Surely someone has out there has done this successfully. I've done a lot of searching, but cannot find a solution.
OS: OS X 10.5.8 Board: Arduino FIO 3.0 (Sparkfun) Arduio environment: 0018 FTDI cable: brand new from Adafruit
This is my first try with the FIO. When I connect the cable, the LED blinks once per second, so the FIO is apparently getting power.
I'm trying to upload a sketch that works on my "regular" Arduinos. But, for whatever reason, I can't get the upload with the FTDI cable to work. Usually I get these messages:
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x00
Sometimes I just get the "not responding" message twice.
I've chosen Arduino FIO from the board menu (which appeared after I added a hardware/fio/boards.txt file to my Arduino directory). And the correct /dev/tty.usbserial-xxxxxxxx has been chosen from the port menu.
If you need more info, please ask. Any help would be much appreciated.
