I can't get my Arduino Pro Mini clone to sync with the FTDI FT232RL clone. I wonder If I do anything fundamentally wrong.
I use Windows Xp
Programming UNO R3 is no problem
The FTDI seemed to have installed well on Xp
I didn't change anything on the Xp settings
The IDE is set correctly to the Pro Mini 5V 328 version
No other things set in the IDE
Pins names are on FTD / Pro Mini
|FTDI||Ardu Pro Mini|
This connection is obvious:
VCC >> VCC
TX >> RX
RX >> TX
I also do:
GND >> GND
DTR >> GRN
CTS I either leave open or put on GND. I tried also switching RX and TX.
Do I do something fundamentally wrong or is there a possibility that something is defect?==========================
There was a way to test the FTDI USB adapter via the IDEs serial monitor, but can't it. What to do that?
