I've spent far too long trying to upload a sketch to my rainbowduinow without success so hoping someone can help me.

I've tried using an arduino UNO and a usb>serial ttl cable to connect but both produce the same result:

Code: [Select]

Binary sketch size: 7488 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

I've tried swapping round the rx/tx connections and triple checked the correct ports and board are selected in the arduino IDE but no matter what, I can't get anything to upload.

I have no issues at all uploading sketched to my arduino UNO via USB.

Any ideas?  =(

Have you read "Use Arduino to Upload firmware" on the product page's link:  http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/index.php?title=Rainbowduino_LED_driver_platform_-_Atmega_328#Resources

nope, didn't come across that page when googling but it looks very useful - cheers :)

managed to solve my problem in the end - the rainbowduino has a 328 not 168 chip on it which I didn't realise, so once I'd selected the correct board for that all worked fine. doh!
