Hey!

I just got my new lilypad today, however, I can't program it.

I connected the lilypad to the usb mini (v3), and gnd/pin13 with croc strips simply to a led with a resistor.

Now when I plug the whole thing into usb the lilypad blinks a bunch, waits, blinks a bunch, waits, etc.
When I try to program it i only get this output:
Code: Select all
Binary sketch size: 1094 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
I've read the other threads with similar issues and found out lilypads with broken firmware were sent out. Is there a way to find out whether my firmware works? (like..reading the version info or so)

just for completion: rx goes to rx, tx to tx, 5v to 5v and gnd to gnd right now.
i've also tried connecting rx to tx and tx to rx without change.

okay, i figgured it out with the help of the irc people...

i had one of those lilypads with broken firmware, using the isp cable and reflashing the bootloader fixed the problem.

whats this about broken firmware? is this a known issue? i couldnt find any report with a quick google...

ive got issues programming a lilypad with a USBmini as well...

i get a different error however, so maybe a diff problem:

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51

tried pretty much everything. no joy. ive programmed a regular USB Arduino (not lilypad) using this machine before with no issues.

comport install went fine (com7) and all my settings are right (unless there are some secret ones..)

I did a loopback test on the miniUSB board. connected tx to rx, fired up a serial terminal program and its definately working. so the problem is either in the lilypad, or the arduino software...

i posted full details of my setup and errors here: viewtopic.php?t=9931

hoping someone can help.
