Seeduino Stalker v328 upload


I am using a stalker v328 and a FTDI Basic Breakout - 5V -

Following this instruction - during upload under Arduino IDE 023 and 1.0 I always get the well known message 500 (programmer not responding).

Any solutions?

Best regards


Which bootloader is on stalker?
Which board did you use in arduino?


I am trying to use the Stalker in the Stand-Alone-Mode, not in Shield-Mode.

Concerning the bootloader I habe no idea. The Modell is labeled as “seeduino stalker v 328 12.18.2009”
