  • If anyone is having a problem getting this thing to upload to your board (for me the Uno) (error being that the uP is not responding), the problem is that you NEED an absolute minimum 0.3uF (use a 1uF/10uF/100uF (I tested these)) capacitor wired in SERIES, DTR—>(+Capacitor-)—>RESET ON ARDUINO.

    Remember to hook it in directly between DTR and RESET, do not hook it parallel to ground. The purpose of the capacitor is to delay the reset to allow the uProcessor to finish connecting to the FTDI.

    Also set the programmer to AVRISP mkII and set the board to UNO (if using UNO as a test like I did) Also make sure you have a bootloader on your uProcessor before uploading

    Good Luck
