This is the first time I'm trying to program the $50 bot and I'm having some issues with the programmer. when I connect the programmer to the usb port in the computer a green LED comes on, and when I connect the programmer to the 6 male pins another green LED comes on so I guess this means there aren't problems with the connection. when I go to upload the code, I get an error saying
"A problem occurred while executing this command. Make sure you are using the correct programming method. Current method is ISP. See command output for more info..."
It then gives me some tips about checking the ISP programming frequency.
In the command output I'm seeing this message:
"Setting mode and device parameters...OK!
Entering programming mode...FAILED!
Leaving programming mode...OK!"
it then exits programming mode.
I've tried adjusting the ISP frequency of the programmer but that hasn't worked
Also, what is the clock frequency of the atmega8?
