BabelFish project | Mifare ID# generated changes every time you reupload ? why?

by lili1779 on Tue Dec 04, 2012 2:45 pm

Hello,
Been working on this for about a week. Help would be great. PLEASE.
I was really thankful for the clear direction on how to create the Bablefish RFID/WavShield Project
http://learn.adafruit.com/babel-fish/overview
It was one of the few projects I could find that used both shields together.
When I swipe a myfare RFID sticker ... it creates an ID that I cut and paste into the provided code == AWESOME
However I thought that was the unique myfare ID number for that sticker...
I was wrong.
If I reupload the Babelfish code... the numbers aren't the same... whatever ID# that was created in the previous code is now something completely different.

So... what I want to know... is there a way to keep the generated ID#s consistent?

I also have a question about including millis in this project... but I will deal with that after I figure this out.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

all the stickers should be unique - what are the numbers you are getting?
