I have an Arduino brand Nano. I uploaded the blink sketch to test it out and it worked.
But now I am unable to upload anything else, even other example sketches from the IDE.
The "uploading..." takes forever and I eventually get the error:
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 10 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x9d
Other solutions suggest using the old bootloader, which does not work for me.
The blink sketch is still working on the board, I can see it blinking away, mocking me, when it is plugged in.
I've also tried other USB cables.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
