  • Thanks for the reply, actually it did reprogram despite the error message. As I tried the original firmware I didn't notice that. (I was testing the FTDI adapter.) And yet it gives me an error message each time I click "Upload"...

  • Help, please! Having problems with reprogramming using "FTDI basic". Arduino IDE compiles the code and starts uploading, but fails after a couple of seconds with:

    avrdude: stk500_paged_load(): (a) protocol error, expect=0x10, resp=0x88

    What am I doing wrong? (I have one of the older versions of the kit, but it's Atmega328p as well. I don't remove the battery for reprogramming... should I? )

No public wish lists :(
