AudioFX wav trigger - doesn't show as drive, Act led on

by nathancarter on Thu Jun 21, 2018 7:36 pm

Hi,
I just received my AudioFX board (Order #1781660, part #2220). It won’t show up as a drive on my computer. I’ve tried two Macs and several different cables.

Furthermore, when plugged into USB or when plugged into 5V power on the Vin/gnd pins, the Act LED is continuously on (as is the green Pwr LED). I’ve tried jumping the Rst pin, but no improvement.

I can see the VS1000B audio device on the USB bus, but not the drive.

Anything else I can try?

I emailed support, and got a (auto?) reply suggesting to post here.

Thanks!
Nathan

Small update: I plugged it into a PC and had the same thing - red Act light is continuously on, and it doesn't show up as a drive in Windows File Explorer.

Bumping for visibility - any other things I can do to test/diagnose, or do I need to return it for a replacement?
Thanks!

It sounds like maybe the chip didn't get fully programmed. Let's replace it. Send an email to support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread and they can take care of you.

Sorry for the delayed response on this.

Hi Carter,
I got in touch with support on Friday and my replacement is already on its way. I'll post back to this thread once I receive it and make sure it works.
Thanks!

The replacement arrived, and worked perfectly on the first try. Thanks!

I'll share some videos in the "Show what you made" forum once it's all constructed.
