COM 3 at 115200 Baud: ConnectedBootloader V2.1Target: 1E9608 C:\USERS\CODY\APPDATA\LOCALO\TEMP\FLASHER.DEFBuffer: 7168 ByteSize available: 64512 ByteProgram default.hex: 00000 - 01C00 failed!Program- Error
1. Bootloader and Vista don't get along
2.The only COM that works is COM3 (the others would not open a connection)
3. I'm not sure I put the bootloader in the right folder
Quote1. Bootloader and Vista don't get alongIt doesn't immediately work with 64 bit systems, which I'm guessing is what you have. See these threads for help with the Axon II and Vista.
Quote2.The only COM that works is COM3 (the others would not open a connection)It will only work with the com port that your Axon is connected to. Go to start->settings->control panel->system (icon)->hardware (tab)->device manager (button)->ports (drop down menu)and look for 'Silicon Labs CP210x to locate the Axon.
Quote3. I'm not sure I put the bootloader in the right folderTry using the same folder I did, in the exact same way, and see what happens.
Another weird thing happen as well:Ever since the first time I flashed the program and got the errrors the led display has been off. Today the display turned on for a little while then turned off. I'm not sure what did it.
(just a stupid check - your battery voltage is fine?)
I'm using a 9v battery and its running at 7.8V. That should be fine, shouldn't it?
I tried with 9.6v NiCd that I measured at 10.8v with no results.Do you want me to make a screen capture of what I'm doing?
The regulator doesn't get too hot
If I could find an XP machine would I just transfer the folder with the compiled code?
I'm not entirely sure what the limitations on the Sparkfun ISP programmer are, but it seems to be a budget type. I can't verify that it'll work with the Axon, perhaps someone here can try?
To use this programmer, attach to a Windows machine and install the drivers listed below. Open a command prompt. Assuming WinAVR (and therefore AVRDUDE) have been installed, type:avrdude -c usbtiny -B 1 -patmega328 -U flash:w:main.hex
