3) Programming software WinAvr chip using is atmega32a
4) Usbtinyisp has never been tested until now (collecting dust but no more then a couple of months)
Programmer light turns green and is recognized by computer as such [first attachment].
However after typing the command in cmd window i get the following error [2nd attachment].
Hard wire of programmer and micro controller[3rd attachment].
Wires are attached pretty sturdy and follow the pinout of programmer.
side note is i dont get a 5v reading using a voltameter across vcc and gound when connected to computer. (this wrong? possible due to switching of arduino cable?) or unspecified device?
