Flash help


Struggling to get Audiomoth working (age related?) I am instructed to "download the relevant Flash application" There seems to be a confusing number of options. What is the correct one please?

I also suspect that as I am on Windows 7 I will find a driver is missing, again what is the name of the missing driver and any advice on source would be much appreciated

I am operating on Windows 7 using Firefox as a browser. My intended use is to record nighttime bird migration calls,

Hi there,

Is this an AudioMoth you're setting up for the first time and just wish to use the configuration application to set recording schedules with? The flash application is for altering the on-board code itself. I can help you with either.

Thanks for your interest. Yes, it is a new AudioMoth that I am setting up for the first time. I think I can manage the recording schedules. I assumed I needed to follow the flash application, but maybe I do not. I need to keep life with the AudioMoth as simple as possible

If you're just keeping it simple then you are correct, only the configuration app is required. Flashing is for more complex applications where you wish to implement features yourself.

  • Hi there, could someone please point out where I’m going wrong? I’m trying to edit the default settings of the firmware but I’m rather new to all of this stuff. I have tried editing the variables in the main.c file from AudioMoth-Firmware-Basic, then replacing the main.c file of AudioMoth-Project with it, and then building this entire project using the Simplicity IDE. Then I use the .bin file located within the ‘GNU ARM v4.9.3 Release’ directory to flash the firmware of the device. This however results in the device being bricked and requires me to reinstall the regular firmware. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!
  • Have downloaded apps, the greyed-out areas remain the same, ie. unable to change. When connected to PC solid green light appears.
  • Hi there, can anyone please help me out? I would like to schedule audiomoth to make 5 minutes records every hour during the whole day (thus 24 files per day). However, after twelve hours, only one 5 min file was recorded. I used exactly the same configuration in a second audiomoth device and three five minutes files were recorded. Find in attachments the image of my configuration app. Thanks a lot in advance!
