FX Sound Board can't see files from mega board

by millbill73 on Fri Nov 08, 2019 4:04 pm

I have the 16BMB FX sound board. I wired it to my Arduino Mega board as examples show. I know the example was a UNO and I made the code and wiring changes as needed. When the code runs I see everything I should see. I can run the utility commands like change volume and reset the card. I see the red led flash when it resets. All looks fine, but I can't see any files I loaded or the original T00 file. I loaded several WAV files from my PC via the USB port. It all looks good from the USB port. So I have no clue what else to try other then get a replacement. Any ideas? I bought this a month ago from MicoCenter.

Post a photo showing your hardware and connections and we'll take a look. 800x600 images usually work best.

The FX Board's firmware needs to see filenames in 8.3 format: 12345678.EXT

Is the Windows file listing just hiding the extensions?

Yes is it. Note in the Type column two files are .wav and the other is the original file that was preloaded on the board.

Just to similarly things, I wired the sound board this morning to my UNO using the on line tutorial on your web site. The results were same. The utility commands work but can't list or play any files. Sure acts like a defective board to me. I will let you decide. Thanks.

Yeah, something is going wrong there.

Send a note containing a link to this page and your order number to support!@adafruit.com. The folks there will get you a replacement FX Board.
