I want to move a project from my Uno to something more permanent.
I have made a breadboard based clone using instructions from this site http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Standalone
Everything works well - I can use my Uno to upload sketches (removing the chip from the uno of course) and sketches run as expected.
However I hit problems using an Arduino USB to Serial board (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/USBSerial) to upload sketches. This is supposed to work exactly like a FTDI cable and has the same pinouts.
When I attempt to upload a sketch the target resets as expected but the upload times out. The error is programmer not responding.
I am using Arduino 1.0 on a Mac.
Any hints would be appreciated!
