I am currently trying to upload a program to a LeoStick that has been verified compiled with no problems and I get the following error
avrdude : stk500_getsync() : not in sync : resp= 0x30
I am using Arduino 1.0.1 software to write the sketch and to upload to the LeoStick
Operating system is Windows XP
I have done the following
Download the usbdriver from www.freetronics.com/usbdriver
Inserted the LeoStick into the usb port. The LeoStick was successfully installed and allocated comport 3
Download both LeoStick definitions from www.freetronics.com/leostick
(LeoStick_v1_0 and Leostick_v2_0)
From preferences I got the Sketchbook location and created folder called "hardware". Put LeoStick_v1_0 and Leostick_v2_0 folders into the folder called "hardware"
From taskbar select tools then Serial Port selected com3 from Board selected Freetronics Leostick v2.0
From file selected Upload. The program Verified and compiled with the above error
Then went to Upload using programmer (I dont know difference) The same result
Then I changed the Board to Freetronics Leostick v1.0 same result
Tried pressing reset button on Leostick board and uploading again. Same Result
Check that the comport 3 was not being used by another device. Only Leostick has comport 3 allocated to it.
Went and purchase another stick thinking it maybe faulty but same result
Went and used another computer (Windows 7 operating system) same error result
This computer also allocated com3.
It does seem that the computer is not communicating with the Leostick as the Leds dont seem to change ie(one stays blue and the other flashes red
I presume when the LeoStick device is installed it sets up the serial communication. ie baud rate 9600 etc
I would very much appreciate any suggestions as I have run out of ideas other than setting up a Linux system
Thanks in advance Ian
