I've long used my ISP MK-II (USB) with Atmel Studio 6, and software prior to that.

After installing a new JTAGICE3, the MK-II won't work with Studio 6.2.

I disconnect the JTAGICE3. Plug in MK-II. USB driver found, no error.
Studio lists the MK-II normally. I choose it.

But when I tell the Device Programming software to apply/use the MK-II, it says "Unable to connect..."

 

What I've tried:

unplug MK-II. Studio displays (disconnected)

uninstall the MK-II USB from Windows device manager, then replug-in the MK-II. Driver found, but same problem as above.

 

Ironic: I'm trying to use the MK-II because the newly purchased JTAGICE3 is intermittently flaky.

Boo-hoo. No responses.

 

Anyone else installed a JTAGICE3 then noted that the Atmel ISP MK-II won't work?

I have CAREFULLY avoided using old and new together, JTAG Mk3 used (once in a blue moon) only with AS6.x

 

JTAG Mk2 and other working tools restricted to AS4.18.

My MK-II worked fine with AS 6.2 until after I installed the drivers for JTAGICE3.

Who/how do I approach Atmel on this, as a support issue related to my purchase of JTAGICE3?

I guess you need to raise a ticket with support (from Atmel website I think now), they MAY be able to help.

I spent 20 minutes to file a support case. That system is FUBAR.

 

I hope I receive a response, and a competent one.

I don't possess a AVRISP-2.    I don't possess a JTAGICE-3 either!

 

But both are common devices.    I am sure that there will be several Forum members in your situation.

 

I would have more confidence in fellow members than "Atmel Support".

At least there are several legacy programs that should still work.   e.g. avrdude.exe and stk500.exe 

 

If you can get others to reproduce your problem,   it will give you more punch with your support ticket.

yes....

 

 

Any other forum members have both a USB MK-II and a JTAGICE3 and use Studio 6?

Yes but not together... wink simply don't trust AS6 with my JTAG Mk2 which I need to work with.

I have a MK-II ISP, not JTAG MK2.  And the JTAGICE3.

Do you use AVRdude with your JTAG MK2?

I am new to programming and cannot get power through my AVR ISP Mk 2 to a breadboard. I think it is using a Juno driver. I don't know what JTAGICE3 is, but I get the same message in Atmel Studio 6.2 (which I also recently installed and am not familiar with). I need help too.

@AVRCivEng5: please do not hijack other peoples threads. You have already made a new thread on the subject and an answer is given there.

 

stevech, can it be that you need to upgrade the firmware of the ISp MKII to be able to work with the newer jungo driver?

I do not have an ICE3 so cannot help you there.

 

I do assume you have done a restart of the PC to ensure the driver is loaded correctly. I have had intermittent problems in the past were after installs/updates windows did not complain about a needed restart, but things only started to work after a restart of the system.

 

Is the error message talking about not being able to connect to the programmer or the target?

Atmel responded very quickly to my on-line support request on this topic. They took the time to reproduce the problem in their lab.

Their response was -

In Atmel Studio 6.2, where a JTAGICE3 and an ISCP MK-II are both installed, when you try to use the MK-II, an error message says "cannot connect".  Atmel saw the same.

 

They say that if the MK-II had been connected to a target, it will still work.

 

The put this bug in a TODO for a future release.

 

I am impressed that Atmel responded promptly to this rather simple problem.

The JTAGICE3 is a $100 device that is both JTAG and ISCP for AVR and Atmel SAM ARM CPUs. JTAG lets you correct hosed up FUSE settings that the ISCP's like the MK-II cannot. But mostly, JTAG gives you interactive breakpoint debugging.

Jan 2020 -- Atmel Studio 7 -- Windows7 64b -- AVR ISP mkII and JTAGICE3 work perfectly well together, appearing in all menus, everything functioning correctly.  Can switch in menus, burn, and everything's great.  It only took 10+ years.  Maybe I should be daring an plug in my Dragon, too.
