Hi,
First, thanks to everyone for their help with my floating point math problem.
I've built a programmer from the Atmel 910 I downloaded from their site. The problem is programming the firmware into the AVR.
Perhaps my circuit isn't working properly or I'm missing some steps. I'm getting the noboard message when I try to program the on board AVR. Should Studio recognize the board even though it isn't programmed?
Is there a place I can get the start up procedure? I may be able to program the board from my PicAll programmer but haven't tried it yet.
Thanks, Robert

Hi Robert,

The old chicken-and-egg dilemma: Yes, you need a programmer in order to load the firmware into your new programmer, AVRprog will in other words not recognize the empty chip. I hope you've got some friends with an STK board or something :)

Best regards,

Morten, AVR tech. support, Atmel FAE

Go and have a look at the PonyProgrammer at http://www.lancos.com/prog.html

This is a free programmer for loads of chips including AVRs. The site also has schematic details on how to use the software (f.e. STK200 like dongles etc).

This may help you programming your AVR after which you can can use your own stuff.

Good luck!
