Sorry for the noob questions- I did search using every combination of keywords I could think of without success.
I can program my atTiny85 just fine using my Arduino nano programmed with the ISP sketch…
BUT - I have to do the “Upload using Programmer” from the dropdown menu TWICE each time to get it to program my chip - the first time through always throws a error message (See last few lines of this error message - copied in full as attachment in case that might be helpful):
Interestingly enough, if I DON’T cycle the power to the Arduino, (i.e., if I just burn the sketch to the atTiny I just programmed after it finishes programming on the second time around), it programs the atTiny the first time around without any problems.
Am I doing something wrong, or is this just a bug in the Arduino as ISP software?
And can I use the Arduino nano programmed as ISP with avrDude to set fuses? There is a nice site that has an online tool for setting fuses, and I’m wondering if the Arduino will appear to the USB port and Atmel Studio as the plain old AVRISP mkII programmer, or if it is not really compatible outside the Arduino Development Environment?
