I seem to have run into a very frustrating situation. I have had the Arudino for about 2-3 weeks and I work on it every day and I have been learning more and more each day. I have been able to learn and use different shields as well as multiple sensors. However, yesterday, I got a new computer and suddenly my Arduino Mega 2560 Rev 3 can no longer communicate with my new or old computer. I get the following error when I try to upload any code:
avrdude: stk500v2_getsync(): can't communicate with device: resp=0x01
I have looked around the internet at other forums and I have seen people fix this error by installing older drivers or by editing the boards.txt file. However, none of these remedies have worked for me... I have downloaded the 1.5.7 beta arduino folder and tried to use the drivers from that download. I have tried to use the drivers from l.0.5 IDE with no success. Did I miss any other possible solutions? Is there a way I can just download an older driver rather than downloading the entire past IDE folder?
