I just received my “Atmel AVRISP STK500 USB ISP Programmer” (SKU: TOL102C3B) yesterday. I can’t seem to program anything. AVR Studio on my desktop computer refuses to connect to the device (drivers installed and COM port assigned). On my laptop it connects okay (data below) but when I try to program I get an error. “A problem occurred when executing the command. Make sure that you are using the correct programming method. Current mode is ISP. See the commend output for more info.” I have a friends programmer actually from Atmel and it programs fine with the same setup. I’ve double checked the PINs and power.
Detecting on ‘Auto’…
