i am not exactly new to the forum, but it's my first post since i got helped by reading so far and couldn't contribute anything helpful yet. But "hi" anyway. :-) Now i got a question that was asked often. It was even answered often but none of the provided solutions could fix my problem.
I like to build a truly minimal configuration to remotely trigger the power button of a mac pro. (Apple has removed power on LAN and everything to boot up the MacPro externally) I tested everything with a Duemilenove and the Ethernetshield and it works nicely. Now i want to minimize the setup so that it can all be mounted in a little device to be fixed at the macpros front.
Now here comes really what my problem is: The Tutorial: http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard doesn't work for me. I ordered some more ATMEGA328p (just like the one on my board) and put them on the breadboard. I connected everything just like in the tutorial (check the image below) but when i try to burn the bootloader all i got in the console is:
Error while burning the bootloader: avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0xf0 avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0xf8
I tried everything that people came up with in different threads but can't come around this problem. Maybe someone got another idea how to solve this.
I am running OSX 10.6 if that is of any interest.
Thank you so far.
