How to program to communicate between FTDI & Arduino?

I want to read the serial data transmitted by arduino on my computer using FTDI API (Visual C++).

Arduino uses Serial.print or Serial.write to send data to it's serial port. I am trying to capture this transmitted data on my computer using FTDI API. Note: I have connected my Arduino to my computer using the FTDI breakout (from SparkFun).

Please see the following tutorial: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/system/ftdi-chip.aspx

It worked until establishing connection to FTDI. But somehow I am getting reading error. My Arduino is using Serial.print to print 0..1.. ... ... 9 every 300ms. Meaning it prints 1 then after 300ms prints 2 and so on.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Why are you using the FTDI API?

Your FTDI breakout from sparkfun will show up as a serial port on your computer.
You can use ordinary serial communication to talk to it.

I am trying to understand how arduino read/write or communicate to the ATmega chip. I'm building a custom MCU board. I will use the same technique there.
