Arduino Nano - programmer is not responding

For me the problem was the selected "processor" type. I had to change it to 328p (old bootloader). Also, raise the IDE's verbosity, in order to have a nice progress bar when loading the sketch. My ...

Relationship between avrdude's "programmer" and bootloaders

If you are using the bootloader, you are not using a programmer. The programmer, when used, is connected to the ICSP pins on the Arduino. The bootloader however expects a well-defined sequence of data ...

How to use Arduino Pro Mini without Programmer

You might be on the wrong track. You do need a crystal (or not, it depends on), and an Atmel programmer if you want to program an empty chip. However, all Arduino boards come with a chip pre-...
