Problems with my boarduino

by stefaniadruga on Thu May 16, 2013 7:43 am

I just assembled a DC boarduino:

green led= ok
red led 3 blinks on reset=ok
jumper in usb position=ok
board duemilanova selected= ok

really hard to connect recommended USB/FTDI cable to it (not same space between pins) but after trying for one hour I managed to connect it and get the green led to light up but I cannot send any sketch, getting this error: avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

Please help, I order 50 kits and I am supposed to do an air quality workshop but connecting it with recommended cable is really hard and doesn't work:(

The 6-pin FTDI header is 0.1" pitch. The connector on the end of the cable should be the same.
Post photos of the front and back of the board - as well as the FTDI cable connector.
