Hi everyone, I'm new to this community and electronics.
I made, following this tutorial (http://itp.nyu.edu/physcomp/Tutorials/ArduinoBreadboard
), a standalone arduino but I'm stuck in the programming part. I've got this module and connector:
My computer (Windows 7) recognizes the serial-usb connector as COM13, so when I make these connections:
VCC(module) - VCC(breadboard)
RX(module) - TX(pin 3 atmega8)
TX(module) - RX(pin 2 atmega8)
GND(module) - GND(breadboard)
And upload a blink sketch with the arduino IDE, it shows up this message: avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0xcc
[Arduino IDE board: Arduino NG, Serial Port: COM13]
How do I upload the code to the arduino breadboard(atmega8 with bootloader)?
