Re: Copy music from windows desktop to RPi via network help.

Re: error?

the only "time" is literally "import time" and the sleep times

but

Code: Select all

import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
import time
is exactly as it is on the website: http://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2012/0 ... omment-485

so i dont see how to "define" it
