I've search on various sites including this one, but I haven't had any luck matching my specific situation to a fix.

Macbook Pro 13" Retina
Arduino 1.0.5 and 1.5.5 both tested
Board: Arduino FIO with FTDI Breakout Board
Loop-Back Test: Works

the RX button on the FTDI board flashes when I try to do an upload
I had the same problem with the cable, before I switched to the breakout.
I've tried hitting the reset button in various combinations of upload/button mashing.
I tried to burn a bootloader, but got a similar error.
Forgive me if I've left out some details, happy to provide more.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
