First we will need to setup the raspberry pi with all the needed software including raspbian (or similar).
Format your SD card using FAT32. I highly recommend not using a cheap card because it will break much sooner. I used a cheap SD card for about 3 months before losing all the data I didn’t back up.
Now install raspbian on your SD card. I am on a Mac so I will just use the terminal to burn the image file I downloaded from the raspberry pi official website.
Taken from the raspberry pi website here are the following commands I used to write the raspbian image card to the SD card.
diskutil unmountDisk /dev/[disk# from diskutil]
sudo dd bs=1m if=[your image file].img of=/dev/[disk# from diskutil]
