I have a ATMega1280 uController and am trying to program it from AVR Studio and am getting a connection failed error.
I have tried many things posted in forums here and other places but nothing has worked and I am stumped.
I am running Windows 7 64 bit, and am running the current version of AVR Studio (4.18 build 700)
I have tired;
running in Virtual Box with XP Pro SP3 guest...no go
installing alternate WinDriver drivers as was recommended...no go
tried avrdude -v -P con3 -U flash:w:TimerTest.hex -p m1280 -b 9600 -c stk500v2 no go stk500_2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
Had thought that this might be a driver problem BUT
I am able to upload from the arduino-0018 IDE and works great.
I've just about pulled out the last of my hair so any help would be appreciated.
Another Newbie question,
