New AUDRINO R3 trouble shooting

Hi,

I brought the new AUDRINO UNO 3 today...made the configurations..and the setup..but i am not able to load the blink program...:( However the ON LED and LED near 13 port is blinking...but the communication b/w the board and my laptop is not made.

The error it says is.

avrdude: stk500_getsync() : not in sync: resp=0x00..

i have set the

Board == Aurdino Duemilanove w/ATmega328

Programmer == AVR ISP.....

Please let me know if you are aware of such issues.. This was my first board.. and i am... :~

Board == Arduino Uno

Programmer == Arduino as ISP

Also, make sure you're using the right COM port.

And you're done.

Good luck

Thnk You.. for the prompt reponse..

I have made changes as suggested.. however same result..I am currently using COM4.. I think it is the correct port.. I checked the same.. by disconnecting the board.. and the port dissapears from the port selection. i hope i am correct in this aspect..

but i am yet to crack the crux ! !

Make sure you're using the right COM Port and your drivers are correctly installed.

cowboy432: I am currently using COM4.. I think it is the correct port.. I checked the same.. by disconnecting the board.. and the port dissapears from the port selection. i hope i am correct in this aspect..

sometimes my IDE can not communicate, so I must to do this:

disable COM4 enable COM4

then IDE can communicate with board

I have seen the same in the device manager .. and its using the same port 4.. and updated the driver software as well..

I do not see the option to disable/enable the port back..

where exactly are these options available from IDE...Please forgive my me if my questions are basic.. i have just started to Arduino..
