Cloning the SD card is simple

Just follow these steps:

  1.  Get everything set up just the way you want it on your Raspberry Pi, whatever

       you're using it for. Then shut down the Pi and remove the SD  card.

       Insert the SD card into your computer or external reader.

  2.  Start up  (Win32 Disk Imager) , a program that you probably have from when

       you first set up your Pi. (If you're on OS X or Linux, you'll have to use the

       dd command as described here instead of these step.)

  3.  In the "Image File" box, enter the path of your soon to be image file.

       I used downloads directory made a folder called Images

      C:\downloads\Image

  4.  Back to the Win 32 disk imager click on the blue folder, find the directory

       C:\downloads\Image  (to this \ dvmega.img what will show on command

       line back on the Disk      C:\downloads\Image\dvmega.img

        (replace the name with what ever you like.

  5.  Click the "read" button to creating the image from your SD card to the computer.

  6.  When it's done creating the image file, you can eject your SD card and put it back

       in the Pi . -OR-

  7.  Now let's make new image insert your new SD card into your reader and go to

       where you had made you new Image a copy  this to the SD card using

       Win32 Disk Imager ...
