A picture is worth a thousand words

 

Can you post a picture?

 

If you bought it from Ebay it is probably a Clone of one if it comes with AS4...Which is a very old version of Studio

Thats not a Real ISP MKII, but a Chinese clone.  A real MKII's LEDs will light up when its plugged into the USB port.

 

The fact that it is enumerating at leasts tells that it is somewhat alive.

 

On that disk that they included there should be a folder or something that contains the driver.

 

What operating system and version of Studio are you using?

Why not also contact the people you bought it from---if they sell many, someone must have gotten some to work.

They can tell you what you need to do.

When in the dark remember-the future looks brighter than ever.   I look forward to being able to predict the future!

in the first folder there is a folder named AVRISP2_FTDI Driver

& when i set driver from this location it display USB SERIAL PORT only in windows

i have tried to install AS7 on my pc but the installer display tht it needs newer version of windows

i read tht drivers would be included with the AVR Studio

I too have a windows 7 Machine and AS7 is extremely sluggish, much so that I had to remove it and use AS6. AS6 works perfectly. Perhaps our PC hardware is inadequate.

Well, maybe you can open the device and see which USB interface chip it uses.

Run the Device Manager on your PC.

 

Plug in your "device".

 

Does it appear as a COM port?

What COM# does it use?

 

I suspect that it looks like a COM port.   Just add it to AS7 as a "STK500" with that COM#

 

If the "device" appears as an USB "AVRISP-mk2" life is more complicated.    It depends on how well the Chinese have "cloned" the genuine Atmel programmer.

If it appears as a COM port,   I would be 99.9% confident that everything works like a STK500.
