I have the following from sparkfun: -Arduino Pro Mini - 5V/16MHz -Breakout Board for FT232RL USB to Serial
To program the arduino, I connected the RX and TX line with 1K limiting resistor. I also removed the jumper and tied VCCIO to 5V. I tied the DTRs together for the reset. When I try to program, I get the following:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51
What is going on?
By the way, when I connected the Arduino Pro Mini through another Arduino (Decilmila) board I had laying around, it programmed fine. So therefore, the problem has to be with the FT232RL. How do I remedy that?
Any help would be awesome. Thanks ahead of time!
