Do you have any inisghts into the error message?

...I don't know why your commands are selecting -carduino, because when I burn bootloader or upload using "sketch/Upload Using Programmer" I always get -cstk500v1...

2. FAIL using the Arduino IDE...set Programmer to Arduino as ISP. Uploaded Blink from Sketch/Upload using Programmer. No success...looking at error...programmer set to .carduino (I have a 10Kohm resisitor on the reset pin 1). Programmer Type : Arduino Description : Arduinoavrdude: stk500_getparm(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x14
Kprims - I don´t understand your directions...I had previously burned the target chip with the UNO bootloader via the Gammon sketch. Once I ran the commandliine...I followed this and the Arduino IDE seemed disconnected as detailed above - would you mind clairfying this for me? My head may be twisted ! " At this point you should be able to use the Arduino IDE and just select Arduino as ISP and the correct Port then select burn bootloader. You should get a successful burn. Then without changing anything and using the Blink sketch , Select/ Sketch/Upload using Programmer should load the Blink Sketch and also wipe out the bootloader which would need to be burned again if you want to use the FTDI cable."
