Correct mode of Parallel Port to burn bootloader


I'm trying to burn the bootloader of my arduino (328P) and want to known what is the correct mode of configuration the parallel port at the bios of my pc. There are 4 options:

  • Normal
  • Bi-Directional
  • ECP
  • EPP

I want to burn the bootloader using a simple parallel cabe.

Whats the correct mode ?

Thanks. Victor Jabur

Maybe normal as I never heard anyone messing with the LPT port definitions in bios to program some chips.

There are only four modes. Let us know which one works

Well guys, my problem is to burn the bootloader of my board (328P)

I guess that my problem is the low voltage at my parallel port (3,36 V).

Anyone has any recomendation ?

This voltage could be yhe problem for my wrong bootloader ?
