I bet you're a real pogonotomist then 8)

Isn't there a link we can send folks to for all the things they can try based on having Windows, MAC, Linux, etc. when

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51

comes up? Seems to crop up here a lot.

Well the post at the start of this section says:-

http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload has lots of information and suggestions for getting your Arduino software and hardware. Please read it over before posting here.

But it looks like few people pay attention to that.

Got it guys!!..it was the wrong COM port that was the problem.jus changed the COM port 3,8,1 and one of them seemed to end the problem.

lol @ THE BEARD GUY N POGOTOMIST WHO??
