I am completely new to Arduino and as many of you could have predicted... I am running into problems. I was hoping to avoid issues by following this guide:http://www.cooking-hacks.com/index.php/blog/tutorial-rfid-13-56-mhz-nfc-module-for-arduino
But the code in this guide is not working for me.
The only way I differed from the guide is the tags. I purchased these: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10128
I have the Arduino: Uno, The XBEE Shield and the 13.56 MHz/NFC Module that is referenced in the guide. So far, using the code above, this is what I get from the serial monitor:
I am using the code from Step 2: Reading tags. Now, from the original code in the guide I did have to change serial.print(0x00, BYTE) to serial.write(0x00). I tried to post the code, but it makes this too long. I don't know how much of an effect that had, but that's what worked up until this point. I also don't know if there are any UID's on the tags I have right now, but I can't find out either way so far. I understand the gist of what's going on but I just don't understand enough about code to fix this myself. Some help is greatly appreciated!
