key points that may be issue. I suspect you have multiple problems:

1) You need to ensure you are only using ONE of the SdCards, between the SFEMP3 shield and the EtherNet Shield.

2) The EtherNet Shield does not support Interrupts. and in fact is broken when they are enabled. Note the following in the webplayer.ino example:

 * \warning
* Need to set the following in the SFEMP3ShieldConfig.h, in order to work.
* \code #define USE_MP3_REFILL_MEANS USE_MP3_Polled \endcode
* as the Ethernet library makes interrupts not possible.

along with the following in the loop()

void loop()



3) not sure what type of packet or how you are sending a packet that starts with “1”. most packets such as Telnet have a header. You may be able to get a way with NetCat.

4) requires the socket connection to be broken between the sending of commands, as to clear the buffer, as not to simply append forever.
