I have always been a supporter of arduino.cc and have always used the IDE from arduino.cc, but I was unable to upload the blink sketch to the boards that came from arduino.org. I kept on getting the error below whenever I tried to upload the sketch.
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
In order to fix the problem, I had to reflash the bootloader on the arduino, and ever since then the uno’s have been working fine.
So I was wondering if anyone else experience this as it looks like arduino.org might intentionally be making the bootloader on their boards incompatible with the arduino.cc IDE…
