Topic: Arduino Duemilanove sudden upload problem (Read 984 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi there,

I have had my dumilanove for a few weeks now and i have suddenly started getting an error when trying to upload to the board

I have not added or removed, or changed any settings that im aware of

here is the error code:

    avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x30
    avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51

Also when i push the reset button on the board, the led on pin 13 doesn't light, but it used to.

I have a sad feeling this i to do with the bootloader

my pc spec is below:

Windows 7 64-bit
4gb ram
2ghz 1 mb l2 chache - AMD Athlon II X2 M300

Running arduino 0022

Please could someone help me,

Hi too Dillon14, :)
I'have the same problem and same OS, same Duemilanove, same Arduino IDE version, but maybe just different on CPU.
i've solved this problem just now

try this :
0. Download CDM20814_WHQL_Certified.zip from this page http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm, if fail try from http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htm choose drivers for windows, mine's version 2.08.14, then extract it anywhere you like
1. Plug your duemilanove to USB port,
2. go to Win 7's Control Panel->System->Device Manager, see if there's USB to Serial/ on the "other devices" menu or "COM &LPT Ports"
3. Right Click and choose Update Driver
4. Click on "Browse my computer...."
5. and put your CDM20814_WHQL_Certified.zip extracted folder, as the folder of your driver location, click next and after that...
6. I hope you'll see USB Serial port (COMXXX) XXX here's is where your Duemolanove's USB port
7. Try Open Arduino 022 IDE pick your samples compile it and upload it ....
8. Test it...

the lesson here's maybe the things don't work out very well between your Win 7 and FTDI USB driver and our beloved Duemilanove boards
, so we must reinstall FTDI USB Serial Driver on Win 7 :)

Hope it helps :)
warm greeting from Indonesia
