I increased the buffer size to 8. The esc/POS protocol for the printer communication seems to be a little bit picky but everything is running fine now.

What does the stdio libary do exactly? I couldn't find any reference for it on the arduino pages.

the printer has plenty of paper

and it works with the following code change:

Code:
 initprinter();
  schrift();
  umlaut();
  center();
 thisTXT = random(1, 120);  // DO NOT go over 100 without adjusting the size of the buffer
sprintf( FileName, "%i.txt", thisTXT );

thx for that super fast answer.. What I am exactly trying to do is print out random text snipplets stored on sd card on a POS printer

here is the full code but it doesn't seem to print now (what it did before)

Since I am quite a noob this code ,ay look a little bit odd
 smiley-wink
Code:
//Microprinter V0.1
#include <SD.h>

#include <Debounce.h> // für taster
#include <TrueRandom.h>
#include <stdio.h>
int taster = 5;       // INPUT PIN TASTER
int ledPin1 = 13;     // OUTPUT PIN LED
int thisTXT;
char FileName[7];

Debounce debouncer = Debounce(20 , taster ); //debounce Taster mit 20ms Debounce Zeit

const byte esc = 0x1B; //definiert esc zur Druckerkommunikation
const byte gs = 0x1D;  //definiert gs zur Drukcerkommunikation

File myFile;




              
              






void setup()
{

 
  pinMode(ledPin1, OUTPUT); //
  pinMode(taster, INPUT);
  digitalWrite(taster, HIGH);

  Serial.begin(9600); //serial anschluss für den Drucker
 

randomSeed(TrueRandom.random());
 SD.begin();
}

void SDPrint()
{
  
 thisTXT = random(1, 100);  // DO NOT go over 100 without adjusting the size of the buffer
sprintf( FileName, "%i.txt", thisTXT );
      
    
  
  if (!SD.begin(4))
  
 
 myFile = SD.open( FileName );
  if (myFile) {
    
 
  
    
    // read from the file until there's nothing else in it:
    while (myFile.available()) {
      
  
          Serial.write(myFile.read());


    
    }
    
 
    // close the file:
    
    myFile.close();
  } else {
    
    
        // if the file didn't open, print an error:
    Serial.print("kann Texte nicht lesen");
 Serial.print(0xA, BYTE);
 
  
  }
}

void loop()

{

  debouncer.update();

  int tasterVal = debouncer.read();
  int val = digitalRead(taster);
  if (val == HIGH) {
    digitalWrite(ledPin1, HIGH);
   SDPrint();
    delay(1000);

  }

  else {
    digitalWrite(ledPin1, LOW);

  }
}

I am trying to open a random text file from a SD card.

I am using an indexing array for the filenames but this method seems pretty dumb to me
Code:
File myFile;
char* myTXTs[]={"1.txt", "2.txt", "3.txt", "4.txt", "5.txt","6.txt","7.txt", "8.txt", "9.txt",
               "10.txt", "11.txt", "12.txt", "13.txt", "14.txt", "15.txt", "16.txt", "17.txt", "18.txt", "19.txt",
               "20.txt", "21.txt", "22.txt", "23.txt", "24.txt", "25.txt", "26.txt", "27.txt", "28.txt", "29.txt",
               "30.txt", "31.txt", "32.txt", "33.txt", "34.txt", "35.txt", "36.txt", "37.txt", "38.txt", "39.txt",
               "40.txt", "41.txt"," 42.txt"," 43.txt", "44.txt", "45.txt", "46.txt", "47.txt", "48.txt", "49.txt",
               "50.txt", "51.txt", "52.txt", "53.txt", "54.txt", "55.txt", "56.txt", "57.txt", "58.txt", "59.txt",
               "60.txt", "61.txt", "62.txt", "63.txt", "64.txt", "65.txt", "66.txt", "67.txt", "68.txt", "69.txt",
               "70.txt", "71.txt", "72.txt", "73.txt", "74.txt", "75.txt", "76.txt", "77.txt", "78.txt", "79.txt",
               "80.txt", "81.txt", "82.txt", "83.txt", "84.txt", "85.txt", "86.txt", "87.txt", "88.txt", "89.txt",
               "90.txt", "91.txt", "92.txt", "93.txt", "94.txt", "95.txt", "96.txt", "97.txt", "98.txt", "99.txt"};
               *
*
*
*

thisTXT = random(1, 100);

 myFile = SD.open(myTXTs[thisTXT]);



this method uses a lot of ram and I'am asking if there is simpler way?
I would like to pick out one random text file from a pool of 2000 stored on SD card
