After my first holiday trip with >80GB of video-backup, I am very happy with the device. But I also found one micro-SD card which would not be mounted automatically by USBmount. By looking at the output of "dmesg" I found that this card registered itself as "/dev/sde". I'm not sure why, but I had to manually mount it to /media/usb0 with the command:mount /dev/sde1 /media/usb0The backup-process was then started by button as usual.
Hi, congrats to your Pi Zero! :-)1) you don't have to edit anything. If you don't implement any LEDs or Buttons you just won't see anything and it will be hard to start the copy process, but you can do that also remotely. --> see 3)2) Of course you can add several HDDs. If you don't modify the fstab you would have to manually use the "mount"-command after plugging in each HDD to use it. But that could also be done via console or remote-console. --> see 3)3) Yes of course. Get yourself a ssh-shell app like "Juice SSH" or something similar. The you can log into your raspberry pi just as you would do with your PC. Now you can mount the HDD, because it is very likely not mounted by USBmount. And then you can backup the usb-stick by using the "rsync"-comma...see more »Hi, congrats to your Pi Zero! :-)1) you don't have to edit anything.

And then you can backup the usb-stick by using the "rsync"-command from the copycontent.sh script from step 10. But of course you would have to adjust the commands to suit your needs. And if you close the connection, then the sync-process might very likely be interrupted! Try to do one step at a time and do not try to do all at once! :-) Good Luck and post your result!
Hey, cool. I didn't know that! Looks very interesting. Maybe I should order one? Thanks for sharing
Hi Javi, I added a small schematic on how to connect the LEDs and buttons to step 3. My biggest concern with the Pi-Zero W is the power supply. The power it can deliver via the one USB-port is very limited. Some time ago I already had problems running an external keyboard! Of course you could, or better should use a powered hub to connect the external HDD. And then it would of course be efficient to use this hub also to power the pi. But powering the Pi from a powered hub, which itself is connected as a downstream-hub feels kind of wrong. Did anybody try this? Would be interested if it works and how you solved it!
Just google "crontab", "bashscript" and what to do with it! In short: The Cron-daemon can start scripts for you, at boot-time, or on special times you can define. With the command "crontab -e" you can edit this list.The first two are the scripts which really do something, the later two are a printout of the crontab, to show you how these scripts are called. If you create a new file, don't forget to set the executable-flag with "chmod +x yournewfile".
Thanks for the comments.Of course you could add a screen! There are several small screens with or without touch available. The disadvantage is: They need additional power to operate and you need to write additional code to display what you want. I skipped that. :-)

Well, that depends on the GPS in your car! I did this instructable for my old garmin handheld GPS, there it worked. If it still works with newer versions I can't confirm.And if you have a look at the date of the isntructable it was 2012. Five years are like an epoche in IT and unfortunately, most of the tools might be outdated and not available any more. Sorry for that! But you can get a start here and look for more up to date tutorial, or write one! :-)
Fantastic!!! Great Idea with the trap adapter! I wanted to do this since a long time, but didn't get far! Thanks for sharing!
Hi Scott, just edit the python-software and look where the "generate QR-code" is called and remove it. That should be it.

Hi Fred, I guess I have bad news for you. The StripLights-Component uses some free configurable blocks called UDB. Unfortunately they are not present in the PRoC, that is why you can't use the component with your device. I hope you still have a chance to change the chip to a PSoC-version. Best wishesAndreas

very good pictures and explanation!
Hi Vitvas, good question. Actually I don't know it any more. But because no external clock-source is used, I would guess it was 8MHz. You might have to try it on your own...

Every step-down is different, so I can not provide you specific advise, but there is an input-side this is for the 12V and an output of 5V on the other side. Then you have "+" and "-" and have to make sure they are connected the right way. Just refer to the datasheet of your step-down module.
You might use a DSLR camera, but that would be a completely different software then.
Hi Dean, this is a cool Cajon, didn't see that before! And I could not even find any pictures of it in the web. Maybe I have make a stop at my lokal music-store for a look... Good luck for your building!Andreas
Hi Dean, this is an interesting approach. Yes, most players tilt it because it is easier to play. But I have no idea what the second hole in the bottom does. Or if it is better to have only one hole in the bottom. The wood on the back is thin, like the front surface, so to make a hole into this seems logical to me. Also it is directly opposite of the playing surface. But make a try! As long as you don't use glue, you are free to disassemble it again! And please share your experience. I'm curious to know if it is better... :-)CheersAndreas
