I have been successfully learning to use an Aruduino diecimila on a borrowed Window XP laptop.
Needing to return it, I have been trying to get the same board to work on my desktop.
I downloaded the program, plugged in the board, and tried running the "blink program" to test that all was working.
I get the following message: Problem uploading to board. See www.arduino
..../troubleshooting#upload for help.
Below that is:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x0
avrdud: stk500_disable(): proocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51
Can someone please explain this.
Note: I did everything I could think of fromt he troublesooting guide under upload.
The green light is on. I plugged in an LED in digital 13 and it blinked once etc.
Also under "tools" the serial port is listed as COM1 (but on the laptop along list of COM ports were shown and I had to find the right on. here I am only given the one).
I have a custombuilt, Pentium 4, with OS Windows XP professional
