thanks for that. I would love to know, because through all my searching I seem to be the only one with the problem. If I find out in the meantime, I will let you know. as a recap, here is what I have checked....
2 boards, 2 versions of firmware
2GB sd card tried fat12 and fat32
All files can be seen be the RogueSD library
sync() returns 0 playfile seems to not do anything since getplaybackstatus() always returns S after calling playfile()
windows 7 64 bit runing version 0022 of arduino dev software
tried the latest SoftwareSerial libraries as well as NewSoftSerial,
Tried the mp3 files I uploaded and sent the link to.www.westhierry.net/JEDI.zip
tried with headphones as well as powered speakers.
ran through all of the diagnostics from the old arduino rmp3 thread (the READ only one) and I seem to pass all the questions... so I know my board is soldered well.
