Having problems with uploading firmware to my Rainbowduino.
Using v3.0 so connected to my PC via USB.
From board i have selected : “Arduino Duemilanove w/ ATmega328”
however i have tried pretty much all of them ending in ATmega328.
From Port i have COM4 selected, I’m sure this is the correct Port as when i unplug the USB this option disappears.
When i click upload i get the following:
“Binary sketch size: 4134 bytes (of a 30720 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00”
The Rainbowduino itself has a green led which lights up when plugged it.
Upon upload there are 3 red LEDS next to the reset switch, 1 marked “RST” flashes 3 times very fast, followed by the LED marked “RX” flashing 3 times a bit slower.
The code I’m trying to upload is the example “PlasmaMatrix”.
- Can you upload firmware to the rainbowduino regardless of a matrix being plugged in?
- What position should the switch on the board be in? I think its marked one side USB and the other HOST, my guess is that one is to take commands from the PC and one is stand alone board?
- What am i doing wrong?
Additional notes: I’m using a custom 8x8 led matrix ive put together. Could this be an issue at this stage, if not can we ignore this for now and just get examples uploaded first.
