I am trying to program the mega8 using the UCmicrosys's UCflash AVR
programmer. I am using winAVR for this. However, winAVR needs me to
specify the kind of programmer type while making the makefile which i
need before i can compile my code.
Unfortunately, the UCflash programmer does not appear in the list
given. I tried using the BSD and interfacing my mega8 using hte LPT1
port. Unfortunately, the winAV was now able to open the LPT port. I
dont know why. I went through your parallel port interfacing book, and
i have tried everything including useport, lpt.exe, etc. I hace
checked my LPT port settings in BIOS and i have verifed the address.
My motherboad is Intel945 original chipset, which i beleive is
creating the problem.
Anyways, so I am back to the programmer for which i spent around
3000Rs. I am not able to undestand how to create the hex file using
WinAVR which i can uploadto the spftware module which came with my
Please help as i m totally confused right now. This is ugent.
