In the original post you say
I have tested the Mini Pro by messing around with the basic pin 13 blink program which does upload and seems to work fine. What am I missing? What other information can I provide that may help?
Is that still the case? Could it be you just forgot to select the correct processor in the tools menu when you switched over from a UNO?
No I made a mistake and did not change the variables enough. The light flashed on the MiniPro like it was trying to accept a new upload and went back to flashing. I fooled myself into thinking it was fast slow fast slow. As far as I know I have the right tool selections. Mini Pro 5V, mega 328P.
Here is the board configuration I have on my mini. I am not sure at all now what should be connected to what. I am looking for any spec sheets I can for it but so far have not found any specific to this clone board.
