Following the "getting started" guide for the micro went smooth, everything seemed normal until I was asked to upload the modified Blink example, then it simply timed out and never finished uploading - Then this error pops up.
What could cause this?
I'm not sure if your problem is directly related to the first post. I'm having this same problem with Arduino 1.0.1 and some older Pro Micro. I'm guessing the older Pro Micro's with the older bootloaders (before June 19 2012) aren't compatible with the new Pro Micro Addon zip (that gets extracted to the Arduino/hardware folder). For now I can still upload sketches to my Pro Micro's using Arduino 1.0. Hopefully a fix for 1.0.1 comes out soon.
When trying to upload using 1.0.1 (having extracted the Addon zip, restarted Arduino IDE and selecting the Sparkfun Pro Micro 5V/16MHz) I get these errors after the Rx and Tx LED's flash for a while...
