Hi, I'm relatively new to electronics, but not to computers or troubleshooting.
I have an Ardweeny, as well as an Ardweeny Multipack. I run Vista-32 and have a CP2102 USB-FTDI connector. It's a B75937, and the manufacturer's website (sadly in Chinese) is here: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.1.28-2539457881.1.DPBQHO&id=9667883527
I installed the drivers, and assume they work fine, as it shows up as COM4, and I shorted the TXD and RXD pins, and a loop-back test worked normally.
When trying to upload a test sketch (blink), it does not work. Error code avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
I had Arduino Uno selected. Manufactuer (www.solarbotics.com
) suggested I select Arduino Duemilanove with ATMega328 for compatibility but it still did not work. Manufacturer suggested I connect RST on B75937 to DTR on Ardweeny. No go. I noticed there was a through-hole connector on the B75937 that says DTR. I soldered a connector to the DTR on the B75937, and connected that DTR to the Ardweeny DTR, and I got some progress. Now, when I go to the "tools" menu, or try to upload a sketch, the LED on the Ardweeny flickers, so I assume things are working correctly now. Yet still, I get the same error code no matter what I do, even though loop-back tests on D0 & D1 work. (I used the procedure I found here: http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,73748.0.html
I am not sure what I'm missing, as there is nothing else I can find on google or these forums that seems to help my problem. Please help.
