sudo dd if=generic-image.img of=/dev/whatever the sd card was bs=1M
Did i copy the image over incorrectly? or is there another reason why this could be happening?
When you copied the image to the SD card, did you mean an actual copy action, or did you burn the image to the SD card using win32diskimager?
If your initial attempt to burn the image via win32diskimager was as follows:
- Inserted uSD into uSD reader
- opened windisk32imager and tried to burn the img file to the uSD and was given an error message of not enough space
The issue might be that your reader might be problematic. Is it built-in? My built-in reader in my laptop gives me the same (false) error message. When I connect the reader to one of my front-panel USB ports, I get the same error message as laptop's. When I use a standalone reader connected to one of the main USB ports on my desktop, it works fine.
If you actually did burn the img to the SD card ("after I copy the image to the sd card"), which device were you "putting it back in its not mounting the sd card anymore. "? The Nook or the reader?
