There is a huge variety of shields that are available which can be stacked on top of an Arduino. Often there are more than one manufacturer for a single type of shield itself. In a way this is good, because as a user you are going to have multiple options. But it becomes a problem when the shield is pretty complex (like the USB Host Shield) and you have to use a library and the shields are not compatible with each other. One such shield which has many incompatible versions is USB Host Shield and in this post I am going to tell you how you can select the proper shield and also the changes that you have to do to make even the incompatible shields work with the library.
