Did you read the other post you wrote/asked?

It did not help you?

Did you set the jumpers correctly?
Auto Reset jumper installed;
and serial enabled jumper in correct position?

Did you try uploading pressing the reset button? right before (or right after or seconds after) you press the upload button?

Did you try to upload sketches, without the bootloader, using your ISP Programmer?

Vldo,
you know, this is only necessary because to burn the bootloader using IDE is not working for you.

But I think you are making mistakes yet.

Look:
When clicking Start/Programs/Acessories/DOS Prompt, the black window will show you this:
Code:
C:\>
or some other prompt, like this:
Code:
C:\WINDOWS\>

Then, you must type (or copy/paste**) the FULL line command, in ONE Dos Prompt line:
Code:
C:\Program Files\arduino-0011-win\arduino-0011\hardware\tools\avr\bin\avrdude -CC:\Program Files\arduino-0011-win\arduino-0011\hardware\tools\avr\etc\avrdude.conf -v -v -v -v -pm8 -cdapa -e -Ulock:w:0xFF:m -Uhfuse:w:0xca:m -Ulfuse:w:0xdf:m -F -b115200
Then Press <ENTER>

Your mistake was typing the command line divided in TWO Dos Prompt lines. That's why it didn't work.

** to copy (the command line above) you can select all line and use CTRL+C or click with the mouse  right button. But to paste inside the DOS Prompt black box, the CTRL+V will not work. You must use the mouse right button, to select "paste".

Hellow Adilson,
whell, but her's what I did :
Iv'e tried to load your'e instruction in the windows "command line" (I'm using win xp sp2 prof) just by dropping the "avrdude.exe" in to it, pres anter, and got a lot of values... Than I tried many ways to open the "avrdude.conf"
and finely did this with the "word pad", but I did'nt know how to modifie it...
On my suggestion on use the command line, is supposed that you write the full command on DOS prompt:
Code:
C:\<your directory>\arduino-0011-win\arduino-0011\hardware\tools\avr\bin\avrdude -CC:\<your directory>\arduino-0011-win\arduino-0011\hardware\tools\avr\etc\avrdude.conf -v -v -v -v -pm8 -cdapa -e -Ulock:w:0xFF:m -Uhfuse:w:0xca:m -Ulfuse:w:0xdf:m -F -b115200
Changing only the content of <your directory>.
You don't have/need to open avrdude.conf file.

Your computer seems to be communicating with arduino now.

Did you set the fuses properly? Or burned the bootloader - like I said on first post (doing this will set the fuses correctly too)?

Quote
If your Atmega IC was empty (i.e. you never burned the bootloader on it), you must change the fuses on it to make it work fine. If you're not an expert, I think the easiest way to do it is burning the bootloader. But you can use the IDE0011 bootloader, with the parallel port programmer.
You must select the board type on IDE: tools/board/arduino NG or older w/ atmega8
Then, select tools/burn bootloader/w/ parallel programmer.
If you have tryed and did not succeed, you can try the DOS alternative (if using DOS or Windows):
Run this:
[glow]C:\<your directory>[/glow]\arduino-0011-win\arduino-0011\hardware\tools\avr\bin\avrdude -C[glow]C:\<your directory>[/glow]\arduino-0011-win\arduino-0011\hardware\tools\avr\etc\avrdude.conf -v -v -v -v -pm8 -cdapa -e -Ulock:w:0xFF:m -Uhfuse:w:0xca:m -Ulfuse:w:0xdf:m -F -b115200

And don't worry about the english. It's not my native language too. smiley-razz

vldo,

Brohogan is correct.
[glow]Your usb cable cannot feed the arduino through DC jack.[/glow]
It's necessary more than 7 volts to feed arduino using DCjack, or 5volts to feed arduino through 5v/gnd pins.

but its strange, couse when I first connected it the power led whas very weack, but right after Iconnected the parallel only the "L" led lit,  and when I tried to connect  both, the both leds lit normal. but here next, after I connected only the "usb" the power led whas still normal ... spookie
and when I connected with the giveio the and tried to uplod, than both "L" and power leds binked rappidly and the power led whas weak agein

The power led will lit weakly because your DC voltage from usb is too low.
The L led, and the power led are affected by the parallel port programmer (PPP), that's why they lit a little when the PPP is connected.
[glow]Fix your DC power problem, and try again.[/glow]

But [glow]don't forget to put the jumpers[/glow] in your board, like in this picture:

Hi.

first:
you said:
"powering through usb-dc adapter cable"
how are you connecting the usb-dc adapter cable? Is the power led lit?
if you are connecting the adapter to the DC jack it will not work. The voltage regulator needs at last 7volts.
But you can connect the adapter directly to the +5v. pin and to gnd pin on Arduino.

second:
if you're using the parallel port programmer (http://www.arduino.cc/en/Hacking/ParallelProgrammer)
I think you need to install giveio before. You'll find this link (http://web.mit.edu/6.115/www/miscfiles/giveio.zip) at the end of the parallel port programer page.
If you're using WindowsXP, this would be necessary:
http://www.melabs.com/downloads/XP_stop_polling.reg
More info here: http://www.arduino.cc/en/Hacking/Bootloader

third:
if you want to upload sketches without using the bootloader, be sure the changes you've made on preferences.txt file was correct. Your post says:
[glow]uopload[/glow].using=parallel
and the correct is:
[glow]upload[/glow].using=parallel

If your Atmega IC was empty (i.e. you never burned the bootloader on it), you must change the fuses on it to make it work fine. If you're not an expert, I think the easiest way to do it is burning the bootloader. But you can use the IDE0011 bootloader, with the parallel port programmer.
You must select the board type on IDE: tools/board/arduino NG or older w/ atmega8
Then, select tools/burn bootloader/w/ parallel programmer.

Before burned the bootloader, you can upload sketches through serial cable (using the bootloader - remember to change upload.using=bootloader on preferences.txt) or upload sketches using the parallel port programmer (not using the bootloader already recorded on it - remember to change the upload.using=parallel on preferences.txt)

Note that if you're using an Atmega8 instead of Atmega168, the register is MCUCSR (Atmega168 is MCUSR). And the page for the Atmega8 datasheet is 41.

Arduino board Pin13 is not the same on IC.

Arduino board Pin13 is equivalent to IC pin 19.

I don't know if you considered this to use the blink sketch example, since you're not using the Arduino board.

Which windows do you have? Vista, XP, 98?

If you're using 98, I think it's necessary to download the 0007 version, I'm not sure.

Can you try to rename the directory, from this:
D:\programmas\arduino\arduino-0009\...

to this:
D:\programmas\arduino-0009-win\arduino-0009\...

If the problem remains, can you try downloading 0010 version?

Did you try pressing reset button instead of waiting for Arduino to Auto-reset?

What happens? The same?

Gabriel,
Sorry. I posted all this because I thought it never worked before.
