I want to know if there is another way to Program Atmega328P-U chip. I ordered the chip from Jameco, and the catalog said it was a Atmega328P-PU, but it was the was the Atmega328P-U they sent me. The ISP programmer will not program this, because it is not the correct device ID. I informed them I wanted the aforementioned part number, and they said it was the same part. I agree, except for the fact that it will not program in the ISP programming process, it gets the Device ID error. And terminates the program.
I understand you can change something or add a script to the Config file to program it? If this is so, can you walk me through it, so I can use these chips? I tried to change the lines, and write it, but, the folder is write protected, and no matter what I did, in changing the read only, it still would not let me save the changes.
Is there a way to permanently add this to the config file, so it will not have to be change every time?
This is a bit frustrating, but, I failed to find the forum article dealing with this issue.
Thank you in advance for your help, folks!
