Can't get my MP3 shield VS1053 to work

Post by Newbie » Sat Aug 30, 2014 8:00 pm

After connecting my Shield to the Arduino, I tried to upload the MP3 shield library demo, but I got the following error messages.
I'm new to Arduino and don't now what to do with these error messages.
Can anyone please help?



Error messages :

Dear Newbie,
I am sincerely sorry for the inconvenience we brought to you. It is our negligence that makes you encounter this error because we failed to update the program in time which does not match the file SFEMP3Shield.h.Thanks for your notification, we will update the program at once.
However, you can rest assured that since the MP3 shield can work with the file player Example as you said before; it means the MP3 shield is ok. You can develop your project based on the player Example or try agrain with the new program that we update in our WIKI which is named MP3-TF.zip. Extend our sincere apologies again and thank you very much.

Dear friend,
I am sorry to hear that.But I have to tell you that the only thing we can do is to make sure the MP3shield is ok.We can not do the secondary development together with you.In addition, we also do not have the tools for your development.If you are new to arduino,I suggest you to learn something about it.And then,you can do your project by youself.

I Can't get my MP3 shield VS1053 to work either

Hello Newbie perhaps you can help me with my vs1053 shield. I can't get mine to work either. And when I ask a question they tell you learn to do it yourself. WFT? Thanks for pointing out that their code is malware.

I updated the config.h file in the MP3shield library and suddenly things started to work for me. Michael P Flaga gave me the link to the correct file. http://mpflaga.github.io/Sparkfun-MP3-P ... ource.html
Pitchoilcan, I don't think a real Newbie can help you out. I'm not used to programming. I only got some freebie codes to work for me. You might give it a try ;)
At least I know my shield works.

Hi Pitchoilcan,
Would you like to share the way you did or point to the arduino forum thread?
Thanks!

I made a few tweaks and managed to play mp3 on a Leonardo but the sound is just not right. It is slow and had this 'wobbly' quality.

Has any one had any success using a Arduino Leonardo or Mega2560 with the shield?

I can share what I gleaned but the sound is wrong. I don't know where else to look.
