Not sure where I ask this question, but here goes. I have an arduino uno and I run the program Blink without any issues.
I setup the Standalone Arduino Circuit ( http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Standalone ) using an ATmega328 with Arduino Optiboot (Uno) and the Sparkfun USB to Serial breakoutboard. I've installed the virtual com drivers for the FT chip, select the Arduino Uno board in Arduino 1.05-r2 software, using the appropriate com port. I receive the error avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
I checked out the forum for similar issues and there was one suggestion of changing the board.
My circuit is solid and I suspect it's a software issue. I don't know what to do next, please help :(
