I tried putting a new Atmega328P-PU chip in my Arduino Duemilanove and burning the Arduino bootloader using Arduino 1.0 on OS X using an AVRISP mkII. It's been 5 minutes and the Arduino program is frozen, and the orange light and the green light are both on on the AVRISP mkII.
Should I just force quit the program?
What could be going on here? How can I diagnose this?

After 10 minutes of sitting there it finally came back and said Error while burning bootloader.

I would have.

I vaguely recall that the AVRISP mkII requires a different kernel driver in order for it to work with AVRDUDE / Arduino.


Do you have the processor that was originally in the Duemilanove?  A processor with a working bootloader?

I do have it.

I know I could use the Arduino as a programmer to program the new chip, but I have the ulterior motive of wanting to program AVRs using my AVRISP mkII. I've successfully used it before, but I'm starting to worry I killed it or something.

Search the forum for other folks who have used a mkII.
