Hi everyone, first post here on AVRfreaks :D
Up until recently I've been using my trusty old copy of windows XP to burn code to AVR's with a USBasp, avrdude 5.4 and AVRstudio 4. Recently I installed Windows 7 on my computer, and after re-installing AVRstudio and AVRdude, I found that AVRdude would no longer recognise my USBasp. and keeps coming up with "error: could not find USB device "USBasp" with vid=0x16c0 pid=0x5dc".
I was a bit confused for a moment before I realised that I hadn't yet installed the drivers for the USBasp. But here's the problem, Windows 7 refuses to accept that the drivers I'm offering it are drivers at all! It just says "Windows could not find driver software for your device" whenever I direct it to the folder where the drivers are.
can anyone suggest how to fix this? Google has turned up nothing upon searching for USBasp win7 drivers.
