Try moving the 10uF to your Uno Reset and Gnd and try again (Remember polarity on the cap). Apparently it is a common Uno problem when programming the ATTiny. When I was pulling the ICSP jumpers, the Reset jumper not connected caused that error with me.
Hi,Reading back through this I'm not precisely sure where you are at when you get this error. Presumably your ArduinoISP sketch is loaded okay, then you've wired everything back up as per the tutorial so you're ready to program the ATTiny (added the reset capacitor and other wires to Arduino) then you've changed the target board to the correct ATTiny13, and changed the programmer to Arduino as ISP, then you've done the "burn the bootloader" step (or is this where you're getting the error) and now you're trying to upload a sketch and getting the error?
Hi,I've tried to reproduce what you're doing. I don't have any ATTiny13's but had a fresh ATTiny85, unused right out of the tube.That error appears to be when the ISP sketch gets 0's as the returned signature - which is what happens when there's no response from the chip. One thought - I can reproduce that error burning the bootloader if I put the ATTiny in the circuit wrong way round. Just clutching at straws, but the dot at pin 1 really is indistinct.Geoff
BTW, I just switched to an Uno and the reset cap is unnecessary, and all three speeds work; blinking on pin3 of the ATTiny. I have Uploaded via Programmer and just the Normal Upload button (I didn't know that would work...).
Just to verify, the reset cap goes between the ARDUINO reset and the GND, not the reset on the attiny13a and your using arduino 1.0.1
BTW, I just switched to an Uno and the reset cap is unnecessary...
