  • I have just purchased a Pro Min 5V/16Mhz and an FTDI 5V cable from Sparkfun. I have updated the FTDI driver on my Windows 7 computer and loaded the latest V1.0.5 Arduino software. I load the blink program, sent the com port and the board appropriately and download. The green LED on the Pro Min flashs about 4 times, then waits about 4-5 seconds and flashes 1 more time. I then get an error “avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp0x00” in the programmer.

    This is the first time that I have purchased something from Sparkfun. I would have thought purchasing Sparkfun products that they would work.

    Can anyone advise how I can fix this problem.

No public wish lists :(
