Re: usage

In the last post I forgot the most important thing. I had removed the SD card. Now, when I put the SD card in the camera (with the 8 traces facing down in the connector) I get the same response in windows explorer. I will get a new SD like you suggested and see if it works.

Re: usage

when I plug in the camera removable disk K shows up under computer in windows explorer.

However, using properties it says it has 80 KB which is not the size of the SD card.

I tried UART1 and the transmitter works correctly. So, I can use UART1 instead of UART3.
