I purchased 2 Arduino Uno Ethernet boards last week and have now just started to fuss with them.
Using a FTDI cable, I cannot upload any code (tried the Blink example). It returns:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
when holding down Shift and uploading, it returns:
avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"
While I am not a complete noOb to Arduino. The correct board, and USB port is selected. (Arduino Uno as per instructions on adafruit.com, also tried Arduino Ethernet, both fail).
So, I then tested my FTDI cable, just to make sure. (http://www.ladyada.net/wiki/ftditest
After asking around in ##arduino on freenode, and using google, It turns out the bootloader is sometimes funky on these ones, and I found this site:http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoISP
I tried that. It didn't work.
I then found:http://scuola.arduino.cc/en/content/upg ... st-version
- I wired up a Uno to the Ethernet Uno per the instructions.
- I downloaded the bootloader, and loaded it into Arduino IDE 1.0.3.
- Flashed to Uno
- Loaded up Serial @ 19200.
I tried using command (win7 box), to use AVRDUDE in the last setting of that tutorial... and it still won't communicate.
I'm not sure where/what to try next. Any help would be appreciated, as my prototype is ready for testing! (http://imgur.com/whfRe
