maybe someone of you encountered such problems: i'v tried to burn a bootloader (using a parallel programer) to the 168 but without any sucsess. in the arduino enviorment it says:
avrdude: AVR device not responding avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1 Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override this check.
the thing is that i'v burned a bootloader to a ATMEGA8 sucsessfully (not trough the arduino enviorment, it gave the same massege. i used ISP PROGRAMMER by Adam Dybowski) and it worked.
trough isp programmer i also tried burn a small led controlling program to thest the chip, it was burned and worked but the timing of the program (delays) were trippled :-?
i have tried to burn an older bootloader also but with same results: when i try to d/l a sketch it gives the following massage:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51
has any idea about what's going on ??
