a. Include the code that you had to insert to do this in your lab writeup.

 

The SD card didn’t work, I don’t have a datalog.txt file.

 

b. Explain what would you do differently (or show us your code!) to insert the same text string, but at the beginning of the file (without over-writing the current contents).

 

The SD card didn’t work, I don’t have a datalog.txt file. I made my own SD adapter though. I learned how to buy parts, and solder headers to the card.
