Hi there, first of all: If this is the wrong forum, please move it, where it belongs to :)...
A few days ago I received some Arduino Pro Mini Clones from China. They've printed "Deek_Robot" on their back. According to this info they should be 5V/16MHz-Versions of the ATmega328.
After I soldered all connectors to the board I wanted to start uploading Sketches with the assistance of my Arduino Mega 2560.
I connected the inputs / output as follows:
| Arduino Mega 2560 | => | Arduino Pro Mini (by Deek_Robot) | | - | - | - | | TX0 | | TX | | RX0 | | RX | | 5V | | VIN | | GND | | GND | | RESET | | RESET |
When I power up my Arduino Mega, the Pro's LED is blinking so I'm assuming the bootloader is correctly burned on the Atmega. I set up my Arduino IDE as follows:
- Board: Arduino Pro or Arduino Pro Mini (5V / 16MHz) /w Atmega328
- Serial Port: /dev/tty.usbmodem1421
When I'm trying to upload a sketch to the arduino mega, I get the following error message:
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
Has anyone an idea how the fix this problem? A already tried to push the Reset-Button on the Mini when the Sketch should be uploaded :(. I'm running out of ideas...
