I have a bare Amega328P chip that I bootloaded using ArduinoISP and I bootloaded to be AtMega328P 8MHz 3.3V. Each time I upload the bootloader succesfully but when I try to program it using FTDI it gives this error:
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
Given the fact that I checked my wiring, the FTDI module, the Arduino Uno itself and I changed the chip to a brand new one and still got the same error. I’m guessing this must be a bootloader issue. What am I doing wrong?
And additional question: does bootloading a AtMega328 chip several times damages the chip?
The first photo is my bootloader circuit, the second is the circuit I created to using the bootloaded AtMega328P (Arduino on breadboard) and the thir one is my bootloader board selection.
Thank you in advance!
