I can't upload a thing to Arduino Diecimila

Hello, I have a Diecimila and I can't upload programs to it. I have the software 008; I can upload programs to my Arduino NG but not to the Diecimila. I push the reset button and the upload button on the software on different combinations of speeds but nothing. I have tried with another Diecimila and have the same trouble so it doesn't seam to be a hardware issue. Can anyone tell me what the problem can be?


I think you need Arduino 009; the Diecimila has an auto-reset feature that is only implemented in 009. You won't need to press the reset button once you get 009, as it is automatic.


I am sure you have you set the right usb port in menu tools/serial port/... but just checking... :) Do you get any error messages! or anything..

I also had this problem, but I was running with version 0007 since http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Learning/Linux used to call that the latest version. I fixed that wiki page just now, but I would recommend putting this description in the http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#toc2 (which I can't edit).
