hi i went through the $50 robot tutorial and i am stuck at the programming part.
I am using the AVRISPmkII programmer, and I am having a problem connecting to the circuit. I am using an ATmega168 IC in the circuit and as i am using a breadboard, i checked more than 20 times that all the connections are correct, including the ones that connect to the micro controller..
I went through the programming steps, and when i pluged in the circuit to the programmer, BOTH the green LED's are on. When i try to connect to the circuit (tools>avrprogrammer>conect... or autoconnect), the window pops up after a few seconds saying, "connection failed."
What could be the problem? Both LED's are on, is it because i didnt follow the programming steps correctly, or the chip/ programmer has blow because of a short circuit?
Any Help is appriciated... Thx in advance
