  • The cable given is a direct pin to pin cable like most extension cable. It could only work on a standard AVR programmer.
    A simple solution may be to plug the cable reversely on the programmer. I have cut a gap on the socket to force the cable goes in.

  • I have bought one. It come with a 10 pin cable (looks like DEV-09215). When I connect it to my ATmega16 header board which does have a standard ISP port, the programmer didn’t work (a typical “rc=-1”).
    Finally, I found that it was the given cable which caused this problem. When I use jump wire to connect the two ISP sockets manually, it worked.
    So, briefly:
    A Microcontroller with standard 10 Pin ISP Socket on its header board
    The cable that come with this programmer

    This programmer

    Does not work
    I’m sure my MCU header board is OK because I’ve used it many times. What I am not sure is which one caused it. Is it the cable, or the pin arrangement of the programmer?

No public wish lists :(
