I am having nothing but headaches trying to make my USBasp work on my new computer. It works fine on my old Windows 8 laptop but I cannot get it to perform at all on Windows 10.
I have tried many suggestions on forums but nothing so far has worked. I have used Zadig to install the latest drivers (libusb-win32 v188.8.131.52). I have totally uninstalled all old drivers and done a fresh re-install of Arduino IDE. Windows recognizes the USBasp when plugged in but I get this error message:
avrdude: warning: cannot set sck period. please check for usbasp firmware update.
avrdude: error: program enable: target doesn't answer. 1
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
the selected serial port
does not exist or your board is not connected
I don't know what to do about this, any help greatly appreciated
