i need help changing the code from ping 3pin to (hc-sr04) 4pin ultrasonic

hello guys am new to the arduino forum this is my first time using an arduino
i have found a project on the web (sonar for the blind)
it has
2 x ping sensors (3pin)
2 x small servos (i couldn’t find any) the hobby shop guy gave me two mobile vibrators and said put a transistor and it’ll work is that true ?
an arduino
we don’t have the ping 3 pin in my country
we only have hc-sr04
and i don’t know how to change the code
i know how to write simple codes i’ve never used a sonar
the code…

//  Written for Arduino authoring environment version 0022 and a Arduino Mini Pro 5V but should work on any Arduino/Arduino compatible that provides 5 volts.
// This version supports the following hardware:
//      Parallax PING))) ultrasonic sensors for range finding
//               Connect the GND pin to ground, +5V pin to +5V, and SIG to pin 2 or 3.
//      Just about any small hobby servo. (Specifically Turnigy TG9)
//               Connect the ground to ground, +V to RAW and the signal to pins 7 or 8.
// Version history:
//  11.08.07 - original
//  11.08.14 - Added code so servos apply constant pressure even when readings are not changing.
//  11.10.11 - Added pause after each sensor reading to fix reported issue with left sensor occasionally giving garbage responses.
//  12.02.04 - Changed license from CC BY-NC-SA to the MIT license.

Moderator edit: Code tags. Again

There is a library called NewPing which can handle the ranging: http://playground.arduino.cc/Code/NewPing

can you help me a little more please

Can you stop cross-posting? (I've deleted the duplicates) And use code tags (I've edited those)

Who is Senor Close?

can you help me a little more please

If your code is well-designed, most of the changes should be restricted to getDistance

am really sorry for other posts am new here and i dont know where to put it as far as i've seen the distance is more by a meter in the hc-sr04 this is not my code. its from a project i found online only it uses 3 pin ultrasonic and i didn't find it any where in my country i only found hc-sr04 how can i connect it to the arduino what do i need to change in this code an new to the arduino i've worked with pic before but it has nothing to do with arduino can you give me a working code for my ultrasonic ? i really need it and have no idea what to do i already have the parts it's a project am giving to school thank you very much for your time

Have you tried looking for examples of using the HC-SR04? What part of the many available examples do you not understand?

I have the same issue, sorry for open this topic again, but I want to ask if you did it with hcsr04?
