  • I just bought one of these, and so far it’s been nothing but frustrating. I’ve tried in in Arduino IDE 1.5.3 (most current) on Mac (no drivers needed) and Windows 7 32-bit (with all of the driver gyrations from BeagleBoy’s post.

    I get the same error in both environments:

         Programmer Type : USBtiny
         Description     : USBtiny simple USB programmer, http://www.ladyada.net/make/usbtinyisp/
    

    avrdude: programmer operation not supported

    avrdude: Using SCK period of 10 usec CMD: [ac 53 00 00] [00 00 00 00] CMD: [ac 53 00 00] [00 00 00 00] avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1 Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override this check.

    I’ve checked the connections - first time I was using jumper wires, but I soldered directly into the 6 pin connector and it still fails. I don’t think this programmer works

No public wish lists :(
