Why is my Arduino Nano not uploading anymore?

Why is my Arduino Nano not uploading anymore?

Know this is old but I ran onto it during my search for Nano (V3)’s not uploading so thought might help someone else. Problem is the bootloader – Arduino IDE BUT I Found an easy solution (right under my nose). I realized that my nano’s had been uploading just fine then I had finally updated the Arduino AVR Boards from 1.6.20 to 1.6.21.

How to change processor in Arduino Nano bootloader?

I changed processor: In the Arduino IDE select TOOLS > PROCESSOR > pulldown menu from ATmega328P to “ATmega328P (Old Bootloader)”. Since then, I have uploaded many programs to several different Nano’s V3 (Prolofic interace Chipset) without issue. I was having the same problem and got the same error message.

What kind of processor does the Arduino Nano use?

But the new boards manager has a new ATmega328 processor choice for the Nano. I changed processor: In the Arduino IDE select TOOLS > PROCESSOR > pulldown menu from ATmega328P to “ATmega328P (Old Bootloader)”. Since then, I have uploaded many programs to several different Nano’s V3 (Prolofic interace Chipset) without issue.

Why is my Arduino sketch not working on my nano?

The Prismatic software runs at 115200 baud on the application level between the Arduino sketch/program and the Prismatic hardware. The Arduino write_compiled_sketch_to_Nano failed (getsync () error) because the Nano had a Mega168A (an older design) instead of a Mega328P (recent Nano design).

What is the default bootloader for Arduino Nano?

The “old bootloader” version successfully uploads at 57600, but the default “new” version tries to upload at 115200 and fails. I also had that error message.

How do you upload text to Arduino Nano?

Click the OK button. Attempt an upload, as you did before. Wait for the upload process to hang. Click on the black console pane at the bottom of the Arduino IDE window. Press Ctrl + A to select all the text. Press Ctrl + C to copy the selected text to the clipboard.

How can I upload my sketch to Arduino Nano?

The USB-serial chip on official Mega 2560 and faithful clones use a programmable USB-serial chip which has a VID/PID specific to the Mega 2560 so the Arduino IDE is able to label the Mega’s port in the Tools > Port menu. MY sketch would not upload to the Nano with IDE 1.8.5
