I am totally new to the Arduino IDE / Arduino. I can not seem to get my communications set up properly.
My board is an Arduino PRO.
I have two different USBASP programmers. One generic and one V2.0 LC Technology. The drivers are libusbK USB Devices / USBasp
I also have a FTDI Programmer. The driver is FTDI 8/16/2017 2..12.28.0 on COM6
When I try to communicate using the FTDI programmer I have used the Serial Monitor on COM6 to run the Loop Back Test This works fine. I am able to send and receive characters. For this I am setup as follows: Board: "Arduino Pro or Pro Mini" Processor: "ATmega 328 (5V, 16Mhz)" Port: "COM 6" Programmer: "USBasp"
When I try to "Upload Using Programmer" I receive "Not able to upload I am using the simple "Blink" sketch and it does compile properly. IDE also reports "Could not find USB device with vid=0x16c0 pid= 0x5dc product = USBasp
When I try to run a loopback test using either of the USBASP devices it does not work. IDE reports "Board is not available" Port option is grayed out. I also can not upload using either of these.
I would ultimately like to use either of the USBASP devices to upload. I don't seem to be able to get the right setup options to use any of these?
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
