Hi all, bought the above arduino off of ebay. Complete beginner to all of this so I started with a guide which suggested the first thing AFTER installing all the drivers was to try the blinker test in the examples. Selected the one and only com port under the serial port options and for the board option I chose the 3rd option with ends "w/ ATmega 168" as my main labled chip is "ATmega168-20PU"
I clicked upload and after about 15 seconds got the error:
"Binary sketch size: 1018 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51"
I've tried many suggestions, one being hold the reset button for a couple of seconds as I click upload and many different variations of this. I noticed the led closest to the power socket flashes 3 times after releasing the upload button, but I always recieve the above error.
I've literally only got this device today and I'm using it with the pictured stuff, arduino 0022 on Windows 7 32bit and have installed and reinstalled the FTDI drivers multiple times and they appear to be installed correctly.
If you need any more info just ask
Please help this poor noob out!
