Can't get past: make program-minipov

by Kdees on Wed Jan 27, 2010 12:01 am

What di I do wrong?

Windows XP, tried a couple different USB/Serial adapters

My POV sequences through the LEDs when it's powered up, the LED opposite the conector flashes during the attemp to conect as does the "link" on my usb/serial, no lights on the one i bought w/ the POV:

C:\pov>make program-minipov
avrdude -p attiny2313 -P com3 -c dasa -U flash:w:minipov.hex

avrdude: AVR device not responding
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
this check.


avrdude done. Thank you.

make: *** [program-minipov] Error 1

C:\pov>

Here is my handywork, I've double checked my diodes:

Yes, checked and rechecked one is com3 and the other is com5 so i've tried both

it's unhappy if it can't open the com port. the led flashes so i believe something is getting through... like a knock but no one home

I even ran the delay up to 9000

we mean the big red box that says you need to use a special version of the software

Oh, Sorry, yes
I even went back and verified the two files that are in avrdude51a update zip matched what is in c:winavr/bin. I did have to search around a bit to find WinAVR and i have the latest release

should I try an earlier release?

Let me try on a different PC and run through the instructions again to be sure I did everything right... been having good success w/ your kits so far..

I may order a couple more of these for the grandkids and just see if we got a flaky chip.

I will let you know how I make out on another PC later,

Thanks for the quick help on this, not realy a big issue :)

if you could find a computer with a Real Serial port that would be ++ best

SOLVED!

First try on the old area 51 game box serial port. no way, no how, no port, on my netbook.
(Samsung NC10 /Atom)


What will we do one day without real serial ports...

I have a 232 converter can it be programed from Arduino's COM port?


Sorry for the bother...

sadly, you cant use the arduino to do the conversion

I dont have one, I am having the exact same problem, i made sure i did everything 10 times, the leds blink when i try to make (with minipov off) but fails before it starts and fails with minipov on too.

My minipov is running through the leds even when plugged in, i wasnt sure if it was supposed to do that too.

hi please don't post in multiple threads - it makes it hard to help you if the information is in 5 places!
