    Hi, I am trying to make a data logger using this and the bmp085 pressure sensor. When I output the variables on a serial port it comes up with the correct data but when I write it to a sd card, it always prints: Temperature = 12.80 *C Pressure = 99977 Pa Altitude = 70.78 meters

    every single minute it will print this even though on a serial port it will work. Can someone help me please?
    btw this is my code:

    /* BMP085 Extended Example Code by: Jim Lindblom SparkFun Electronics date: 1/18/11 license: CC BY-SA v3.0 - http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/

    Get pressure and temperature from the BMP085 and calculate altitude. Serial.print it out at 9600 baud to serial monitor.

    Update (7/19/11): I’ve heard folks may be encountering issues with this code, who’re running an Arduino at 8MHz. If you’re using an Arduino Pro 3.3V/8MHz, or the like, you may need to increase some of the delays in the bmp085ReadUP and bmp085ReadUT functions. */
