    SD card for storage?

    Sorry if this has been asked here before, I did a search but couldn't find anything.

    I've recently set up a Pi with HifiBerry Digi + Pro, running PcP. All works fine and I am happy so far. My question is, rather than play local FLAC files from an external USB drive, is it possible to save them on the same micro SD as the OS and stiil be able to play them? If so, how would I copy them on to the card?

    I'm very new to this, but loving it so far!

    Thanks

    Sean

    This is the partition on pCP

    you can use samba for file transfer or use the partition as ntfs and move the files on your windows desktop

    NOTE

    I have not shown all the steps, expand the word more for fieldtips

    Excellent stuff, that worked perfectly with a test run of a few files on my 32GB card so now I will put PcP on a much bigger card and transfer everything.

    Thanks a lot Ronnie, much appreciated.
