Downloaded Studio 6 last night
Uninstalled Studio 5.1 and 6
Installed Studio 6 without nay problem.
Played around with 8 bit ATmega, seemed OK.
I noticed Studio 6 wanted to do, and did succesfully perform Firmware Update to both AVR ONE and JTAGICE3
Tonight tested with SAM-ICE and SAM3X-EK
Connected SAM-ICE first to see if it would ask to do a Firmware Update, it didn't
Connected SAM-ICE to USB,
Connected SAM-ICE to SAM3X-EK
Connected AC adaptor [with carefully bent USA plug to suit Australian power point] to SAM3X-EK
Tried to compile and debug SAM3X-EK sample application HX8347A example.
Selected SAM-ICE as debug tool
Debug; Start debugging and break
Some 10 seconds later before the compiler finished a Window pops up, must do firmware Update
I agreed, it started to do a Firmware Update to SAM-ICE
Behind that another windows pops up from Studio 6, can't load the application
Firmware update appears to finish - I THINK - as that window went away.
From that point on;
Studio 6 says SAM-ICE is connected but will not enter program mode, I get this error
Unable to enter programming mode.
Please verify device selection, interface settings, target power and connections to the target device.

Segger software sees the SAM-ICE but cannot see the ARM MCU on the SAM3x_EK

Common Atmel team, what do I do now ?
That message from Segger "SAM-ICE can only be used with Atmel devices"
Does that mean that I should have purchased direct from Segger [no difference in price really] instead of buying a SAM-ICE ?
Exactly what is all that about?
SAM3X-EK which WAS running a sample application no longer runs anything.
I am so HAPPY I tried the RELEASE Version of Studio 6, 2 days away from the 13th I figured it would be safe, I was wrong.
