I have received a VS1005 board this morning and have been looking for a quickstart guide for the last hour. The board doesn't come with any printed material.

I figured out browsing through the forums where to download a serial driver.

I am getting a bit aggravated and a bit disappointed. Does one have to buy this book to use the board?

The vs1053 book does not help you much with vs1005. There is material for vs1005 in the VSOS forum, there are also some videos.

Hello Pasi,

Thanks for your answer. :)
I got most of my stuff working.
I do MP3 recording and log GPS position on the SD card. I want to be able later to connect my device to a PC and see the SD card and its data as a drive on the PC. The acquisition software would not operate when the VS1005 USB is connected to a host.
The GPS is currently connected to the VS1005 through the serial interface but I am considering using the SPI interface instead, if I can get it to work. I would be reserving the serial port as debug, particularly because the GPS is sending data all the time and that interferes with the OS when rebooting.

I still have a few problems, mostly with the FAT32 of the SD card:
- how to use the directories
- how to append to a file (the "a" of fopen doesn't seem to work, is there a work-around?)
- ability to use metadata with the MP3 file - (I suspect I might have to make a copy and add the meta-data at that time)
- how to switch to a mode where I can mount the SD card as a USB slave, (it works fine for the flash but I want to access the flash only in software upgrade mode)
