Hi all,

My fist thread is about a problem, sorry. I'm having trouble programming the chip back to the first congratulations mode. I'm doing the make in initialload and I get this message. as far as the hardward I've cheked and re-checked it and it is properly conected. I should point out that it is programmed with the temperature file and I want to get it back again.

I left it there a couple months ago because my time consuming school and work and I have some spare time for a month and I want to learn as much as possible. Also if you guys have any suggestions about books or websites to learn how to program (because I feel I'm just following instructions so far) will be greatly appreciated.

Hugs and many thanks for the help. alt text

You have to edit the makefile so avrdude knows where the serial port on your computer is located (USB/serial adapter). The /dev/ttyUSB2 will need changed to COMxx where xx represents the number designated by your computer for the com port. This would make the line look something like this:

AVRDUDEFLAGS=-c avr109 -p m168 -b 115200 -P com10

In my example, the com port is 10. The editing process is explained a bit in more detail in your NK Guide.
