I purchased a Pololu USB AVR Programmer v2.1 in November but just got around to trying to using it.
I’ve installed both the ( Pololu USB AVR Programmer v2 Software and Drivers for Windows (9MB msi)) and (pololu-avr-bundle-151002.exe). Both times when connecting the device to my computer, no connection sound is heard and detection of the device never occurs. I’ve tried multiple times and different operating systems (Linux and Windows). No change in the device manager device list when the device is connected. I’ve also used different cables that I’ve verified works with other devices.
With initial plug in of device, red and green led light up. Than after a few seconds the red led turns off and the green usb status led just turns on and off at 1Hz. I assume from reading the documentation that this indicates device is waiting for a a particular message from the computer that indicates that the programmer is recognized but is never getting it. Which would make sense since windows isn’t identifying a connection with the device. This happens on both Ubuntu Linux and Windows 10.
Please let me know how to get device to connect.
