I know this is old... but which adapter did you get? Did you have any problems with Error1?
I have the m42-EOS adapter (no electrical contacts) on a Zenitar 16mm and I can't figure out how to not get an Err1 when using it...
I also got error 1. Take a look in your camera body, at about 10 o'clock there is a tiny pin that sticks out, just underneath the bayonet mount. It's spring loaded and moves maybe 5mm back and forth. Let me know if you need me to take a picture of it for you.
For some reason, when it is pushed up, the camera gets an error 1 code, you can even just do this with your finger and the shutter won't fire. What I did was to grind away the part of the adapter that was pushing on this pin. Now it works fine.
Hope that helps.
