Please reply and don't look at how long the post is.
1. First, I want to check if I made the header on my circuit board for my robot right. Ok this is the top view.
. . .
. . . dots represent pins. Ok which one is pin 1 on the prgrammer cable that you plug in to your robot???
this is the cable
v = arrow here
top view (v is the arrow) This is when you look to see the holes which are dots . . .
| v | ______ . . .
is pin 1 the one on top with the arrow or the one on the bottow with the red cable?
2. When I plug in the programmer to robot and computer everything is ok. I click the connect button in AVR Studio and it works the first time. Then I click program and it fails when entering and exiting programming mode. When I change the ISP freq to 8 or 4 or 2 or 1 mhz, it puts itself back to 51.10 hz or something. It doesn't listen to me when I tell it to change it always goes the lowest it can.
3. Then I close the programming window and try to open it again but it says could not contact programmer.
4. And also it says the isp freq has to be 1/4 or less than oscilator clock which is gray and BLANK for me so how am I supposed to know what 1/4 of 0 is or blank? I'm kind of disappointed because I wanted everything to go smoothly since I got a very expensive programmer!
Thank you and sorry that this post is so long.
