I am still receiving the same error code:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
Obviously I have the FTDI Friend plugged into the clock, I've checked and rechecked the instructions on how to assemble the clock just to make sure I didn't solder the TTL heads in the wrong place. I've installed and reinstalled the driver software for the FTDI Friend.. making sure that it is on COM4.
I notice that when I go to the Serial Monitor in Arduino 1.0.3 I don't get any reply echos from the FTDI Friend.
Right now I'm just starting to wonder which of my devices is broken. There are some LED lights on the FTDI Friend that I don't understand.
It is late at night and I'm about to miss class in the morning if I don't go to bed. Any help is appreciated.
