help me !!!!!!!!!!!!
the SD card doesn't work with Leonardo kit but work with UNO kit !!
i use this code
Code: [Select]

/*
  SD card test
   

#include <SD.h>

Sd2Card card;
SdVolume volume;
SdFile root;


const int chipSelect = 4;   

void setup()
{

  Serial.begin(9600);
   while (!Serial) {
    ; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for Leonardo only
  }


  Serial.print("\nInitializing SD card...");
  // On the Ethernet Shield, CS is pin 4. It's set as an output by default.
  // Note that even if it's not used as the CS pin, the hardware SS pin
  // (10 on most Arduino boards, 53 on the Mega) must be left as an output
  // or the SD library functions will not work.
  pinMode(10, OUTPUT);     // change this to 53 on a mega


  // we'll use the initialization code from the utility libraries
  // since we're just testing if the card is working!
  if (!card.init(SPI_HALF_SPEED, chipSelect)) {
    Serial.println("initialization failed. Things to check:");
    Serial.println("* is a card is inserted?");
    Serial.println("* Is your wiring correct?");
    Serial.println("* did you change the chipSelect pin to match your shield or module?");
    return;
  } else {
   Serial.println("Wiring is correct and a card is present.");
  }

  // print the type of card
  Serial.print("\nCard type: ");
  switch(card.type()) {
    case SD_CARD_TYPE_SD1:
      Serial.println("SD1");
      break;
    case SD_CARD_TYPE_SD2:
      Serial.println("SD2");
      break;
    case SD_CARD_TYPE_SDHC:
      Serial.println("SDHC");
      break;
    default:
      Serial.println("Unknown");
  }

  // Now we will try to open the 'volume'/'partition' - it should be FAT16 or FAT32
  if (!volume.init(card)) {
    Serial.println("Could not find FAT16/FAT32 partition.\nMake sure you've formatted the card");
    return;
  }


  // print the type and size of the first FAT-type volume
  uint32_t volumesize;
  Serial.print("\nVolume type is FAT");
  Serial.println(volume.fatType(), DEC);
  Serial.println();
 
  volumesize = volume.blocksPerCluster();    // clusters are collections of blocks
  volumesize *= volume.clusterCount();       // we'll have a lot of clusters
  volumesize *= 512;                            // SD card blocks are always 512 bytes
  Serial.print("Volume size (bytes): ");
  Serial.println(volumesize);
  Serial.print("Volume size (Kbytes): ");
  volumesize /= 1024;
  Serial.println(volumesize);
  Serial.print("Volume size (Mbytes): ");
  volumesize /= 1024;
  Serial.println(volumesize);

 
  Serial.println("\nFiles found on the card (name, date and size in bytes): ");
  root.openRoot(volume);
 
  // list all files in the card with date and size
  root.ls(LS_R | LS_DATE | LS_SIZE);
}


void loop(void) {
 
}

The Leonardo is a bit different than the Uno. The SPI data lines are not on any digital pins. They are only on the ICSP pins. This is from the Leonardo datasheet:
Quote
SPI: on the ICSP header. These pins support SPI communication using the SPI library. Note that the SPI pins are not connected to any of the digital I/O pins as they are on the Uno, They are only available on the ICSP connector. This means that if you have a shield that uses SPI, but does NOT have a 6-pin ICSP connector that connects to the Leonardo's 6-pin ICSP header, the shield will not work.

what!!!!! =( =( =( =( =( =( =(
but i need work it with RFID reader
what i can do????!

SurferTim

Don't panic! Are these shields or a separate circuit board?


mostafa_zied

yes , i need to connect NFC/RFID shield V1.0
with SD card
what i can do???

SurferTim

That depends on you. If you are willing to experiment, and "pin bend" a little, you could probably get the shield working. What you will need to do is jumper the ICSP pins to D11-D13 so it will be Uno compatible. Are you willing to try that?

Don't panic...and don't forget your towel!  :)

mostafa_zied

yes i will try but tell me the details plllzzz  :%

There is a pic of the Leonardo here:
http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardLeonardo

You can see the ICSP connector there. The upper left pin is pin 1, and on the left side is pin 3 and pin 5 below it. The upper right pin is pin 2 and below it is pin 4 and pin 6.

Pin 1 is MISO -> D12 on shield
Pin 3 is SCK -> D13 on shield
Pin 4 is MOSI -> D11 on shield

Here is the schematic. ICSP is in the upper left corner.

I won't accept any responsibility for experiments. It is an "implied risk" deal.
