  • For a breadboard arduino, connect DTR from the FTDI basic to a 100nF capacitor to Reset. Also, connect a 10k resistor from reset on arduino to +5V

  • I know this post is old, but for anyone else like myself reading these for help, this will hopefully shed some light. I had the exact same problem with my arduino, the not in sync error. After a lot of trial and error, mostly error and some research, i got it to work with a breadboard arduino! Tested this on arduino uno bootloader on an atmega 328 DIP and a lilypad bootloader with atmega 168 DIP. Pins are the same for these two, I have no idea for others. Connect like thise: FTDI Basic…………Arduino DTR………………….100nF capacitor (should say 104 on it)–>Reset (pin 1) ALSO, connect a 10kohm resistor from pin 1
    on ardruino to 5V, this part is what had me messed up for so long. RXI……………………TXD (pin 3) TX0…………………..RXD (pin 2) 5V…………………….5V power rail or whatever you are using CTS………………….GND, I don’t know why, but mine is working like this so I leave it alone! GND………………….GND Good luck!

No public wish lists :(
