I have a Freeduino USB 1.1 board with atmega 8l-8pu microcontroller on it. When I try to upload program, it shows error:
avrdude stk500_getsync() not in sync: resp 0x00
I have tried reset and the red led blinks which I think suggest bootloader is working fine.
On Arduino IDE, I have set Arduino Uno and correct port which is shown in device manager.
One weird problem that I noticed is that no matter which USB port I connect to, it says COM9 on device manager. Is that something to look into?
