Do you think it's the raspberry pi or the software that's the problem?

Fresh boot of Jessie on a clean new card ?

Pays to preformat the dard using SD formatter too...

What happens if you have a good clean card that works on another Pi ?

Power supply noisey / budget ?

Pi3 need a Decent few amps of solid 5 volts esp if you are cranking out the wifi.

Thanks everyone to answer questions, We have gotten a new sd card that works with Jesse but are trying with omv. The power supply came with the pi and is about 2.5 amps and not making any sounds. We are using a Linux dd in terminal to format cards (cub linux). If we do the have any luck with omv we will change back to raspian and setting it up with that like we had but that crashed on us before.

Hi,

I haven't used omv myself, but anything that's running on a Pi 24x7 and writing back to the OS file system (which is on the SD card) will cause "write wear" on the card.  An SD card can only handle so many wites before they fail.  I had a similar problem to that which you've decribed (unable to login) on a Pi 1 that was running for months.  once an SD card is "worn out" by repeated writing, it's throw away.  It may appear that it will reformat and work again but, trust me, it won't work for long.

So, best advice for applications that are running on a Pi constantly is to use top quality SD cards and configure the system not to write logs to the OS file system if you can.

Also, 2.5A power supply for the Pi should be fine, just as long as you've got seperate power supplies for any hard drives you've got conncted to the Pi so that they're not drawing power from th Pi's USB ports.

Thanx - Mark
