How this module works?
The module only plays music stored in the SD Card in three file formats mp3, wav and wmv. You can simply connect the MP3 module to a computer with a USB cable to access the SD card or preload the music files. Due to the incapability of reading text filenames, the module can only recognize numbers starting from 1. So, as you are loading any files to the SD card, name them with numbers beginning with 1, such as 1.mp3 / 2.mp3 / 3.mp3.
Slide the SD card with stored files into the MP3 module. Connect a speaker or earphone to it. Then try using the mainboard to play music and control its volume or playing mode.
You can program the MP3 module very easily with Codecraft to achieve more creative and challenging projects.
