Not sure if this is the correct forum, but I have just got out my AVRISP MKii to quickly reflash an old development board. I have a new laptop running Windows 7 and installed Studio 6.
When I went to reflash my dev board, it stated the firmware in the AVRISP mkii need to be upgraded but it just failed & try this several times.
The AVRISP MKii has the green led on on and the red & organge led is flashing. I can see the device in the windows device manager, but still cannot reflash the programmer. What every happens I just cannot reflash the firmware and it looks like the programmer is now dead.
Any help would be appricated,
