I'm not sure but I think you're supposed to plug in the 9v battery when you connect to PC? IF I'm wrong sorry .
I apoligize for all the hell I raised in trying to get this to work. I feel sooo friggen guilty and embarrassed that is was something so simple.
Should I write it to the AT Mega 8 as Flash or EEPROM?
Ive checked and rechecked and rechecked and rechecked and rechecked (continue about 30 more times) and rechecked my soldering. Everything is connected to where it should be and nothing is connected where it shouldnt be. Ive got a regulated 5.15 volts between VCC pin 7 and GND pin 8. Ive got my AT Mega in its 28 pin DIP socket and putting the black lead(GND) from my tester on pin 8(GND), and the red lead from my tester on pin 7 and its reading the 5.15 volts. That tells me that the MCU is in fact getting power. All the connections go where they need to and no connections are made where they shouldnt.Based on this information, I am lead to believe that my MCU has been fried. Is there a way to find out if it is? the connection between VCC and GND is good, i know that... Is there a way to see if perhaps a different part of the MCU is broken? Are there certain connections I can check? Should everything have connection to ground or something like that?
