I have just got my first Arduino Mini Pro, and I can't get the download to work. I am getting the message:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51
I am using Arduino - 0014 software and selecting Board "Arduino Mini". Using Win XP I am using the Serial USB Board. TX of the USB board to RX of the Mini Pro, and RX of the USB to TX of the Mini Pro. On the Mini Pro, vcc and rst to +5v and gnd to ground.
The red led is on and the green led flashes slow, then faster, repeat on the Mini Pro. I push the reset button on the Mini Pro, then download, but get the error every time. Tx on the USB Board flashes a few times, then nothing
Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks
