I hooked up my breadboard exactly the way it said here (http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard)
ok, i am trying to burn the bootloader now, but am having different problems, which i have not investigated yet, i am using a paralell programmer from (http://arduino.cc/en/Hacking/ParallelProgrammer?from=Main.ParallelProgrammer)
you only need to burn Audion bootloader once than you can load programs using normal serial cable.
Too difficult for new users?
well i kind of solved the problem. i was googling the whole day and find that the problem must be in parallel programmer or on computer side(WinXP SP3), and that nobody actually solved the problem. i threw away the parallel port and order a professional programmer, since this is not solvable
is the USBtiny a good programmer? i mean in the sens of capability to programmer other devices, because i am under the expression that usb tiny is good only for programming arduinos, i have not dig in to details of programing microchips, but i hop i am buying good and versatile stuff? AVR programmer is capable of programming other chips.
