I am trying to get an STK600 working with WinAVR and Studio but have a number of problems. I have connected the 6-pin cable between the ISP/PDI headers, connected the USB cable to the jack next to the power connector and installed the driver successfully (it shows up in Device Drivers under Jungo).
After selecting Tools > Program AVR > Connect and selected STK600/USB the STK600 status window opens. I selected Atmega2560 and the message at the bottom says the USB is detected and says "STK600 with serial number xxxxx found". So far, so good.
But when trying to read the signature, an error window pops up saying "There seems to be a short in the ISP cable'. I have checked the cable - no shorts. What's the problem?
I tried to create a new project by selecting Project > Project Wizard > New Project > AVR GCC. But the STK600 is not in the Debug Platform list. Am I missing something here?
