I think I partially burnt my 328 from the MintDuino kit. It's still programmed to run the example Blink sketch, but when I swap it into my UNO R3 board it refuses to accept a new program though it still runs the original Blink sketch.
I uploaded the sketch to my good 328 and watched the Rx and Tx LEDs (both Rx and Tx LEDs flash then the D13 LED blinks) and then did the same with the MintDuino 328 (the Rx flashes three times and then the D13 LED does the original Blink sketch)
I changed the sketch to make it blink faster so I could tell if the MintDuino took the new sketch.

will burning the bootloader fix this or do you think I've toasted the Rx/Tx pins on the MintDuino 328?

tia....

Which bootloader did you install on the MintDuino processor?

it was a PRE-installed bootloader from MAKE: I bought it at Radio Shack.

hmmmm, now you got me wondering. let me zip on over to the makershed web site and see what they have.

OK, this is what I found...

Features

    (1) ATmega328P (with Arduino bootloader)


so it is Arduino compatible but I saw some where else in the forums that there's more than one version of the bootloader.

Correct.

How did you upload the Blink sketch?

WinstonP

The Blink sketch was pre-loaded. makeshed wanted you to know that the ATmega was working correctly when you put it together.
