Hi guys, new here, and new to the Arduino as well.
I've hit a snag trying to use my Arduino Uno to program a ATtiny85 chip with a simple "blink" program. I'm following this tutorial.http://hlt.media.mit.edu/?p=1695
I've loaded the Uno with the ISP sketch and hooked up everything correctly to the ATtiny85 as far as I can tell. As I understand it the 1.0 software requires the ATtiny85's fuse bits to be configured from 1MHz to 8MHz so the SoftwareSerial library with work with the chip. But when I hit "burn bootloader" (with "ATtny85 internal 8MHz clock" selected as board) I get an error message "avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"".
Any ideas why it's not communicating with the chip?
I apologies if this is a common or trivial question, but a search came up dry.
