To save other poor souls 20+ minutes of time:

Just received 2 Nano clones from Bang good, neither worked with the Arduino IDE, I was about to trash them as I was not going to devote time to them. I used Atmel Studio v7 and they accepted the upload, so they are not broken !

 

Went back to Arduino IDE and changed the setting, Processor: 328P : Old Bootloader and they both now work with the Arduino IDE

You thought they might not work? I never had a chinese Arduino clone DOA.

Yup, and according to Google, I ain't the Lone Ranger.  :-)  Seems they have improved in recent years though.

I'll do a little research and upgrade the boot loader if possible, at the moment I know little of boot loaders in general.

Ended up loading the board with the newer, smaller boot loader.

After!, I got Windows 10 to play nice with my AVRISP mk2, that's another story. Should have just grabbed the Dragon

Glad you got it working.

 

Just a quick question:

 

Did you get your AVR ISP mkII to work with Studio 7 under Windows 10?

 

I haven't tackled that challenge yet, and I know there have been a couple Threads on the topic, but I just thought I ask.

 

BTW, I've ordered a number of Nano's from BangGood and they have all worked fine...

However, I now order them without the headers pre-soldered in place.

I received a couple with the Headers all tilted inwards, so they are useless for plugging into a breadboard.

Post #3 here gets a AVRISPmk2 going with Windows 10 fast and simple fix. https://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/...

 

I must have got a couple old boards. I have ordered several clones off Ebay and never had the boot loader issue, that's why I was thrown off. First order with Bang Good (that name though) I get old boot loader

It is fairly straightforward.    Just gather up all your "old bootloader" Nanos.    Re-program them with the new Bootloader.   Away you go.

 

It would have been wise to have re-christened the "new" boards as "Newnos" or other distinctive name.

Hey-ho.    Instead,  the change has been done secretively.
