  • Brad, thanks for your comment.

    I am trying to use the Arduino Mega 2560 with this shield (no transmorgi shield). New to programming and very unsure why it keeps failing the initialization test. I haven't soldered yet, but I want to be sure I have the right setup first. We still have power going to the shield.

    Customer service told me not to connect header pins to 11-13 on the shield to the arduino; as well as to use a 2x3 female header to connect the ICSP to the shield, which we have done(should that be soldered as well?). Could you please go over how you got it to work in detail as I cannot get the test to work. I would greatly appreciate your help, as it seems we have similar setups.

    For instance, how do you get and alter SD2card.h? Should all the pins be connected? What kind of code changes should be made to the standard SD card initialization test?

No public wish lists :(
