Error reading entries

Hello ROOTers,

I have a script which creates a new root file based on another file I already have using just the variables I need. In the original file I have some branches, but I'm using only two of them (particle and shower) and they have different entries. I was reconstructing these branches like this (I attached the whole script if it is easier to understand):

   TClonesArray *particles;

   TClonesArray *shw;

But when I compiled it returned me an error:

Error in <TTree::SetBranchAddress>: The pointer type given (TClonesArray) does not correspond to the class needed (crsIO::TShower) by the branch: shower.  *** Break *** segmentation violation
Root > Function newer46() busy flag cleared

This occurs only for the shower branch. The script works correctly if I comment all the lines pointing to the shower branch. So I changed the way I was recreating the this branch:

   crsIO::TShower *shw = new crsIO::TShower();

After this I had a problem reading the entries:

Error: Can't call TShower::GetEntries() in current scope newer46.C:114: Possible candidates are...
Error: class,struct,union or type TShower not defined  newer46.C:114: *** Interpreter error recovered ***

I tried to fix this including "class TShower":

   class TShower
   crsIO::TShower *shw = new crsIO::TShower();

But I still get a similar error:

Error: Can't call TShower::GetEntries() in current scope newer46.C:115: Possible candidates are...
(in TShower)
*** Interpreter error recovered ***

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Thank you,
