I have purchased a clone of pro mini, from here:http://www.watterott.com/de/Wattuino-pro-mini-5V-16MHz
I also use the SF FTDI Breakout V1.1, which should work fine with it.
However, I have not been able to upload anything to the board. I am using Win7x64, and a USB cable of which I am sure that it is working.
I also have selected the right COM port. I tried uploading using different settings in the Boards-menu. (i.e. duemilanove)
I tried different baudrates, which I changed over the boards.txt file.
I have pushed the reset-button before and while uploading, neither worked.
I did the serial-communication-test, seems good.
Nothing works, I always get the same error:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
I have uploaded a short video of what happens when I try to upload. First, I plug in the USB-cable and the board and breakout do some blinking. I then click on upload (this is where I move in the video) and the board seems to get resetted successfully, then the breakout RX and TX diodes blink, then nothing.http://www.youtube.com/embed/S8bwSih4Z-c
What is wrong with that thing??
