Problem with Adafruit Musicmaker Shield

Hi everybody :slight_smile: ,

I’ve a problem with this Shield Adafruit

I followed the instructions. TUT
Now, my Arduino Uno/Adafruit mp3 Board looks like this:

so weit so gut.

After that I installed the Library and I wanted to test the Shield.
But it doesn’t work with the “test-code”…
So here is the code:

/***************************************************

  // If DREQ is on an interrupt pin (on uno, #2 or #3) we can do background
  // audio playing
  musicPlayer.useInterrupt(VS1053_FILEPLAYER_PIN_INT);  // DREQ int
  
  // Play one file, don't return until complete
  Serial.println(F("Playing track 001"));
  musicPlayer.playFullFile("track001.mp3");
  // Play another file in the background, REQUIRES interrupts!
  Serial.println(F("Playing track 002"));
  musicPlayer.startPlayingFile("track002.mp3");
}

void loop() {
  // File is playing in the background

    char c = Serial.read();

    if (c == 's') {
      musicPlayer.stopPlaying();
    }
    
    // if we get an 'p' on the serial console, pause/unpause!
    if (c == 'p') {
      if (! musicPlayer.paused()) {
        Serial.println("Paused");
        musicPlayer.pausePlaying(true);
      } else { 
        Serial.println("Resumed");
        musicPlayer.pausePlaying(false);
      }
    }
  }

  delay(100);
}

:confused:
Arduino tells me this:
Adafruit VS1053 Simple Test
Couldn’t find VS1053, do you have the right pins defined?

(The Reset Button on the Shield works…)

I’m totally confused…
Maybe it’s a little thing… I don’t know.

I need this shield for an interactive Soundinstallation-Project at the University…
And I am a total beginner…

Community, please help me :slight_smile:

best regards :slight_smile:

There is

define SHIELD_RESET -1 // VS1053 reset pin (unused!)

Unused! ??

But there's that one line Adafruit_VS1053_FilePlayer(BREAKOUT_RESET, BREAKOUT_CS, BREAKOUT_DCS, DREQ, CARDCS); that gets modified to

Adafruit_VS1053_FilePlayer(SHIELD_RESET, SHIELD_CS, SHIELD_DCS, DREQ, CARDCS); which uses SHIELD_RESET (which is not properly defined.)

So, the SHIELD_RESET pin should be defined, I think, but it isn't. Does defining a pin as "-1" decommission it?

What if you change it to Adafruit_VS1053_FilePlayer(SHIELD_CS, SHIELD_DCS, DREQ, CARDCS);

? ?
