I need to program the Seeduino board (with AtMega1280), but I would like to use CVAVR. I have connected the ISP connection from the STK500 to the Seeduino board. As a start, I am trying to read the chip details using CVAVR, but get an error "STK500 error entering programming mode". When I connect the ISP back to a chip on the STK500, another chip's details are read with no problem - so the STK500 or any connection in between are not faulty.
So, for some reason there seems to be some error in communication from the STK500 to the Seeduino board (I think)...
Has anybody had a similar problem before? Thank you in advance!
