Getting Verification Error with FTDI and sample program

by GUGLHUPF on Sun Feb 15, 2009 6:11 pm

Hi

I am getting Verification errors when trying to upload the sample sprite hex file onto the Fuzebox with AVRDude under WIN XP. [I am new to all this]

What is working:
1) Build it verification tests
2) Bootloader with Hello World shows multicolor and when I press the joystick shows keys
3) Can connect to the board via FTDI
4) LED blinks 3 times upon reset and I changed the setting for the FTDI to always to a reset

What is not Working:
- I am getting a verification error message when trying to load the sprite example and after reboot see the Hello World again
avrdude: verifying ...
avrdude: verification error, first mismatch at byte 0x0002
0x71 != 0xce
avrdude: verification error; content mismatch
[FULL LISTING BELOW]


System:
- Fuzebox kit from Aadfruit
- FTDI cable from ADAFRUIT
- AVRDUDE version 5.5
- WINDOWS XP


:Maybe someone can help me with this.

Hmm. Not sure what otherwise means. When I plug it in I see "Hello World, colored bars and when I move the joystick symbols like j,k and others show up."

Not much I can do as it stands being unable to program it.
