avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding using Lilypad

Hi,

I am on a Macbook Pro OS 10.5.8, updated to latest version of Java, LilyPad Mainboard 328, FTDI Basic Breakout board, using Arduino 0022 on serial port dev/tty.usbserialA-800cr8i

I can load the blink sketch and then when I upload the blink without delay sketch following or change the timing parameter blink sketch and try to upload, I get the following message.

I looked at the following threads to solve this issues as these people had the same problem, but not clear if the problem was solved.

I have swapped out USB mini cable cable and the breakout board and the lilypad ( I have two of each), double checked the FDTI drivers making sure they are the latest ones, held down the reset button (even though I should not have to). I feel like it is something simple that I am not checking.

txt rxt blinks red when holding down reset on upload.

The green LED on the Lilypad blinks.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I am having the same problem. I have tried troubleshooting many times and I still have the same core issue. After going through two Lily Pads I have been able to upload the blink program once and then I haven't been able to upload any other programs or even the same program again. I have tried using the reset button while uploading and it hasn't worked either. After scouring the internet I still haven't found a solution. Any help would be great!

Get an usbtiny. It works with the IDE, it is cheap, it does not require the presence of a bootloader, after correct setup it just works. Always.

Don't buy any of these: 'LilyPad Arduino Simple Board'. If the bootloader dies, you can throw it away or desolder the chip.
