  • For anyone still struggling to get the drivers working with Windows 7 64 bit, just download the libusb drivers from BeagleBoy's post (first one). Unzip them, and run bin/inf-wizard.exe. It will generate an .inf driver file which it then installs for you. Windows complains that it doesn't know who made the driver, but it still installs and works fine.

  • It's rather annoying how the pins aren't wide enough to span the gap on a breadboard. It means that I have to connect it to the breadboard with just plain wire instead of a header pin like some of these. It makes it really unstable and a pain to disconnect and reconnect.
    Does anyone else have this problem/found a way around it?

  • I'm having the same problem as other people, but unfortunately after verifying my caps are correct I still have the problem. It was working until I ran the command 'avrdude -p m168 -P /dev/ttyS0 -c ponyser -U lfuse:w:0xe6:m' and the LED stopped blinking. My Atmega168 is now "not responding". I'm certain I have 22pF caps before my crystal, and there is ground going through the crystal (hooking up one lead to VCC and one to a leg of the crystal gives me ~5V). Does anyone know how I could save my Atmega?

  • I agree, I'd rather just have the breadboard.

No public wish lists :(
