I tried to use the atmega328p microcontroller on a breadboard with 8 MHz internal clock. I followed the procedure given in the following link:
I tried the last part in the above link for eliminating the external clock. I didn't upload the bootloader since I took the microcontroller from the Arduino Uno board. In the arduino IDE, I chose Tools->Board->Atmega328 on a Breadboard (8 MHz internal clock).
I got this error while trying to upload:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
I checked the connections but couldn't find anything wrong with that.
Please help me with this.
Also, what should be chosen under Tools->Programmer menu?
Thanks in advance.
