[21:51] <Laurenceb> hey Rocketboy
[21:51] Action: Laurenceb is trying to run FAT32 on a 16KB avr
[21:52] <Laurenceb> the filesystem seems to be loading, but it hangs when it finds there's no card
[21:52] <RocketBoy> should be possible - the PIC I use is about the same size - I think the FAT code is about 500 bytes
[21:52] <Laurenceb> ram?
[21:53] <RocketBoy> of code
[21:53] <Laurenceb> wow
[21:53] <Laurenceb> surely...
[21:53] <Laurenceb> mine is 12KB
[21:53] <RocketBoy> well its quite basic
[21:53] <Laurenceb> I see
[21:53] <Laurenceb> I've got fopen ect
[21:54] <RocketBoy> just enough to create a single file and write to it - no file read
[21:54] <Laurenceb> ok
[21:54] <Laurenceb> if I stick an led on the spi lines, will I be able to see it flash? or will the data be too fast
[21:55] <Laurenceb> I cant see a thing, but it would be understandable if the volage is high for a few us
[21:55] <RocketBoy> id expect you cound see it
[21:55] <Laurenceb> the power line goes high
[21:56] <RocketBoy> turn the lights off - you can see quire short pulses on a LED
[21:56] <Laurenceb> (the sd card is only powered up when its being used)
[21:56] <RocketBoy> quite
[21:56] <Laurenceb> I'll try, just doing some cooking at the moment
[21:57] <Laurenceb> I'm not sure I've got everything initialised correctly for the spi to work
[21:57] borism (n=boris@88-196-81-187-dsl.krw.estpak.ee) left irc: Read error: 145 (Connection timed out)
[21:57] <Laurenceb> I've used this: http://elm-chan.org/fsw/ff/00index_e.html
[22:05] <Laurenceb> nah cant see anything, I'll have to check the code...
[22:07] <Laurenceb> Rocketboy: I'm going to send that PCB off the batchpcb, do you want to order one/add anything to the order?
[22:07] <Laurenceb> brb
[22:14] <Laurenceb> hmm i think its using high speed spi
[22:15] <Laurenceb> at 16MHz that will be *fast*
[22:15] <Laurenceb> 250 nanoseconds in fact
[22:15] <RocketBoy> bbl
[22:16] <Laurenceb> me 2

[23:18] <Laurenceb> aha the filesystem hangs as timeout doesnt work - timers weren't configured
[23:18] <Laurenceb> it should timeout and give an error upon not finding a card
[23:29] <Laurenceb> cya all
