Arduino Pro Mini 5V, 16MHz, ATmega328 "stk_getsync(), resp-0x00"


Whenever I try to upload code to my Pro Mini I always get this message:

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00

I’m using the FTDI TTL-232RQ 5V USB cable to upload. I soldered male pins into the holes so that I don’t have to worry about the contacts coming loose, nothing else is connected to the board, and I followed all the instructions in the guide here under “Uploading Sketches”:

I’ve never used the Pro Mini before, I would appreciate if somebody could help shed some light as to what might be wrong. Thanks.

This board have no auto-reset-on-upload feature, so you have reset it manually right away after IDE writes "Uploading...".
