Hi I just installed my Pi according to this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Fe1C1D5DhU but I got just one MacBook so as I put the SD card back, it shows this error The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer.Can you help me what to do please?

  • The easiest way to create an SD card on macOS for Raspberry Pi would be using a small utility called Pi Filler, it is an automated script written in AppleScript. You will need a readable SD card though. Download the Raspberry Pi image from raspberrypi.org/downloads, and you don't even need to unzip it with Pi Filler, just run the Pi Filler and follow the instruction, it usually take about 5 mins to create an SD Card. – hcheung Apr 27 '18 at 14:42

Do NOTHING. macOS can't (it could but won't) read Linux formatted disks.

I don't know what you did (youtube is a no go area) but if you installed by any of the recommended methods https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/ it should work if you put it in the Pi.

I also don't know WHY you would install Raspbian Jessie which is about to reach the end of its supported life.

  • macOS has no problem in reading the SD card created for Raspberry Pi, at least for the /boot directory. – hcheung Apr 27 '18 at 14:29
