Yes powered it up three different ways. avrdude shows it sees good target voltage. Reset pin has a 1k resistor, and both lights are green on the programmer. in avrdude it shows avrdude: stk500v2_command(): command failed and a couple other things about stk500v2.
I press shift and click on the program button in arduino IDE, data goes to mkii, first light flashes green like data is moving, second light quickly flashes red, then I get the error.
This all started right after I tried to burn the stk500v2 bootloader. It did something for about 10 sec then I got an error. I didnt right it down though
Do you think its trying to use the bootloader instead of the mkii.
Oh, and I tried the clock thing with no luck. avrdude shows sck period :8.00us
I do have the external 16mhz crystal already hooked up.
The programmer doesnt show up on a com port all I see is the lib driver and it is under that.
I'm going crazy!
