and have successfully used it to write the boot loader to the blanks
So now if I try to use my FTDI cable on a 328 with the optiboot boot loader.. I get errors in the IDE where it cannot communicate with the chip.. I know people are doing it with the new boot loader, and I am just missing something small.. can I get a few pointers?.. I read a couple of posts on here about the issue, but it hasn't gotten me very far at the moment.
Arduino IDE.. I don't have a lot of experience with avrdude.. should probably move that way, but the arduino IDE has kept it simple, so I would like to stay with it if I can for the moment.Yes, I do have the UNO selected when I try to upload the sketch with the FTDI cable. No luck
