Burn Bootloader to ATmega328P-PU on a breadboard

by wrecks135 on Thu Jun 21, 2012 8:17 pm

I have an Arduino Uno R3 that I got here at Adafruit. I also recently purchased a ATmega328P-PU without the bootloader installed.

Can I simply use this setup to burn the bootloader onto the new microcontroller:

It seems like people have mentioned problems doing this with the Uno...is that correct?

I have done it many times, including using an uno R3.

I set this up as shown in the Arduino to Breadboard tutorial, loaded the ISP, selected Duemilanove w/ ATmega328 as my board, and then selected Burn Bootloader.

I got the following message:

avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"

Does anybody have any suggestions?

What programmer did you select? When you selected the USBtiny device, it will look for a USB port.
But when you select the 'Arduino as ISP' option, it will start looking for a COM port.
So double check what programmer you have selected in the Arduino software.
(When using avrdude to flash the IC manually, just give avrdude the right port using the -P parameter. (Capitol P !))
