hi , I have one Chinese clone Pro Mini from "NanHe", and I have a hard time getting it to work with the IDE. Most of the time, uploading sketch results in avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
which means it is not communicating with the serial correctly. I did manage to program it once the blink program, but I am not sure how I did that as 99.99% of the time uploading will fail.
Anyone has any experience with this particular pro mini clone can help ? I am using a FTDI board as the programmer. I have also tried using Uno as an ISP to program it , but still fails. thanks
I have also tried pressing reset just before upload happens many times, but it will never upload the sketch.
