The code worked on my Ardino Uno. I plugged it up the exact same way and am now getting an error.

Here is the error I get when I try to upload my code to the due:

exit status 1
Error compiling for board Arduino Due (Programming Port).

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

Here is my code:

#include <SPI.h>
#include <SdFat.h>
#include <SdFatUtil.h>
#include <SFEMP3Shield.h>


SdFat sd;
SFEMP3Shield MP3player;

const uint8_t volume = 10; // MP3 Player volume 0=max, 255=lowest (off)
//10 for normal 50 for testing

const uint16_t monoMode = 1;

void setup() {
  initSD();
  initMP3Player();
}

void loop() {
  if(!MP3player.isPlaying()){
    MP3player.playTrack(1);
  }
}

void initSD() {
  if(!sd.begin(SD_SEL, SPI_HALF_SPEED)) 
    sd.initErrorHalt();
  if(!sd.chdir("/")) 
    sd.errorHalt("sd.chdir");
}

void initMP3Player() {
  uint8_t result = MP3player.begin();
  MP3player.setVolume(volume, volume);
  MP3player.setMonoMode(monoMode);
}

The library is written for the Uno, not the Due. It relies on two instructions that are only available in the AVR compiler.

Newer versions of the core provide a pair of macros, interrupts() and noInterrupts() that should be used in place of sei() and cli() respectively, which should be provided by the Due's core as well to make it cross-platform. However that library has never been updated to work with those macros.

You could replace the sei() and cli() calls in the library with interrupts() and noInterrupts(), however that may not make it work, since it was written with the Uno and other AVR based chips in mind.

  • I don't have permission to change that library file. Do you know how I can get it? – Wes Summers Dec 26 '18 at 22:46
  • You must have permission to edit it, otherwise you won't have been able to install it in the first place. Or are you on some strange system controlled by some overarching all knowing power? – Majenko Dec 26 '18 at 22:50
  • I just changed the permissions in the properties. The code uploads, but the board does nothing. It doesn't even blink when I hit reset. – Wes Summers Dec 26 '18 at 23:11
  • I feared as much. The library probably needs much work to run on a due. – Majenko Dec 26 '18 at 23:33
  • do you have a suggestion on how i can play mp3 files on a due, maybe a different shield or something? – Wes Summers Dec 26 '18 at 23:35
