Uploading to a pro-mini?


I had a pro-mini lying around and i figured i could use it for a small project i am working on, however, for some reason i can't get it to upload a new program? I can see the Serial output of the old program in serial monitor so that leads me to believe that i have all the wires hooked up correctly...

what am I missing? I tried pressing the reset button but, no dice... i have VCC, GND, TX and RX connected.


Are you using an FTDI to upload to the mini. If the bootloader was wiped out back when, you will have to upload that first.

Finally try using the ISCP pins to upload things.
