This is my first time using FTDI with Arduino.
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"
I've used my regular USB cable to successfully program my UNO from this machine (Win 7) before. No problem there.
With the sequencer I see the machine detecting a connection on COM 7 when I plug in the new device. I've tried pressing RESET on the Arduino prior to uploading, which I've seen in some other posts.
Am I missing something here? The description of the cable seems to imply that I don't need any other hardware.
