I just bought an Arduino mini w/ATmega328 and a miniUSB programmer and am having problems loading the blink program on to the Arduino. If I do a verbose upload it appears to hang at "avrdude: ser_open(): setting dtr". I am running version 0022 of the Arduino programmer and I have added the following entry for my board.
mini328.name=Arduino Mini with ATmega328
I have tried on a windows 7 64-bit PC and a windows xp machine. One odd bit of behavior that I notice is that when I reset the LED i have on pin 13 only flashes once. I read that this should flash three times if the bootloader is working so I am thinking I may have somehow got one without a bootloader. Also, when I try to upload to the Arduino the RX LED on the USB module flashes but the TX LED does not. Can anyone confirm my suspicions that the bootloader is gone or have any thoughts on other things that might be wrong?
