Not sure whether to put this in hardware or software section. Plumped for here, move it if another place is more sensible.
Have been trying to upload to a diecimila without pressing the upload button and its not working. The diecimila is one of the prototypte ones that massimo gave out at the london h3.
If the arduino is sending serial when I try to upload I get
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x06 avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x06
So I replaced the running code with the blinking led example patch and get
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
It works fine if I press the reset button on the board and upload
