Hi, I am new to this and just installed Arduino on my MacBook. I started going through the tutorials and when trying to upload I get the following message:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x86
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
I read through the troubleshooting section a few times and have tried different things, but cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.
Anyone have any ideas?
I am using an Arduino Uno connected with a USB and so I have those selected when I have the software open.
here is where I admit I don't know what IDE means.
Yes, I selected the correct board and port. The power light is on and the LED is blinking.
It just won't upload the program. I tried to change the time in the "blink" program, thinking maybe messing around with the delay between blinks might work, and it did not. I just keep getting that same message.
as an aside, your icon is awesome. I knew if anyone could help me, it would be Batman.
2 new ports popped up. I tried both. Still not working. I appreciate your trying to help me figure it out.
Ok, I will totally give that a try. Thank you again!
