avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
window title 'com.atmel.flip.IspException' content 'could not open USB device'
Second: Does this sound like a legitimate case for seeking a refund from the retailer? (it was RS-online)
and then windows detects and installs it as a Arduino Uno, but I still get the same ' avrdude' error when trying to load a sketch
avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"
Isn't it what I did when I loaded the 'ArduinoISP' sketch onto my new board, wired it to my old board, then set use 'Arduino as ISP' as the programmer in the ArduinoIDE and clicked install bootloader?
edit: For the sake of completeness I attempted to load the bootloader over usb from the IDE but I received this errorQuoteavrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"
Yeah, that shouldn't have done anything since you can't program the bootloader without a programmer.
The loopback test works fine, I get back in the window everything I type in the text field
The only other thing I can add is that when I attempt to upload a sketch, the pin13 led flashes a few times and goes straight back to solid,
