I just bought some 328's off of sparkfun without the bootloader installed on them. I have tried installing the bootloader using both the arduino v22 software and AVRStudio using a avrisp mkII programmer. When i try to install using the arduino software I either get a avrdude: Expected signature for ATMEGA328P is 1E 95 0F or a avrdude: Yikes! invalid device signature error. I have installed the libsub drivers for the programmer and changed the preferences.txt from upload.using=bootloader to upload.using.avrispmkii. However, none of this seems to help.
When i use the avrstudio, after changing the drivers to the jungo usb drivers that come with it, the program with not even connect with the or recognize the programmer.
I am using a duemilanove board and have checked the connections of all cables involved many times. The red wire of the programmer is attached to pin 1.
Any help is appreicated.
