Hey there all,
I recently purchased an atmega 328 with the uno bootloader and have been programming it with my arduino uno board but my uno is now being used elsewhere in a different project, so instead I tried connecting my ftdi breakout but everytime I try and upload a sketch it comes up with a sync error:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
So is it possible to program the chip and monitor serial using an ftdi breakout? and if so how, or do I need to burn the duemilanove bootloader?
the ftdi breakout I'm using is the um232r which has the ft232rl chip on it (in case that helps at all)
