Hi guys

I am trying to connect to my AVRISP MKII but AVR studio doesnt recognize it. I tried both AVR 4 and 6.2

The LED on the device is green as you can see in the picture.

 

 

 

I also installed the USB file needed for AVR Studio.

I used to have a similar issue and instead I tried to upgrade the firmware which ended up with another problem so I manually downgraded the firmware to what it was before.

Anyone have faced the same issue? or knows how to make it recognizable?

Post the pinout of the connector on your board. We know what the pinout on the AVRisp is. You have 5V on your board? (dont run board from the AVRisp)

"I also installed the USB file needed for AVR Studio" - what file? As far as I know, when you install the Atmel USB driver (which normally gets installed as a part of AVR and/or Atmel Studio installation), you should get a Jungo folder in your Device Manager list. It looks that you do not have the USB driver installed.

I don't have a voltmeter with me to check the VCC, but I assume it is 3.3 V

I hope I posted exactly what u asked ;-)

There is a usbinstaller with the avr studio but not together, I must install them both.

The avr studio 6.2 tries to install the usbinstaller itself but then it faces an error, therefore I go to install it manually

In Device Manager your AVRISP MkII device driver has problems as designated but the warning shield in the photo, you need to fix this before anything will work!

Happy Trails,

"There is a usbinstaller with the avr studio but not together" - I don't understand what you trying to say. Atmel Studio 6.x comes with the USB driver. You can also download the USB driver separately from https://gallery.atmel.com/ (search for AtmelUSBInstaller there).

It looks that you already have some driver installed. Uninstall it first if you want to use Atmel Studio. (I have never used avrdude. I know that it comes with some sort of a driver (libusb driver?). Maybe you have that installed? You will have to uninstall that!)

These two are two different files 

 

 

when I install both of them they dont install jungo folder

avr 6.2 comes with usb installer and when i try to install it, it asks me if I wanna install it, by saying yes, it says there is a problem, and cant install it, but continues to install the avr studio. then what i do is to install the usbinstaller separately, the file u can see in the picture.

I tried many times to install a different version of avr studio and each time i uninstalled everything and installed again.

I think my main problem is why avr 6.2 is unable to install automatically the usbinstaller itself. maybe if that problems solves i can get jungo folder, if my problem is that.

Right-click on 'AVRISP mkII', then 'Properties' and then show an image of that screen.

Same thing with 'Uknown Device'.

as long as the exclamation mark is on its name, you don't have the device correctly installed (or running).

 

The drivers should be on your "Atmel installation folder" in "Atmel USB" folder.

"why avr 6.2 is unable to install automatically" - probably because you already have something else installed. Are there any USB drivers in your list of installed programs? If yes, unstall them all, then install Atmel Studio 6.2. BTW, the driver that I downloaded from the Gallery recently was AtmelUSBInstaller-6.2.342.exe; i.e., a little newer than your 6.2-200.

Also, I don't know about the latest Atmel USB drivers. But I think in the past they did not like if a programmer (AVRISP mkII or any other) was plugged in during install. Make sure to unplug it.

As it is shown in one of the pictures, I tried to install AVR studio 6.2 beta, and while trying to install it, something (I have no clue what) avoided to install the usbinstaller. I only got a message that usbinstaller is unable to install.

I downloaded the latest version from Atmel website and after uninstalling the previous version, I tried to install the new version, which is AStudio6.2 sp1 1502.

The program was able to install the usbinstaller and therefore I could get Jungo folder installed and now the issue is solved.

 

 

I appreciate your attention and help. 

Thanks :-)
