Hey everyone, I bought 5 attiny85v's for use in projects since they are cheaper than arduinos, and I have an arduino mega 2650, however I can't get it to program the attiny.
I've been using this tutorialhttp://hlt.media.mit.edu/?p=1695
to do it.
I've followed the instructions to the letter, however I get error codes when trying to program the attiny.
If I try to put the blink example with the board chosen as attiny85 8mhz internal clock or wit 1mhz internal clock this is the result I get:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
I also get the above error when trying to burn the bootloader with and withoutthe capacitor in place
If I take out the capacitor to disable reset, I get this:
avrdude: please define PAGEL and BS2 signals in the configuration file for part ATtiny85
avrdude: stk500_program_enable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x50
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51
I see that it says to define PAGEL and BS@ in the configuration file, but I can see no such file, and why do I get a different error with the capacitor in place?
So, ever wise forum members, please assist me before I go (more) insane.
Oh yeah, even if I the programmer to arduino as ISP I can program the arduino normally if I select the mega as the board, not sure if that is normal or points to anything, just thought I'd include it.
