You know what really helps? SELECTING THE RIGHT BOARD FROM THE IDE. facepalm Sorry about the n00b mistake. For what it’s worth, I am now able to program my 5v arduion pro without any additional caps or resistors, just plugged it straight into the breakout. whaddya know?
Thanks for the idea. Can you please tell me specifically what you connected the ends of the 100nF cap to? From DTR to…..? Thanks in advance!
EDIT: I’m trying to use this FTDI breakout to program a 5V Arduino pro. I tried putting a 100nF cap in series in between the DTR pin on the breakout and the RST pin on the pro (Which I think is what you guys meant?), but still no luck. Getting the same “not in sync” error. I also added two 1k resistors from TX and RX and pulled them up to the 5V pin…no luck.
Any help would be great. Thanks!
