hi all, the problem im having is with a new mega that i got. it wont except programming anymore and i dont know why. i get the dreaded stk500: getsync etc.... error. i figured the bootloader may be corrupted somehow so i tried to load it useing my usbtiny isp and i get the following error. i checked the programmer with a duemilanove and the bootloader installed perfect so its not my computer or the loader. id like to be able to erase the chip and start from scratch but im not sure how to do that so im comeing to you guys. if there is any more information i can give you just ask. and im useing the latest IDE 17.
here is the error.
