 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I have the Iteaduino 2.2 board and I too am getting nothing but grief when I try to upload a sketch. I get the "avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync resp=0x00" error. Does this board need a different driver than a real Arduino? I forced the installation of the Arduino driver from the 1.0.4 package and my Windows XP system wouldn't take it. The best I can do is install it as a USB serial port. I have the Arduino UNO selected as the board and the USB Serial POrt (COM16) as my port, but it is still no go. I tried disconnecting everything from the board except for the USB cable and tried reset a few times.

This is my first venture into the Arduino world. I am trying to use it at work with a new robot project and not getting past the driver stage is very frustrating. I know this error is covered in another thread, but I couldn't find it and I'm sure that it was not dealing with the same board.

If anyone has this board and can help me out, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks.

Do you have a link to the board?

Do you have FTDI drivers installed?

The board is at http://imall.iteadstudio.com/development-platform/arduino/arduino-compatible-mainboard/im120411008.html.

I changed the board selection from Arduino UNO to Arduino Duemilinove w/ATmege 328 and it now seems to work okay. Being new to Arduino, I don't know the differences bewtween the boards and I was hoping to stick to one platform. I have a real Arduino UNO at home. Does this mean that I might not be able to run the same projects on both boards?

I will try the driver you suggested just for kicks.

The 328 doesn't care how the USB/Serial conversion is done.
The 328 code will compile the same whether you select Duemilnove or Uno, the only difference is the baud rate the IDE & bootloader use to upload the code.

I took my Iteaduino board to another WIN 7 (32 bit) computer and cannot get it to connect properly. I tried the latest FTDI driver (2.8.28.0 I think) and it didn't work. On my other PC, where it works, I am using FTDI 2.8.14.0, so I found that on the Internet and installed it. Still no success uploading sketches on this PC. I'm beginning to think that I should just stick with the real Arduino boards. Any ideas?  smiley-cry

This is the driver I'm trying to use.

On the same PC, I easily installed the driver for a real Arduino UNO and have it up and running.
