 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello, recently I have encountered numerous problems with the VeeaR EasyVR Shield, after downloading all necessary software, I recorded various commands into the VR shield, this went smoothly however I am finding issues when uploading the programming to go with the Easy Vr Shield, I have received the same issues when uploading onto either of my Mega 2560 boards or my Arduino Uno, I am running the Arduino 1.5.2 software and the correct drivers for each board.
This is my code I am attempting to upload:
 
Code:
#include "Arduino.h"
#include "SoftwareSerial.h"
SoftwareSerial port(12,13);
#include "EasyVR.h"
EasyVR easyvr(port);

//Groups and Commands
enum Groups
{
  GROUP_0  = 0,
  GROUP_1  = 1,
  GROUP_3  = 3,
};

enum Group0
{
  G0_ROBOT= 0,
};

enum Group1
{
  G1_MOVE = 0,
  G1_TIME = 1,
  G1_DATE = 2,
  G1_LOCATION = 3,
  G1_TEMPERATURE = 4,
  G1_COLOUR = 5,
  G1_HUMIDITY = 6,
  G1_MOTION = 7,
  G1_DISTANCE = 8,
  G1_BEARING = 9,
  G1_POWER = 10,
  G1_AIR = 11,
  G1_DISPLAY = 12,
  G1_QUESTION = 13,
  G1_MANUAL = 14,
  G1_AUTO = 15,
  G1_RUN = 16,
  G1_POWERDOWN = 17,
  G1_WAKEUP = 18,
};

enum Group3
{
  G3_LEFT = 0,
  G3_RIGHT = 1,
  G3_FORWARD = 2,
  G3_BACKWARD = 3,
  G3_FOLLOW = 4,
  G3_STOP = 5,
  G3_GRAB = 6,

After uploading this I receive the following error messages:

Quote
avrdude: stk500v2_RecieveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_RecieveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_RecieveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_RecieveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_RecieveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_RecieveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_getsync(): timeout communicating with programmer

More recently I have begun to only receive the 'famous' -
avrdude: stk500v2_getsync(): resp=0x00
- error upon uploading, however I am unsure how related these two error messages are.

I am a competent programmer however I may simply be making a rookie error here or most likely there is an issue with my EasyVR Shield, considering that the example code from the library also results in the same upload errors I think this is most likely the case, however any advice would be greatly appreciated here  smiley

Does it upload to the Arduino without the VR Shield attached?

Have you checked that the correct board is selected under "Tools>Board?"

I have some experience with the EasyVR shield and willing to help.

Thank you very much, yes the correct port has been selected and yes the program will upload to the board without the Vr Shield attached, I tried uploading the program to the mega/uno and then attaching the shield however when I connect the power I only receive a solitary ' w ' through the serial display I am unsure if this is a fault message or just a start up bug of the Vr, other than that I have no success with the Vr shield apart from the LED telling me it is on.  smiley-confuse

What are the jumpers set to on the shield?

Do you mean the UP, PC, HW and SW double male headers to the right of the logo on the shield? If so then there is a connector between the first and second rows of the PC pin, sorry if this is not what you mean...

Move that jumper to SW and try it again.
