I installed a new ATMega328 chip on my Arduino Uno, and I was following the instructions at
for 'Minimal Circuit (eliminating the external clock)' as I don't have a 16MHz crystal. As directed, I'm using Arduino 1.0.1 software and I've saved the 'breadboard' folder from the Breadboard1-0-x.zip into the 'hardware' folder of the sketches directory. However, when I try to burn the bootloader, I get this error message:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
I've tried different ports and different cables, and I've tried adding the serial.Download_rate=9600 into my preferences.txt file just in case, but these things don't seem to help.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
