One i have all the parts just can't seem to get it to work lol
Where did you get up to? Did you get any of it working? Is there a part you're really stuck on?
It'd be a shame to buy all those parts and give up, only because you have a wire the wrong way around or one of the parts was delivered defective.
Jump into the Arduino for Ghostbusters Props group on Facebook and post some photos and details. Maybe we can help, maybe not. But it's worth a shot, right?
As a software engineer, I can tell you right now that "it doesn't work" is the least helpful phrase in troubleshooting.
Whereas something like "I plug it in and the red light flashes 3 times then it completely freezes"...we can work with that!
Also Joseph Lavender has recently released some video tutorials about Arduino Proton Packs, it's possible we can point you to some clips which also apply to the Charlesworth Trap electronics.
Well ive put all the code and Library on the arduino and the mp3 on the sd card check all the wires like 5 times they fine and all i get is a low buzzing off the mp3 player ive checked its getting 5v
Ive unplug every thing to see if anything was stopping the mp3 player from working andstill the same thing
You're right, it could definitely be the SD card. But for some MP3 players it can also be the way the card is formatted or how the files are copied over.
I think you're already making progress here!
I also believe there may be a gbfans thread where someone updated and improved Sean's Arduino code, but I'd have to dig around to find it.
