My problem is the following. Something obviously went wrong. I left my mini usb cable at a friend's place, and have no other. I was working on a small sketch, and figured, is will use my UsbASP tp program my nano. It's the ebay variant, with outdated firmware. I wasn't using it lately, so never bothered to update the firmware. Beforehand I solved the sck period issue, with the connection of the jumper that slows down the programmer to 8mhz, wich worked for programming ATTinys on a breadboard. Now after using it to program my Nano - a chinese clone with the ch340g usb chip - I had an unpleasant surprise. The Nano's onboard usb stopped working. At least in IDE. Avrdude gives me error messages, and will not upload the sketch.
message: "avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00"
Is this solveable? I can program the nano with UsbASP just fine, but not via cable, wich is annoying. The cable now works only as a power lead.
