  • 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?

  • Hi all,

    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!
