  • I have not had a good experience with this device, or avrdude. I am running x64 Windows 7 Home Premium. The drivers from Sparkfun are not digitally signed, and whether that caused my problems I am not sure, however after installing the SparkFun Drivers and rebooting my computer I had no USB support on my computer, at all.
    My mouse, Keyboard, USB Stick, everything I own would not communicate with my computer after installing the driver - it scared the hell out of me.
    I managed to repair the issue by running the Windows 7 install CD and doing a ‘revert’ - thankfully Windows had made an automatic backup before applying the driver, phew.. at least they got something right in 7.
    From what I have read, if you are not using Windows XP this device is not for you, spend the extra $20 or so and get the DigiKey device instead, you’ll waste more than $20 in time trying to get AVRdude to communicate with it.

No public wish lists :(
