I have downloaded ATMEL studio 7 (AT S 7) and installed it. (takes approx. 2 1/2 hour!) .
First I connect my Ard UNO (with a running LCD-display program), then I start AT ST 7. I go to TOOLS --> DEVICE PROGRAMMING . The TOOL says SIMULATOR and I pick the ATMega 328P from the drop-down list and presses APPLY.
To check that it works I press READ in DEVICE SIGNATURE.
No problem about this:
I then press MEMORIES in the right LIST and get a kind of menu on the right side.
EEPROM (1 Kb).
When I Press READ for FLASH-memory a pop-up ask for a filename. I enter a filename (eg. doc_222.HEX) and presses OK. A few seconds later I open DOC_222.hex and scan it.
Nothing but FF's in the data field in the hex-file.
According to my knowledge (and what I have read recently), the LCD-display program should be in FLASH-memory, but apparently IT is not !
I Just wonder :
Where IS my code ("LCD-program") or is the AT S 7 program not able to READ the flash memory without a programming unit (eg. AVR ISPmk II or equivalent) or have I got It all wrong ????
But where is "my" code ?? and How do I read/get it ?
