I am using a Orangutan ORG01A microcontroller and I am trying to get the program to flash to the EEPROM. I have the AVRISP programmer, and a nice little 5.5V power supply.
I have opened the makefile and demo file from pololu.com/products/pololu/0125/winavr.html
The build goes fine with no errors produced. And now I’m fighting to get it to program VIA programmers notepad. The makefile has been adjusted to reflect the correct com port, and the settings in PFE are directly from the site.
The board was used by another student and has another program on it currently. The output I get from PFE is:
avrdude -p atmega8 -P com4 -c avrisp -U flash:w:orangutan.hex
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
make.exe: *** [program] Error 1
Process Exit Code: 2
Time Taken: 00:11
I know the port is fine, because I can flash any of a half dozen other controllers I have.
Any input would be much appreciated. My email contact is LostInTheDesign@gmail.com
