapixel, which is great if you want to print pictures. The best digital camera will have a resolution of 4064×2704, which is a staggering 11.1 megapixels. With this you can print pictures that are13.5×9 inch, without losing the quality.

How do you take a picture?

Taking a photo with a digital camera is much the same as with a normal camera. Aim the camera at whatever you want to take a picture of, and use the optical zoom feature to go further away or get closer. When you are ready just press the shutter release button. The camera will focus and takes note of the amount of light available. It will then make the necessary changes to the exposure and the shutter will close. A processor then turns this data into pixels. With most digital cameras you will be able to view the picture you have taken on an LCD screen.

How many pictures can you take?

Each camera has a built in memory that will allow you to take a certain amount of pictures. You can expand this memory by using an SD card. The size of these cards range from a few hundred megabytes to a few gigabytes. All pictures you take will then are stored on there. You will be able to connect your camera to your computer using a data cable, or you can simply insert the SD card into the slot on your laptop. In this way you can transfer your photos and store them, email them or use them as wallpaper.

Digital cameras are indeed a blessing if you are used to taking loads of pictures. It will ensure that you get a great picture any time and will store as many as you want. It allows you to print pictures and send them to people all over the world. It is truly an all-in-one piece of technology.
