Hi again.
I have a little question: Is it possible tu use a parallel to USB cable with this circuit? Anybody has tested it? Which software works in this case if the answer to the last question is positive?
Thanks

Nope you cannot use USB-parallel converters as they are only for printers and don' handle all the functionality that parallel programmers require. But given that you'd spend more on a USB-parallel converter than a real USB-ISP programmer why wouldn't you just get the latter?

Thank you for your answer.
I know that an USB programmer is better than any adapter and an old circuit.
I was thinking in the big amount of good solutions to beginners made with a parallel port. For example CNC interfaces trough the parallel port.
See you :)

Yes, but as I say a USB-parallel costs more than a USB-ISP. So why would you buy a USB-parallel in order to run one of these hopeless, half-baked ISP programmers when you could have an efficient solution for less?

If only the cost is the problem, an USB to parallel port cable cost to me only $12, and any USB-ISP costs more then this ;-)
The possibility to have again a parallel port in my PC is what I´m looking.

See you

A USB-to-parallel converter will not work with a par port programming dongle :!:

0k !
Now I have a SKT200/300 dongle and i want to make an USB dongle. There are more than one in the internet. Could you please give me a hint to choose the right model? I'm planning doing it by myself. Pros and cons of each model are enough to me ;-)
Thanx in advance !!

Thomas Fischl supplies all the info you need for a home-built.
Use your PPPPD to program the AVR with Thomas' application.

Enjoy !

although some Forum-members claim that it is not supported in AVR-Studio-4 (the beautiful programming-environment from Atmel): sorry guys, that is not true! Kanda supplies a plug-in for AVR-Studio with the STK200 and it works fine! And comfortable.

Where can I get this plug in, I can't find it. :-/

Complete guess but what happens when you type "Kanda" into Google?

EDIT: ah a cross post eh? Seems he answered his own question:
