I have a new avrisp module (gray box) that studio (version 4.11 build 410 serv pack3) said needs upgraded. I used stk500.ebn (date 1/31/05) to update---shorted two pins on the module for 5 sec, hit flash prog.
It programmed & verified. Was only providing 5V & gnd to the module. If I immediately hit the "AVR" button (such as to down load my appplication code) it comes up with the no-communication, please selct com port message. This is whether I cycle power, get out & into studio, cross my fingers, etc.
Obvioulsy the overall studio system CAN talk to the module since I can reprogram it as often as I like! It just won't communicatew when I hit the "AVR" button to program MY processor.
Also, the little LED no longer lights up---so am I using the correct file to down load? If not, please point me to it. Any other thoughts?
When upgrading the module, under advance settings I get: mode 1 blb0 mode2 blb1 mode 1
fuse bits--all grayed out
startup 64ms + 258 ck
targ sw: 4.0
