Got a avrispMKII this week and installed everything fine . Hooked it up and
made sure the correct avr was set and read the signature . Fine, it worked and then read the fuses - also fine so set it aside .Today I got to do a little more with it and did the same startup routine for verification .
Fine it shows what I want to see. Tried loading in a program and got what must be the last thing I wanted to see and that was the " failed " message.
When this happens the led indicator (not the green usb) turns orange and the MKII does not let go of the reset line until either a reread of the signature or the fuses .Played with different ISP freqs ( down to 100HZ I think) and nothing lets me program or read the flash. It allows me to read signature and fuses and to change the fuses . I still have a avrisp that I've been using but since they seem to have stopped making them I thought that it's time to upgrade .Since this is a new product in low supply I know that it takes some time for any problems to surface so if anybody has gotten theirs to work or not work ,a little feedback would help .

Well I don't know what I did but it works like a charm now . The usb cable was a little tweaked at the end into the PC and now that I think about it the green usb led seemed to flicker . OK -- why does it always work after you post about it . So if you are having problems with the new mkII check the green usb light .

Pete

P.S. Well worth the upgrade

Well blue it was almost to the point when I was messing with it that I would have traded down to an original ( is the original avrisp a mkI ? ) . I'm still perplexed as to how the original just vanished off into NoMore world. I have not tried the reverse detection out ( would you ? ) but altogether it's a step foward in AVR development on the desktop of new .

P.S. I have my 6 to 10 pin adaptor working .

Or just post a question about it and it will magically heal itself!! :P

When some thing is broke at work, I usually just wave the technical manual at the thing, telling it that it better start working because I will eventually beat the thing into submission.

Well to everyone's amazement, a lot of times the thing starts working - until I leave the machine, that is.
