I am trying to run avrdude from the cmd window so I can have a more detailed look at how my USBtinyisp is interacting with my atmel328P. The problem I am having is that when I use USBtinyISP with the Arduino IDE it works %20 of the time when I am trying to upload a sketch. When I try to upload the bootloader it works once on computer start up and never again. SO I am trying to use AVRDUDE directly (since Arduino seems to be just a GUI for avrdude anyway).
The problem I am having is that whenever I type avrdude into the cmd window the cmd gives me this message.
'avrdude' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
I have manually put a copy avrdude into the system 32 file so I know it is there. I have also fixed any path problem cmd might have by manually linking it to system 32 (with the proper addressing). I have no idea what to do now.
I know USBtinyisp with upload the bootloader and I know it can upload programs but the consistency of this is awful.
Thanks in advance.
