I have an Arduino Duemilanove that I can program using the USB cable and Windows 7. I have had no problem working with it.
Now I want to use it to program a blank ATMega328pAU (SMD) that I have on a board.
I took the design from the Arduino Nano schematic. the JP1 is a connection for the FTDI and JP2 is an ICSP connector.
I have tried the Arduino on a breadboard (http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard
) tutorial. The first part works flawless (when you upload the scketch to your Duemilanove). The second part though is where I get this message:
I have tried selecting Nano, Duemilanove and others whith a 328. I even tried the minimal circuit thinking that maybe the crystal is not working properly.
Anyone have any idea why it is not working? I think I may try the USBtinyISP but I want to try everything before going that way. I have checked the connections many times but I keep getting the same message.
Thanks in advance
