Each board is different. We don't sell or support the freeduino. You should check with where you bought it for technical support.

The Freeduino appears to use a different usb/serial chip than the Arduino Uno. You might be able to find more information about it at http://www.freeduino.org

We do have many distributers around the world. http://www.adafruit.com/distributors/
And if you order direct from us, we can ship most anywhere also.

Also make sure you installed the drivers.

If you have windows follow these steps
I realize you're using a freeduino, and that your discs had the drivers but it's possible they may be on the chip as well. Anything is worth a try :)
(FORM ARDUINO.CC)


Plug in your board and wait for Windows to begin it's driver installation process. After a few moments, the process will fail, despite its best efforts
Click on the Start Menu, and open up the Control Panel.
While in the Control Panel, navigate to System and Security. Next, click on System. Once the System window is up, open the Device Manager.
Look under Ports (COM & LPT). You should see an open port named "Arduino UNO (COMxx)"
Right click on the "Arduino UNO (COmxx)" port and choose the "Update Driver Software" option.
Next, choose the "Browse my computer for Driver software" option.
Finally, navigate to and select the Uno's driver file, named "ArduinoUNO.inf", located in the "Drivers" folder of the Arduino Software download (not the "FTDI USB Drivers" sub-directory).
Windows will finish up the driver installation from there.


^If the part in red fails to find the driver I actually just backed up from the FTDI USB and instead clicked on JUST the DRIVERS folder. For some reason it found them when backing up one folder but it wouldn't load when going all the way into FTDI. hope this helps.

I have the same problem. I have an Arduino Uno R3, installed the software, updated the driver on my laptop with a windows 7 64 bit and another computer with windows xp. On both I tried to update the blink program and always had the error message:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00

During my upload the RX led blinks.

I hope someone can help me with this problem, in the meanwhile I keep searching for a solution.

Greetings
Denis

Hi Denis,

If you go to Files->Preferences on the IDE and enable "verbose output" during upload, it should show all bytes sent & received. Post the results here.

Where did you purchase the UNO?
Do you see any led activity when you press the reset button?

Sounds like a defective board. iPrototype should be able to replace it for you.

Actually I just fixed it :P can't tell I'm new here. I just unplugged the USB from the PC (previously I had only unplugged it from the UNO. And pressed RESET on the board as well as restarted the IDE program. Not sure which one of those fixed the issue or if all of them did but I used the BLINK program as a test run and it's working fine now. Hope this helps anyone else who might be looking.

and make sure to read this thread on the same error viewtopic.php?f=21&t=32708&p=164605#p164605

Hi there!

I have bought two pieces of Arduino Nano and I connected to Win7. The Win7 had automatically installed the matching driver, but I get the following message: "avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00"

- when I hold Shift Key on upload, I get the same error - nothing changed
- when I press the upload, I see green led blinking for three times, then appears the error msg
- I tried each of two pieces, but I get same error
- When I press the (little-little) reset button, I don't see any blinking (for each of two pieces)

thx for hlp :)

@bistvan - We don't carry the Nano. If you contact the place you purchased them, they should be able to assist you.
