crikeyyou kind of assume that basic parts will work correctly!glad you got it sortedbut I bet you are VERY glad!
First job is trying to work out in Eagle how to print the two solder layers !!
(If it all goes to plan I'll send you a board and a 1284p)
Listen to Crossroads, he knows the hardware very well.
Anyhow I am working on it, I'll supply you both with a working bootloader soon.
I was using the same setup with a 328p which was working perfectly using the same caps and crystal!The only changes I made when I went to the ceramic oscillator was to pull out the caps and crystal, install the ceramic osc just below the 1284p and use 3 jump wires to connect it. I then tan the IDE and it worked straight off. Like I said, very strange! The board was even tried with 3 differentComputers so it can't even be a bad USB power line on a particular machine. I'm at a loss as the what it is.
I believe we are all referring to the same thing.
