Topic: avrdude error (Read 46 times) previous topic - next topic


I had this problem, and I was just now able to solve it by using a modified method from this thread. I am using a sparkfun FT232R breakout board, and a breadboard arduino tutorial from here. I use the usb breakout board to provide +5v, gnd, TX, and RX. To get the sketch to upload, I plug in the usb cable, hold down the reset button on the arduino, and then release the reset button when the "code compiled" message comes up.

I am using Windows 7.

I'm using an intel Mac and had the rapid flashing pin 13 problem. It started I think because I'm dual boot with windows and rebooted into window while the arduino was plugged in but I don't ever use it on the windows side. When I switched back to Mac later I noticed the Rapid flashing and I couldn't upload a new sketch.

I finally fixed it using the method of holding the reset while I plugged it in, uploading a sketch and letting go of reset right after compiling ended and upload was just starting.

Hope this helps someone some day.

I had this very same problem with my brand new arduino nano v3.0
It turned out that my nano had a 168 chip, not 328, wich i was certain it had. When this was corrected in the IDE, everything works great.
