I'm having trouble burning bootloader to my new ATMEGA328-pu chips. I have two arduino UNO I tried http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoISP, this did not work. I even inserted a 124 ohm resistor from 5v to reset and a 10uf cap from reset to ground. Found this on a forum somewhere. my steps. -> select arduino isp sketch in the examples,,, then go to tools -> Programmer -> arduino as ISP then -> tools burn bootloader. AVR dude sync error
then I found these articles:
http://scuola.arduino.cc/it/node/129 http://www.3guys1laser.com/blog-burn-bootloader-blank-atmega328atmega328p-arduino-uno ... This is where I save my sketches:
C:\Users***\Documents\Arduino\optiLoader\optiloader.ino and optiloader.h changed name of the Include Wprogram.h to arduino.h as im using the new arduino IDE 1.0 then I go file->sketchbook-> optiloader. upload it....
i get Binary sketch size: 13018 bytes (of a 30720 byte maximum) avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
Furthermore, when I try upload to arduino the serial rx and tx do flash then all of sudden stop and then with a little bit of a wait then I get the error above.
How do I get around this. What must I look into?
