I uploaded my sketch like normal, but this time when it restarted the DEBUG LED started to blink rapidly -- even though my sketch has nothing to do with Digital #13.
I tried to go through the troubleshooting upload guide that the IDE recommended. Everything checks out fine. I even tried uploading the Example sketches, but nothing works. The RX LED flashes about 4 times, and then stops. When I try uploading the Blink sketch, for example, I get the following output:
Binary sketch size: 1414 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
The Arduino is connected directly to a USB port on my iMac. If it helps, I'm running an Early-2008 2.8GHz iMac w/ 2GB RAM, 320GB HDD and OS X Leopard 10.5.6. I also tried reinstalling the FDTI Drivers included in the Arduino install. I tried using v12 and v14 of the IDE, but both have the same outcome. I also tried using different board options as recommended in other threads. All give same results. I tried various delays between pressing upload and connecting the board, or resetting and pressing upload, but nada.
Is my ATMega168 totally dead, or is there a way to revive it?
