It’s my first time trying to use an ATMega168 with no pre-burned bootloader.
I read some stuff online and made my own parallel programmer.
I connected it to my Duemilanove using the 6 ICSP pins, but I can’t program anything with it.
Tried Arduino software, avrdude, pony prog… all of them are telling me that they cannot find the device.
The yellow led (L) on my board is on while the cable is plugged and flashes only once when I click “burn bootloader” in arduino, after that i’m getting an error.
the error message is
“avrdude: AVR device not responding
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
avrdude: Yikes! Invalid device signature.
avrdude: Expected signature for ATMEGA168 is 1E 94 06”
I also checked the options that I am using “Parallel Programmer” and “Arduino Diecimila or Duemilanove w/ ATmega168” board in the Tools menu.
Can anyone help me?
I need it kinda urgent
forgot to mention… my board is connected at a 12V power supply while trying to burn the bootloader
