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!
Good that it got solved!
