Topic: ArduinoISP Arduino uno & blank atmega8 bootloader burn trouble (Read 8 times) previous topic - next topic


ive been to that page (which i said not to link) and it failed with same errors, try again and this time READ MY POST

Failed with what "same errors"?
What command line you use in avrdude and which was the error it displayed?

i dont use command line i use arduino IDE


On this page I have a sketch that runs on a Uno that will program a bootloader on various chips, including the Atmega8.


I'm not going to copy and paste thousands of words, and photos, to save you the trouble of following one link.
this is basically the arduinoisp tutorial the only difference is mutilation of a good 6pin header


I'm guessing that English isn't your first language - your sentence structure is hard to follow.
Is there one of the sections in the International section that might be able to help better?

What programmer are you using?

Not at all. It doesn't use avrdude at all, so you won't get any avrdude error messages. You did read it, didn't you?

The bootloader is programmed onto the Uno, you connect them together, and (under command from the serial monitor) it writes the bootloader.

mutilation of a good 6pin header

I made up that header for my convenience. Just use six jumper wires if you prefer.
