I have tried EVERYTHING to make this work, including replacing the board.
I have an arduino fio
I am attempting to upload a sketch to it (just a blink to validate it works) with an FTDI to USB cable
I attempted to use a different comp with a fresh install that resulted in the same error.
I updated my FTDI driver to 126.96.36.199 still the same error
I dismantled the FTDI wire and re-soldered it to new wires to verify it wasn't a bad connection.
I attempted setting the baud rate in device manager to 9600,57600, and 115200
I tried pressing the reset button as I uploaded the sketch
I tried changing COMS
I tried plugging an Arduino Uno in, validating that it works no problem. Then I plugged the fio back in. Got the same error again same error.
This is the second board I have gotten that does this. It's not the board. What the hell is wrong with this software. I shouldn't have to work this hard to upload a freaking sketch.

And yes, I have tried restarting both the IDE and the computer(s).
