I have been trying to detect an tag using the PN532 module that I bought from amazon here:


I followed the tutorial here:


I tried using both I2C or SPI, but both results just give me the following when I run nfc-poll:

nfc-poll uses libnfc 1.7.1
NFC reader: pn532_spi:/dev/spidev0.0 opened
NFC device will poll during 30000 ms (20 pollings of 300 ms for 5 modulations)
nfc_initiator_poll_target: Success

It seems like the PN532 is connected to the Pi properly, but the tag is not being detected or printing any info. I am beginning to wonder if the problem is with the PN352 device itself. Maybe I got a faulty one?
