Arduino: 1.8.5 (Windows 7), Board: "LilyPad Arduino, ATmega328P" not recognized

Excuse me being a noob.

I purchased a Velleman Arduino UNO, installed Arduino software. latest version.
I'm using Windows 7 64 bit,

Arduino software boots up.

Device was recognized and I was able to create a few sketches and run them.

I recently purchased a LilyPad Arduino, ATmega328P off ebay.
I selected: LilypadArduino

Arduino software just doesn't seem to work with it.

BN: Unknown board
VID: 0403
PID: 6001
SN: Upload any sketch to obtain it

Tried uploading a simple LED sketch, it just doesn't work.....Perhaps ebay might have incompatible
LilyPad Arduino, ATmega328P? Should I just buy one from here or Sparkfun or something?

Don’t worry about that. That is expected and correct for that board. The Arduino IDE is only able to identify certain boards that use a custom USB chip or use native USB. Your board uses the generic FTDI FT232 USB TTL serial adapter chip so there is no way the Arduino IDE can identify which board it is.

Please do this:

  • File > Preferences > Show verbose output during: > compilation (uncheck) > upload (check) > OK
  • Sketch > Upload
  • After the upload fails you’ll see a button on the right side of the orange bar “Copy error messages”. Click that button.
  • Paste the error messages in a reply here USING CODE TAGS (</> button on the toolbar).

Sketch uses 1,030 bytes (3%) of program storage space. Maximum is 30,720 bytes.

Global variables use 9 bytes (0%) of dynamic memory, leaving 2,039 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2,048 bytes.

  This report would have more information with
  "Show verbose output during compilation"
  enabled in File > Preferences.

additional info here…

This was the default setting…Not sure if it should be changed

The Tools > Programmer menu selection doesn’t matter. That is only used for the Tools > Burn Bootloader and Sketch > Upload Using Programmer processes. For a regular Upload the programmer selection is ignored.

I had both devices in the computer USB ports But only the Uno was recognized by the program.

As I explained previously, this is the expected behavior and doesn’t indicate a problem.

In your screenshot you have Tools > Ports > COM4 selected but the output from your upload shows COM1:

blueant:

         Using Port                    : COM1

COM1 is usually not the correct port, so you should try the upload with Tools > Port > COM4. You can find which is the port of the Lilypad by checking which port appears/disappears after plugging/unplugging the board to your computer. Note that you need to reopen the Tools > Port menu to refresh it.

O.K..I got a handle on ports now. Thanks for your help.

I abandoned the FTDI cable and followed Bays' Instructables page about a
UNO board alternative to downloading sketches into Lilypad.

It working great now !
