  • I just received 3 of these today for breadboard fun. Had the same issue. First attempts to program sketch failed. Followed your thread, and now I am up and running. If you use the FTDI BOB to program, either properly connect the DTS or manually push the reset button at the right times. The instructions from the forum thread: “The boot loader only looks to see if there is a program to down load for a few seconds after reset. Unless you auto reset the board you have to hold down the manual reset, click upload, wait for the size message to appear, wait two more seconds and then release the reset.”
