I have purchased a ITDB02-3.2WD display & associated mega shield from iteadstudio, downloaded the libraries from http://henningkarlsen.com/electronics/library.php?id=51 & had the screen displaying text at startup.

I want to display a bitmap (converted JPG) & have converted the file at the http://henningkarlsen.com website, I have placed the file (Lizard.c) in the code folder. The code compiles ok but when I try & load it I get the following error message.

avrdude: verification error, first mismatch at byte 0x06d4
        0x14 != 0xff
avrdude: verification error; content mismatch

If I comment out my bitmap in the void setup section & un-comment the  //myGLCD.drawBitmap (0, 0, 64, 64, tux, 2); bitmap the code loads & displays the image.

Can anyone give me an idea of what is causing the problem.

I have tried converting a couple of similar jpg files & using them but I get a similar message each time.

My code is all working except when I try & display my bitmaps, obviously I have not included all of the code.

I have made some progress, I saved the file as a png rather than a jpg & converted the file, which I did get to load & display but it did not display properly, still needs some work.


Thought I was going forward turned out I'm going backwards, the file that loaded last night wont load today.

I have tried converting PNG, JPG & Bitmaps but keep getting the same error. Any help would be more than welcome.

It appears the UTFT doesn't like images exported from CorelDraw no matter what file type you export them as. They will convert & they will compile but they wont load.

I printed the image I wanted, took a photo of it, reduced it's size, converted, compiled, loaded & displayed it, bit of a pain really.

If anyone can tell me why I would greatly appreciate it as I do want to use some images I have created in CorelDraw.

I notice that you have

#include <memorysaver.h> // Disables other screen chip information & savers memory space/ Didn't do anything?

In your main sketch.

memorysaver.h is actually called by UTFT.cpp and it does not need to be included anywhere else. What you do need to do is edit memorysaver.h and follow the instructions included i.e.
Uncomment the lines for the displaycontrollers that you don't use

You should see a significant reduction in memory usage.

I have had no problems in creating files in Photoshop and saving them as a JPG, converting them using the supplied software, and using them in a sketch. Maybe there is a problem with the CorelDraw format - can you create what you need in CorelDraw and then load this file into another graphic program and save it from there??
