Problem for burning the Arduino bootloader on a ATTiny85

Hi, I have a problem for burning the Arduino bootloader on a ATTiny85 : I've an arduino mega 2560 and I followed this tutorial http://hlt.media.mit.edu/?p=1695 but I get this error:

avrdude: please define PAGEL and BS2 signals in the configuration file for part ATtiny85 avrdude: stk500_program_enable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x50 avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1 Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override this check.

avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51

Please help me. Thanks you in advance

From that page:

(Note this doesn’t actually burn a bootloader onto the board; you’ll still need to upload new programs using an external programmer.)

Thanks you for your quick reply! Which programmer you suggest me to buy? Thanks Wilfish

I'm using the UNO with the MIT instructions and no issues. Just remember, you "flash" the Tiny from the 1.0 GUI but you are only setting the fuses, not actually downloading the bootloader.

Thanks Ray, I've tried to follow the instruction of the MIT but now I get this error

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00

What method did you use to disable auto-reset?

Are you using the Arduino 1.0 IDE?

Are you using the updated version of ArduinoISP?

Hi,

  • I'm using the Arduino 1.0 IDE.
  • To disable auto-reset, I have a 1µ capacitor between gnd and reset.
  • But I'm using the ArduinoISP already present in the IDE.Where can I download the updated version of ArduinoISP?

Thank you for your help

Wilfish: To disable auto-reset, I have a 1µ capacitor between gnd and reset.

They may not be big enough. There are accounts that 10 uF (or bigger) are required.

But I'm using the ArduinoISP already present in the IDE.Where can I download the updated version of ArduinoISP?

Thank you very much it works. I'm relieved. Wilfish
