Homemade Arduino board not in sync with Arduino IDE

Hi,

I flashed a blank Atmega328 chip with an AVR dragon lended.

That chip was running nicely on the breadboad it had been flashed on.

I could program it with arduino IDE, through a uno board without it's chip.

Then I built a small board for that chip.

The program (blinking LED) is working properly, but I can't reprogram it with arduino IDE anymore.

I got the message :

"avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00"
