Another stk500 error

Hello,

I’ve been reading a lot of literature about the “avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00”. I’ve seen that there are many reasons for that. I’ve tried all the fixes, no result. So here it is what I have.

Laptop 64 bits with Windows 7
Arduino 1.0.1 & Arduino 1.0.5 installed

I was able to load scripts in my Arduino Nano 328P. Suddenly it stopped working. So just in case I try to load another sketch in the Arduino Nano, and it fails.

Then I though ‘may be it was a short circuit and now my Nano board is damaged’. But I have another Nano board stored. I just try to lad the blink sketch, same result!

Ok, check the Selected board & COM ports. They seem fine.

May be is the cable. Try a different cable → Same result.

And what if I use a different port in the laptop? → Same result.

I’ve also try to maintain the reset button when loading → Same result

So I don’t know why, but regardless the laptop usb port, the COM port, the correct board in the Arduino 1.0.1 and Arduino 1.0.5, despite of using 2 different cables and 2 Nano boards, I obtain the same error! And if I try with Arduino UNO and FIO, it works. And one week ago I was able (and as far as I remember I haven’t done anything in the laptop)

If maintain shif key pressed when loading the sketch, I obtain:

Tamaño binario del Sketch: 1.084 bytes (de un máximo de 30.720 bytes)
avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device “usb”

And If I verbose the load, this is what I obtain:

avrdude done. Thank you.

What could be the reason? Lately I feel that I’m moving backwards rather than improve my arduino skills. :~ :~ :~

Thanks for your replies.

Try reading the instructions. Posting in the correct forum would be a good start.

Sorry, I thought it was the correct one. I'll do it.
