!!! ..??  

Yes, your right... I passed my time to work on electronics and not translation... it becomes like that... sorry !?
It would be more positive for you to write this ... in French... no ?
There are people who collect posts by this way,... there is others who work... it's the life.
But... thx

I had the same problem with the MEGA and I was able to change the pins within the code and it worked properly. thank you for the help.

below is the code I used and I modified it/made notes for some more people can understand.





/*
  SD card test - It checks to see if the wiring is correct, card is inserted and compatible ( Used: LC STUDIO SD CARD READER )
 
 This example shows how use the utility libraries on which the'
 SD library is based in order to get info about your SD card.
 Very useful for testing a card when you're not sure whether its working or not.

 The circuit:
  * SD card attached to SPI bus as follows:
 ** MOSI - pin 11 on Arduino Uno/Duemilanove/Diecimila
 ** MISO - pin 12 on Arduino Uno/Duemilanove/Diecimila
 ** CLK - pin 13 on Arduino Uno/Duemilanove/Diecimila
 ** CS - depends on your SD card shield or module.
       Pin 4 used here for consistency with other Arduino examples

Sd2Card card;
SdVolume volume;
SdFile root;
