Hi , I'm trying to upload a code to an Atmega328 with the Uno bootloader on a breadboard using an FTDI USB to serial adapter but i keep getting this error "avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00" I wired up an LED to the RX pin of the microcontroller and I noticed that the TX LED of the USB serial adapter blinks when I upload the code but the Rx LED of the Atmega doesn't. I used these components in the circuit : 1 power indicator LED. 1 LED hooked to PIN 13 (Standard Blink code) 1 LED hooked to RX pin 2 22 pF and a 16Mhz crystal occilator 1 0.1 uF capacitor hooked to the DTR pin and pin 1 of the atmega 10K resistor hooked to the DTR pin and to +5V I got this USB to serial adapter: ftp://imall.iteadstudio.com/Modules/IM120525005_Foca/DS_IM120525005_Foca.pdf
http://imall.iteadstudio.com/im120525005.html I followed this Tutorial : http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-The-Easiest-Breadboard-Arduino-UnoE/step3/Section-3-Uploading-Sketches-with-3-Different-USB-/
Hope you guys help me as soon as possible.
