Thanks for the response, Jacket. I did remove Music_v1_7, as well as Music_v1_2. I also grabbed Fat16 directly from google code. Still getting the same error. Where are the variables "listoffset" and "indexlist" defined?

Hi,

I am also having the same troubles, I can't get any other demo apart from Demo 1 to work, the one that plays all the files. I am trying to find out what libraries actually work for playing and individual file. Seems like many people are having trouble it geeting these shields to work following the wiki instructions. Just to make it more confusing there is this wiki site too?
http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/Music_Shield_V2.0 It is rather confusing all this and I don't normally have any troubles in getting products from SeeedStudio working.

Hi,everyone
I have added a attachment,you would delete your older files about Fat16 and MusicPlayer...first(attention please:delete files but not overlay files), and then,unzip the attachment to your Arduino libraries(Fat16 and MusicShieldNewSDLib).
Open MusicPlayWithName demo,you need be care of the name of your song
Love little, love long.

Hi,

I followed the post exactly and deleted the libraries required and the unziped the new libraries into the correct location. I started again with a fresh Arduino 1.0.2 install and these are the only two libraries I have added. I now get a compile error like below.

In file included from MusicPlayWithName.ino:39:
C:\Users\jeremy.PSY\Dropbox\arduino-1.0.2\libraries\MusicShieldNewSDLib/newSDLib.h:28: error: 'SdCard' does not name a type
C:\Users\jeremy.PSY\Dropbox\arduino-1.0.2\libraries\MusicShieldNewSDLib/newSDLib.h:29: error: 'Fat16' does not name a type

To update my previous post, I can now get the example to complie the issue seems to be is that the Fat16 Library zip file has a nested folder inside called FAT16Demo2 which needs to be extracted out properly.
The code now compiles but it still does not play the one song I have on the SD card with the exact same name as in the code. The green LED is on solid.

cheers
Jeremy

Dear jeremy6
I'm Glad that the problem is solving step by step. And the terminal is coming... :)
You compile the program without errors but the music still can't be played,so you should:
1) format your SD Card

2)make sure that the type of your music, mp3、wma or wav,and check name of music again. If the name is BigBoom and the type is mp3,the demo will be modified
/*demo change*/
playFile("BigBoom.mp3");
/*demo end*/

Hope those can be solved your problem.
Best Regards
Jacket

Hi,

I have checked that many times already that the name of the file on the card matches the name in the sketch. I see I am not the only one who can't get the code to work to play a single file by hame. Not sure what to do now, it's not much use without being able to play individual track, has limited funtionalilty. Has anyone managed to make the shield work with any of the demo code apart from the Demo 1 which does work?

I'm sorry that i make a big mistake, the libraries i gave you is refer to Demo 2,but you want to play music with name through Demo 1.
Please delete your libraries about Demo 2(Fat16 and MusicShieldNewSDLib)first,because the libraries of Fat16 between Demo 1 and Demo2 is different. and then download the following liraries.

My first Seed product and I'm less than impressed with what I've seen so far let's hope this can be changed.

I've spent quite a while tonight working with what I've seen in this thread with no success. I'm using the following method although I've gotten both to compile and load :

Method 2: Use Fat16 library
This method will use an open source library Fat16 library. There are two sketches in this demo: Using MusicPlayRandomly sketch, you can make the music play randomly.And using MusicPlayWithName, you can specify which song to be played by name.(Note: The demo can't co-exist with demo 1 in the libraries)
Make sure there are songs in the micro sd card.
Download File:MusicShieldNewSDLib.zip and Fat16_lib for music shield.
[Under Linux] Copy libraries/Fat16/Fat16util.h to libraries/Fat16/Fat16Util.h (note util vs Util). The includes have the wrong case and this is easiest workaround.
Uncompress these two packages and put them in Arduino-1.0 program: ..\arduino-1.0\libraries
Select the corresponding Arduino board, like Arduino UNO or Duemilanove or others.
[Ignore this if under Linux] Download a new portpins.h file and replace the default portpins.h file of Arduino-1.0 program: ..\arduino-1.0\hardware\tools\avr\avr\include\avr
Run the arduino program compile and upload the sketch of MusicShieldNewSdLib into Arduino board.

- my sd is formated to FAT32
- I know the file name I'm using in play by name demo matches my file (2.wav)
- Arduino Uno
- IDE 1.0.1
I see the following in the serial monitor indicating that the program is running but consistently fails when trying to use the provided library to access the card / file:

err failed
SD error: 2error: open file failed
SD error: 2error: open file failed
SD error: 2error: open file failed
SD erroerror: card.init failed
SD error: 2error: open file failed
SD error: 2error: open file failed
SD error: 2error: open file failed
SD error: 2error: open file failed
SD error: 2error: open file failed
SD error: 2error: open file failed
SD error: 2error: open file failed

....
.... SD error: 2error: open file failed continues forever...

Any lead on what might be the issue here?

Anybody from Seeed going to offer info? I'm just going to return the damn thing to the store and build a wav shield if I don't get it working in the next day or two and I'll be sure to tell the sales reps of my experience.
