Hi. I got a reallt nice STK500 board about 2 weeks ago. I have been learning AVR programming and enjoying it thoroughly. I am using AVR studio 4.18 with winAVR installed. Everything so far has been a success. I have been successfully following the Newbiehack tutorials using an ATmega16 to do the work. All tutorials have ben programmed and have worked. Tonight I was enjoying the 2nd tutorial on ADC when my board decided to stop connecting to the computer. When I click on the connect icon or the programmer icon, the board doesn't connect and avr studio goes back to the connect dialogue. Could someone help me in this matter?
I have been doing everything correctly, I am running the board on 15V from a breadboard prototyping device. When I power up the board, the last program still runs but the stk500 doesnt connect to the computer.. :(
I am distraught at this moment in time...it was all going so well.
Any help would be much appreciated.
