    You should still see the files even if they are configured for the Pi. No point in sending the sd car back to Allo. Much simpler to follow the instructions to format the sd card and install Volumio. a bit of a pain I agree if the card was meant to be formatted with Volumio.

If I remove the jumper only one of the LEDs illuminates, depending on whether I feed power to the Boss or the Pi.
    This is exactly how it should be. If you remove the jumper, you should power the DAC and the Pi separately.

    What power supply are you using, by the way?

    Excuse my ignorance, but I didn't understand the statement "It's also possible that your Pi is booting up in AP (Access Point) mode. If so, 'Volumio' will appear in your list of available networks and you will need to connect to it." I can't see any additional device, wired or otherwise, on my router setup page. Likewise no reference to Volumio.
    I tried removing the SD card to check it on my desktop, and Windows Explorer says it is empty. I assume the files Allo should have loaded won't necessarily be readable in Windows, but shouldn't something show up? My feeling at the moment is the most likely explanation is that Allo sent me a blank card! If this is the case, how would I go about getting them to send me what was promised?
    Download the latest Volumio image from volumio.org and flash it to the SD card using Etcher (etcher.io).

    If the problem persists, connect the Pi to a display to see what’s going on.
