Unable to Upload Program to Arduino Uno

Just and FYI, if anyone is getting this error message:

" avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00 "

Unplugging the Rx (Port 0/Rx and Port 1/Tx) in the Digital bank fixed my problem.

Hy i am new here. I have the same problem, but i cannot understand the reply resp. i have no plugs in the Rx

but i cannot understand the reply resp

Perhaps he was to hurry to get a decent post :(
