Title: Noob question
Post by: windjammer on Feb 01, 2011, 11:26 pm
I just got the Arduino Duemilanove and I'm trying to upload code to it. 

I'm running Win XP and the only serial port I can select is "COM 3"

When I hook up the Arduino via USB to the computer and select "Upload to I/O Board" I get an error...

Problem uploading to board.

Binary sketch size: 4716 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x30
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51

Any ideas?  Does COM 3 mean USB?

Thanks in advance!

If you disconnect the Arduino is COM3 still available?

I didn't realize that I needed to install drivers.  Now it works!

Thanks!
