I really struggled to get the Music Shield working and I still can’t play a MP3 with it.
I tried Demo1 and Demo2.
I tried various zips and rars scattered around different threads.
Still it fails.
The wiki should be up to date, otherwise it’s just wasting people’s time!
Here are the details:
-Arduino R2 with Music Shield v1.13
-Arduino IDE 1.0 and 1.0.5 on Linux
Demo1 complains about newSPI missing but I managed to compile Demo2.
When running it, it complains about the SD init failing though.
But the SD/listfiles example from Arduino IDE works and is able to list all the files of my 2GB Fat 16 formatted SD card
I tried a Fat16 example and it failed.
Are the v1.0, v1.13, v2.0 and v2.2 versions of the MusicShield compatible? Can they use the same software?
So please provide a simple example that at most needs a change for the different shield versions support.
And also a sample Mp3 file so I can be sure the problem doesn’t come from my MP3 files.
