It would be real helpful if you showed us the program code that you are using now, so we can help you to correct it.

Two other things ocurred to me as I was waiting for your response. However, as regards that response, please also mention what the actual problem is - "it not work" doesn't tell us much http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I trust you are aware that there are only 2 permissable sets of pin ports that can be used to access I2C devices with the BS2p series of PBASIC Stamps. You may either:

Specify 0 in the first parameter and then use pins 0 and 1 (SDA, SCL)

OR

Specify 8 in the first parameter and then use pins 8 and 9 (SDA, SCL)

and no others. Additionally whichever pair of pins you use, each will need to have a 4.7K pull-up resistor on it (SDA and SCL).
