Hi there.

Seem to have some problems implimenting this tutorial with the accelerometer chip.

http://arduino.berlios.de/index.php/Tutorial/AccelerometerMemsic2125

The code only ran once and didn't even loop when we tried it.

Did anybody manage to make it work? Any problems or tweaks?

Silly question, but are you sure you have the accelerometer wired properly?  The code will loop infinitely if the pulses it expects from the accelerometers don't arrive.

Hi Mellis. Worked out the problem the photo on the Arduino tutorial is incorrect. The +5v wire is touching the wrong pin. I have sent David a corrected photo so things will be updated in the tutorials.
