First, we need to know the path to the storage device and the filesystem it uses. Both can be obtained using the following command: sudo blkid This will give output similar to the following. Here, you can see the two partitions on the SD card (mmcblk0p1 and mmcblk0p2) as well as a USB memory stick (/dev/ sda1). Ensuring that you assign a label to the partition while formatting it will help to make identification easier: /dev/mmcblk0p1: SEC_TYPE="msdos" LABEL="boot" UUID="787C-2FD4" TYPE="vfat" /dev/mmcblk0p2: UUID="3d81d9e2-7d1b-4015-8c2c-29ec0875f762" TYPE="ext4" /dev/sda1: SEC_TYPE="msdos" LABEL="DANNIXON" UUID="321A-15D0" TYPE="vfat" Note the path to the device at the very start of the line and the partition type given by TYPE.
You can either use the Pi powered from a USB or any other media player as the audio source. It is best to have the volume control set to its lowest setting and gradually increase it. Next, we want to power the Pi from the battery using the DC-DC converter. There are two main ways of doing this: either by applying power to the GPIO header or by back-powering the Pi using a powered USB hub. In this case, I will be powering via the GPIO header, which will likely be sufficient for what we are doing here.
The next step is to reconnect all the wiring that is currently disconnected. While doing so, it is a good idea to trim any wires that are excessively long so that each wire is just long enough to reach where it should connect to. This is mainly done just to make the wiring tidier.
