I hope you guys can help. I have both an Atmega8 and an ATTiny441 that will not enter programming mode. I keep getting "Error status received: Got 0xc0, expected 0x00" message. I have triple check all the connections, ohm'd out the wiring to the uC. I was using a USBASP, so I figured maybe that was the Issue. I purchased an Atmel-ICE and am still getting the same thing. The ATtiny is using its internal osc while the ATMEGA 8 has an external 8MHz crystal.
I have changed the ATTiny thinking may I did something to it with the USBASP programmer, but it does not appear that is the case. I am using Atmel Studio 7 and the Atmel-Ice. I have tried going directly into device programming mode. It will read the voltage, but will NOT read the device ID. I have tried bringing the clock all the down to 8khz up to 1 Mhz, same error.
Does anyone have any idea where I can look?
