I am having a problem with the Game Controller code. On trying to upload it, it returns the following cryptic error message. ‘avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00’ This is not a particularly helpful error. What can I do to fix it?

Note that I used the default sensorTest code in the source code on this site when this error was raised.

Hi James!

This error is probably not related to the Game Controller code. It happens when the Arduino IDE is unable to transfer the generated code to the Arduino. I guess it will also occur when you try to upload other programs.

Please make sure that you’ve selected the right serial port and the right board. Also make sure that the board is currently not communicating with other programs like a serial terminal.

Best, Maik
