Hello, I got some Atmega8 chips that i would like to use on standalone projects. I followed this tutorial to burn the bootloader with AVR Studio and an Arduino UNO board http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Learning/Burn168 It said OK to everything, went pretty fast, but I couldn't use it. I am trying to follow this tutorial now : http://todbot.com/blog/2009/05/26/minimal-arduino-with-atmega8/ When I try to program the chip, just reading signature ( which worked when it was fresh ) AVR Studio writes 'Entering programming mode ... FAILED!' with an error message asking to verify everything. I see 0x00 0x00 0x00 next to 'read signature' I'm a bit lost, did I break the chip ? Thank you Philippe
PS : I put another ATMEGA8 - 16PU in the UNO board
Setting mode and device parameters.. OK! Entering programming mode.. OK! Reading signature .. 0x1E, 0x93, 0x07 .. OK! Leaving programming mode.. OK!
Flash:HEX file ( Files\arduino-0022\hardware\arduino\bootloaders\atmega8\ATmegaBOOT.hex )
Setting mode and device parameters.. OK! Entering programming mode.. OK! Reading FLASH .. OK! WARNING: FLASH byte address 0x1C00 is 0xFF (should be 0x12).. FAILED! Leaving programming mode.. OK!
I'm not going further as I don't know what I'm doing wrong :((
