1  Using Arduino / Audio / Re: NEVERMIND - Adafruit Wave Shield Questions on: February 20, 2012, 05:54:23 pm
Hi Soapy

How did you do it in the end?  I have exactly the same problem.  I did get my wave shield working eventually with the 0022 IDE but with the 1.0 I just get the same errors as you.

I have now installed the latest driver, and now have more problems starting with "SdReader does not name a type".  I have transferred the WaveHC library to the library in the new IDE but it still isn't working.

Right, I am now downloading the latest IDE.. see if that helps.  Thank you very much for replying by the way..

Version 0022.   However this bit of code came from WaveHC20110919 library to operate a waveshield on top of the arduino

I am puzzled, I have copied the same bit of code from a sketch which verified fine, and yet in my new sketch exactly the same code brings up an error message

The error is: expected initialiser before "int" on the line which says: #include <SdReader.h>

#include <FatReader.h>
#include <SdReader.h>
#include <avr/pgmspace.h>
#include "WaveUtil.h"
#include "WaveHC.h"

I just cannot see why this same code layout would work in one sketch and not another..any help would be hugely appreciated
6  Topics / Interactive Art / Artwork not working on: November 27, 2011, 07:00:46 pm
I built an artwork last summer using latching relays and mechanical trip wire switches but it was no very reliable so I have completely redesigned it around an arduino..but having spent hours and ££ I now cannot get it to work and it feels very disheartening.

Basically the scheme is as follows

pir sensor detects movement->
a short voice message is played through speaker 'b' and two leds flash inviting passers by to put a coin through a slot ->

if a coin goes through the slot it triggers a switch ->
a motor is turns on and rotates a wheel anticlockwise ->
another short message plays saying thank you through speaker 'a' ->
a lug on the rotating wheels knocks a switch ->
after 4 second delay the motor stops ->
end of sequence

so I can get the arduino to switch on and off the led lights

I have uploaded the code for the PIR, the output from the PIR seems permantnently on HIGH, unit isn't working!

The SN754410 H bridge is wired up including a separate 12v supply for the motor..but whenever that is plugged in the chip gets extremely hot very quickly.  I tried uploading the code to make the motor turn, activated by the coin through the slot: it doesn't.  Don't know why.  Is the chip now fried because it got hot, or is that normal.  If it should not then what have I done wrong.

I simply cannot get my Arduino on my laptop to accept a sketch to try out the Wave shield..all I get is pages of error messages. 

Right now, I feel like sticking the whole lot in the toaster.  I have searched the forums and tried different things to resolve the various problems and got nowhere.

any advice welcome
