Glad to help — I hate it when a useful program fails …. Enjoy your travels and thank you again for taking the time to respond.
My version of OS X is Since you see the same problem with 1. This guide might give you a good start: Just a heads up to say that the link you gave me was very useful and I made an image using the command on there. Some users seem to have problems with 1.
At least you were able to flash an SD card …. Make your SD-card bootable and copy the image file. Thanks for this App. Great idea. I have trying to create the image to my micro sd card but it does not seem like it is progressing at all. I am going to let it roll for a few hours to see if perhaps it was doing something and I was just being impatient. Forgive my ignorance, I have a g micro sd card. From what I understand, Fat32 only supports up to 32G card. You have to expand the card after you get it installed. This however is not a FAT32 limitation. According to a post at superuser.
Most filesystems are limited in their size. You need to pick a filesystem that is capable of using the entire size of the SD card. Which one you chose is also dependent on the environment you will be using it in. Some common choices for high capacity filesystems include:. Downloaded Raspbian, used your program to create the image on the micro sd card.
I got it home and it does want to boot at all. I have a 16G micro SD card that works. I had bought a larger G to put ROMs on. Tempted to just buy a thumb drive and put the rooms on there and call it a day. You must have a lot of ROMS! Can I ask again for the exact make and model of gig micro SD card you bought? Good article with good info and a Mac App at the bottom of the page … http: And a way too long article for Mac users as well, which even involves compiling yourself: Hi, thanks for writing this app, it is very useful: Thanks Neil for leaving a positive feedback!
I like your suggestion and will add it in the next version! Bei der Migration ist dieses Tool hilfreich: Thanks William! Looks like a great program but it will not work for me. I get stuck at the password. You could try v1. Any idea how this may have happend? Thank you very much! Also thank you for taking the effort to leave a nice feedback! Trust me I wasted a lot of time. Maybe John could add a warning to tell you the SD card is locked. Good idea — let me see if I can implement that Read Only state , I actually ran into that problem the other day as well — which initially confused me as well.
Thanks Adam! Hans, I could create an introduction type video for Apple Pi baker. Something that would display the features and capabilities of apple pi baker.

Its ok if you say no, my feelings wont be hurt. Just an idea. If its a yes I can just give you the youtube link and full acces to display it on a website. Nice to see such enthusiasm, I love it …. As for the icon: I very much appreciate your efforts though — the icon looks really good!
As for the instruction video: Please be my guest to make one! I hope to find time in the near future to revamp ApplePi-Baker and add more functionality. Im not dissappointed about the icon. Im to exited to make the video! Thanks for giving me a chance!

This is the best rasoberry pi program ever! Second, when are you planning on getting that update out. Im in no rush, and i dont want to rush you,but I want to make the video up-to-date with the new icon made by the other user. And the new features that might be in the update. So I dont have to make it two times in a short time. If its possible could you give me the new icon. Just somthing to consider. I want to make the best video possible. One thing though: So, have you emailed that file already, or are still planing to get that out. Sending you an email now!
Also maybe as part of the new update you could add this icns file I made. This file will look better with the new Yosemite look. Again, just an idea. If you have errors downloading just reply to this. I select the SD card, pick the image… and nothing. What might I be doing wrong mate? No problem, happens to the best of us! Check the side of the SD card. See below:. And see also the images on Wikipedia here. This will result in an IMG file which at a later time can be used to restore the image to an SD card of the same size or bigger.
Is that what you were looking for? This is something which catches a lot of people out. Andrew is right … data is scattered all over the card, no guarantee that things are nicely lined up …. No, unfortunately, ApplePi-Baker is not catching that. This becomes specially tricky when using compressed IMG files. With version 1. Again, lack of Ext support makes this very tricky and it will probably go a little beyond my expertise. Maybe when creating a compressed IMG backup of an SD card, you could store its uncompressed size as an extended attribute on the file? That was my interpretation any way more details.
The first one being free, the second one being commercial but maybe more mature. Not to mention the different? But … it could be an interesting start. I just ran in to the issue of a non-writeable card, it was not the lock switch but another weird issue. After reading this post on the forum i did a manual format to check if there was a write problem.
It worked ok and after that, pi-baker worked great. You could just have it as a separate process or a pre-processing check? Anyway, just my two cents. Awesome program btw.. Thank you for all your hard work. I will however try to make a new version of Pi-Baker that does a read-only check — I might have found a way to do that, just need the time to implement it. Could you please set the password visibility to be off by default!
Having clear text password fields is a big no-no. Any instance where my password can be visible fills me with instant district for the software. Thanks for everything else; works great and is nice and quick. For those that have a specific preference and would not want to toggle the checkbox each time they work with it.

I will use your Amazon link on my next order. Thank you so much for leaving a nice comment! But … donations are optional and I very much appreciate the shopping gesture! Thanks you very much …! You will see a. I tried to use version 1. See also this comment. Sorry for the inconvenience and I hope it resolves your issue.
Partitioning actually needs this as well. But progress should definitely be noticeable after a second or Thanks Bill. I always appreciate it when users take the time to leave a nice feedback! Great tool! Thanks for sharing it! Thanks Ernie for the compliment and the tip! I have been using this for quite some time now and I never came across any problems until I installed El Capitan.
Anybody else having this issue? This way I can see if there is something that has changed. I have yet to setup a virtual machine to test El Capitan — unless you can tell me that you have had zero problems with El Capitan. I only noticed one problem so far with El Capitan Beta 4 and that is plug-in failure with uploading photos.
Would you mind giving v1. It would be greatly appreciated. Nice work! And I think it should be called SIC. I have installed El Capitan, but have to admit that I have ran into a lot of unexpected problems even running it properly. Last night I installed the latest beta forgot whether it was beta 3 or 4. I will give it a try today! As an example: Not even with sudo.
This appears to be an issue seen all over the web. Well, finally managed to get a new release available which runs under El Capitan So I now included a more rugged code, with exceptions for This should be fixed now …. Other El Capitan users could maybe give 1. It played audio […].
Hi, thanks for the great tool. I rebooted my Mac and also deleted and re-installed several times. I should give you some messages. Maybe there is a hint there to what might have gone wrong. If all goes well, it should output the same as. Looks like sudo works as it should — which is good! It just disappears and the rolling colorful Apple ball comes up. I could pase the Apple crash report if that helps. For some reason it gets in a loop — I will look at the code and see what the issue might be.
For Windows you can use WinDiskImager. Tried version 1. Oh … I do not have the means to test with Snow Leopard. The arrival of El Capitan caused quite a few extra headaches, and Snow Leopard is a little old, so I never even considered sorry! I better make sure to not remove the old version from the downloads. Is that what you mean? Good catch Andrew! Please feel free to provide feedback …. What message do you get when it crashes?
Do you have any AntiVirus software or something like that installed? I also took the opportunity to introduce the new icon, created by Kray Mitchell. Any speed improvements would not be related to any changes in 1. Hi Calum and Roland, could you give v1. The program will automatically detect the SD card, unmount it and load an image file of your […].
I was gifted a Pi kit that already had the OS on it. I want to add to the SD card by putting RetroPie on as well. However, after reading the instructions here, the options seem to wipe the card then put the image on, which would remove the OS. Is there a way I can add to it but not replace it? Most systems can do a so called dual-boot, but I have to admit that I have never tried that on a Raspberry Pi. As an alternative you could try to install everything for Retro-Pi on an existing system — but that will take a lot of work, and again I have to admit that I have never done or considered doing that.
Would you recommend any peripherals? Well, adding an extra SD slot is not easy. I have not yet done this myself, and people claim it makes the Pi run faster than running of an SD card. Some links: The app hangs after input the sudo password. I have the logs in case the developer wants to see it. Thanks Victor! Unfortunately it runs fine under my El Capitan, so that might become a challenge.
It remains in the dock, but nothing else happens and my only option is to Force Quit. I will look at it today to see if I can find what might the problem. Yeah — v1. Would that be fine to use? Or are the 1. Yes 1. After 1. I will do some more testing under Yosemite though — would be nice if the compression trick would work as well of course. OK great — thanks for your hard work on this — makes it possible to get my Pi setup like I want: Cool — keep an eye on this page, as I will try to solve the issues with the newer version.
For some reason it works fine here, and I cannot reproduce the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience …. With the older version it works perfectly! Really wished I could have still used the original 1. I have made a small modification to this test version of v1. Feel free to download it from this link. Did anyone with the password problem, test this test version yet? Back to the drawing board I guess … crap. Would you mind keeping an eye on these comments, for when I post a new version? I will try to get one available today or at the least tomorrow.
I just emailed you a new version v1. Please let me know if this one works properly.

I think I found a way to reproduce the problem. Awesome — thanks Slash, I very much appreciate that. Trying to use 1. Enter my admin password for sudo and just get an endless spinning ball until I force quit. For those interested, here is a new test version … I just gave it an arbitrary beta name: Tested on MacOS X Additionally, I fixed the issue with being able to make a backup of a read-only drive — in the 1.
Please test and send feedback if you can … it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to Slash for the very quick support in testing this version. ApplePi-Baker does not pay attention to partition at all. OSX First card was Class-2 device. Tried it with Class card and Abort button appeared and it started writing the data. This used to happen for example when the card was Read-Only, but in 1. Thanks for posting your findings … Could the class-2 card be corrupt? When I enter that at says the either the password is incorrect not the case or I do not have sudo rights also incorrect. Then I have to click on the provided sudo Window and it accepted my password….
Interesting find … I have not been able to reproduce the problem. Create a partition for each OS and find some kind of bootmanager to choose fro which OS to boot. I try to restore an image on my SD card, but when I want to select the image file, I have the rainbow wheel and I am forced to force quit the Apple Pi-Baker. I finally get through it… I put all files on my Desktop in a subfolder and bye bye the rainbow wheel….
Thank you very much for bringing it to my attention! Which version are you using at this moment? If the spinning beachball appears, it means that your Mac is busy doing something like in this case: I am using the latest, 1. Is that possible? Do you have any applications running that might access the SD card? For example Anti Virus or a clean-up application to remove MacOS X hidden files from network shares and external drives? Theoretically, you can size down the 16Gb image holding only 2Gb of actual data to 8Gb.
It takes a lot of trickery, for example found here. Oh nice, wish I had a iMac 5K …. Known issue or am I going mad? Nothing big here, just increased the delay for verifying the Sudo password. Thanks BootZ for testing! Having updated to El Capitan I now find that v1.
I get a User path does not exist error message. Thanks Bromerzz! I hope to release 1. But to no avail… so I skipped to the non-sudo version. Using an USB-card reader. If you decide to give it a try, please report if the Sudo password issue got resolved, as I have no way to reproduce the actual problem. The password problem was the biggest issue! Thanks again, that was indeed very helpful. It should address the backup issue which was a booboo on my end — sorry. Please let me know if this one works correctly. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
What version did you try that failed? Same issue here… SD cards do not appear in the app. I am also having this issue on 1. Both drives I put in show up on my Mac I am also have the issue with v1. MBP with Yosemite Here is the system info for the reader:. Total Size: For what its worth 1. Great to hear that and thank for the feedback! I noticed that other report issues except for one with older OS X versions, so maybe there is an issue to be found there. Back to some virtual machines and test … so far Yosemite and El Capitan it works great here as well ….
A bug in the SD card detection has been resolved in this version. Additional bonus: It allows you to setup your SD card without using the […]. Thank you for an excellent application. What function did you use? I used the restore function and it reported the img file was successfully restored to the sd card but in reality it was empty. Ended up using a Windows machine ugh!
Do you have any pointers so I can reproduce this? Since a few days Pi Baker 1. El Capitan changed a few things when detecting devices, in which 1. Yes, in both cases. I did upgrade to el capitan, but not to 1. Now I have and all is working again. Thanks for taking the time to report this and thanks for taking the time to write a thank-you note. For El Capitan One of them being how the name the SD card. Your Mac needs a little time to identify the SD card. Hope this helps …. Yeah … about that v2 … I have been toying with it for a bit now. The issue that I am having is that when I deploy the image to a new card, my Pi says that the image is corrupt.
Has anyone seen this before; and how do I fix it?!?!? The cards that I am using are identical. As mentioned above, the cards and kits that were ordered are all of the same make and size. I have also tried fully formatting a card to assure that overwriting is not part of the issue. I just wanted to thank you for making this app — AppliPi Baker is a really need application — I love how well it works.
Thank you for the kind words and compliments! Comments like these make it so worthwhile working on apps like ApplePi-Baker! You could also use Apple Pi Baker.

Update on this one. I originally was backing up to a brand new seagate 2tb disk over usb. Backing up to my desktop as I type. The difference is that the new seagate disk is formatted as NTFS. Thanks again for creating this app! Sorry for the late response Chris! Hello and congratulations for the app , is great. But after trying few times to clone my rpi micro sd card, it does not work with me, let me explain it:.
I have a 16Gb card with my RPI system and some programs instaled on it. All that is just a few Mb of space on my card, so is a lot of space free in it. I bought yesterday a micro sd card of the same sice 16Gb and same brand , so I try to clone my original RPI system and the programs in to this new one. So I close down the computer , for not extract the card manualy. Can you help me with this. Your case illustrates this nicely unfortunately. There are numerous posts and article on how to reduce the partition size of your Raspberry Pi SD card.
Here is an example script, usually you have to first shrink the filesystem and after that shrink the partition. Quite often, you cannot resize a mounted running partition and a Linux machine this can be a virtual machine, you could use for example GPartEd to resize, more info here is needed to do this. Thank you for your awenser. I will try to reduce my original card to , lets say, 14 Gb and then I will try again.
Well , Hans, the solution I did is: You are great!!!!! The size of each IMG is: That does not look good! The sizes should remain identical note: That cannot be right! It would make things even easier if the app would allow the selection of ISO files. Does that really work with any ISO? From this Arch Linux page: This is the command for placing the ISO on the flash drive. IMG after. ISO to the file name in Finder. Do you use it for other purposes besides Raspberry Pi as well? Basically a. I remember many years ago, Linux projects e. So for Ramsey to want to use it for.
But then again, ApplePi-Baker is usable for other purposes as well …. They boot to a fully usable version of Linux. It is just that since they were designed for read-only media, all files are written to RAM disk and lost after shutdown. I could do all of it manually via Terminal, but it is really nice to have a utility that immediately recognizes the available USB device and only requires selecting the source file.
There are so many variables that enter into the correct block size, that the numbers are just rules of thumb and are actually different for about every different computer setup. Each operating system has different caching schemes which affect the optimum amount of data to read. Here is the study of different block sizes and scripts that can be run to determine the optimum one for your system: For testing purposes, any Linux ISO should work.
HP Printers - USB Printer Setup (Mac)
I happened to be working with Linux Mint the last couple of days. The default is for a BIOS computer. I got a chance to do this several times because of a problem I was having. I could boot the USB flash drive just fine. And then run the installer to place Linux on a HDD. But then the HDD would not boot. Fixing that solved the problem.
I like it! Oh and as for block sizes: The steps you took should indeed work. The tmp. I can install the current Raspbian IMG file using your app perfectly. Copying the files per the instructions on raspberrypi. What am I missing? Hope this help. I tried using both the raspberrypi. I tried extracting the files from the zip, then copying and I tried extracting the files directly to the root of the sdcard.
The odd thing is raspbian works the first time, every time. No big deal. Thanks for your app! I love that I can install Raspbian without having to look up those obscure command line paths. Haha, no I do not consider you a pain in the ass haha … these are very legit questions in my opinion. The obscure command-line is exactly why I wrote this app for myself … haha … cool!
Glad you like the app …. Any suggestions on how it could be made less confusing? This Western Digital article kind-a confirms this even for El Capitan link. I actually had to double check that based on the info you provided. So no harm in double checking …. Thanks for the compliment and the humor! Which version are you using, v1. Did you do a restore before? When I click cancel when asked to select a file, it just goes back to the main screen.
Can you tell me the exact steps to reproduce it? You could try partitioning and formatting with Disk Utility of your Mac , just use something like a single partition, and see the card gets recognized properly. I unfortunately do not have 64 Gb SD cards available to test, but I would not expect problems. Keep us posted! What kind of card reader to you use on you desktop? And while I was typing this, the restore completed! Now to see if it actually works. Haha that cartoon is hilarious! What kind of Mac are you using? What kind of SD card are you using? Does your Mac recognize the SD card?
Does the SD card have anything on it yet at least an empty partition so you can test if the card works properly? I am currently using a macbook pro, my mac does recognize my micro hc 32gb card. I have tried using a micro sd adapter with my built in slot and a usb adapter and I have tried using an empty card and it still will not show up on the list on the program. If it effects anything I am using version 1. If you use 1. Thanks for this tool. I notice on El Capitan This becomes a major problem when the max processes limit is reached and no more processes can be forked.
A restart of the computer is the only good way to clean up. I like the tool a lot but I have a lot of trouble with this behavior and thought you should know. Thanks Chad for notifying me about that potential issue. Are you sure they stick around as zombies? The locking out of other apps is not something I have experienced, could you clarify this so I can mimic what is happening? Any input to reproduce this is most welcome. I used had to look it up, so I figured; post it here, someone might find it helpful. However, when I close ApplePi-Baker, after using it, they all disappear instantly.
I will look into this to see if I can force these processes to be killed right away. I managed to find the culprit as far as zombie processes goes. It seems that the process object needs explicit termination each time after I call that exact same object instance, otherwise it keeps creating new processes. Maybe that is what you mean with locking? Such a speedy and thorough response!!
Thanks for that. Once that limit is reached, you cannot launch any more processes. Also, using compression and decompression increases the time and thus increases the chance of hitting the upper limit. But … while doing so I bumped into a quicker start for restoring an image, so once I get stability back to what I like, I most certainly will release a new version. A peak moments it will have 5 processes running, while writing, but they will not increase, and once restore is completed they will all disappear again. Your method is better for monitoring. A little strange that the activity monitor is not displaying the zombies.
Considering the amount of downloads, I wish I would have thrown it in the App store. With El Capitan some of the commandline statements have changed a little bit. Since you want to keep it free, why not put it on github? Then others can contribute and make pull requests to enhance your nice tool…. If you or others would like to, you can test 1. Any feedback would be appreciated. I was able to use your 1. Thanks for addressing the issue and soliciting feedback on the fix! Used 1.
Thank you for posting a confirmation! The slight speed increase is what I observed as well, it has to do with how I changed the unmounting of the disk. Hi Hans, thanks for making this app available. I had absolutely no success with the Win32 Disk Keeper, and when I heard about your app I was ecstatic. Works great. My boot disk is a SanDisk 32 GB. That works, no errors. Then I eject my SD card, place a new one same model, same capacity in the reader and do the restore. That also works, no error.
After it has completed I eject that card and place it in my RPi. Power up the RPi and it fails half way through bootup with the following error:.
I have tried different blank, identical SD cards. But if I put my original SD card in, it boots fine. I have heard rumors about this being a potential bug in the boot script — see this old Raspberry Pi Forum post. They mention too boot the Pi while holding down the Shift key, so it goes into recovery mode. And then edit the config file, something like copied from that post! Just keep in mind that I have not tested this.
I did find another post related to that message in the Raspberry Pi forums as wel. Unfortunately, I have not been able to replicate the error. As far as I know, it has to do with your filesystem being corrupted somehow. So in these cases the fix was to revert cmdline.
I put that one in the RPi and it booted perfectly. So I guess we can write this problem off and forget about it. Definitely a motivator to keep going! Have a fresh set jessi and then shut down correctly. Card into the mac and ApplePi made a backup. After a few trials and tests with dm Raspi I wanted the backup import back on the map. Reports ApplePi always the backup would be larger than the map! Importing goes but Nevertheless. This typically happens when the size of the image is a little bit larger than and the size of your target SD.
Ja Die Karte habe ich mit Frischem Jessi bespielt, dann raspi soweit eingerichtet und als das fertig war auf dem Mac ein Backup von dieser Karte gemacht. There are usually 2 reasons why the restore of a backup would fail by the way: Note that if ApplePi-Baker reports the image to be bigger than the SD card, then this very likely is the case! Can you try to restore to a bigger card just for testing purposes? Might be useful for diagnostic purposes, if nothing else! Thank you for the suggestion! I used to do that with one of the first versions, only to find out that it would clutter the interface most of the time, these are large numbers.
I have a problem, every time I flash a img using the software at the end of sd FAT16 is impossible to use the entire size Raspberry Pi. It was me who was making a mistake of basic knowledge of linux. The program works excellent. Thanks Armando! The huge file sizes are playing havoc on my backup drives. Also would it be possible to have some verification? In the meanwhile, I read a post on StackExchange that might be helpful. They mention 2 options: Ehm, compression and decompression is already build in, and supports several formats incl.
Zip, Rar, 7zip, tgz etc. I even added the option to extract select an IMG from an archive when there are multiple IMGs included in the archive. But … so far no luck. As for the mounting; I forgot I installed Paragon ExtFS on my Mac, with the intend to get access to the files and see if I could get a smaller backup this way no dice though. Sorry about that — my bad! The app sees my SD card. I select it and then select the. I click Restore Backup and nothing seems to happen.
Does it not work with a USB sd reader? The spinning beachball, typically occurs when APB is trying to unmount the SD card in the beginning of the writing proces. Sometimes this goes super fast, but on rare occasions this takes a bit longer or almost forever. You could try the USB card reader on your Mac mini and see if you experience similar problems there.

Yields a Fat32 partition named Raspberry on a I found some fixes but they seem too complicated for me with two weeks experience on the Rpi. Does anyone here know of a simple fix, other than buying a bunch of 32GB cards and trying them?
One or two user reported similar issues. Since I do not have a 32Gb SD card laying around, I will have to order a few to do some testing myself and see what is going on.
ApplePi-Baker – Interface
Oh well, I can probably find a use for them. I think the issue is more with cards of slightly differing amounts of free space than the size of the card: The same problem may occur with cards sold as 8gb. The main problem as I understand it from web searches is that DD fails when trying to back up a slightly larger card to a slightly smaller card as above. I have two Rpi3s and I am trying to both make a backup of my work and clone one card to the other. I had a onetime success in cloning between those two cards. But then I worked on one card, backed it up using ApplePi-Baker and tried to restore the backup to the other card.
ApplePi-Baker pretends to complete a 3gb backup in a minute or two. My camera reported that it was formatting a 1gb card but at the end it said it had formatted OSX reports it as
