Couldn't get Atmega328P chips to burn until I read this excellent web tutorial

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share how I solved a problem with burning the bootloader to some new Atmega328P chips I bought from Digikey. I've been having no problem burning sketches to ATtiny84 chips, but was confused on why I kept getting no response from the 328Ps. Double checked the wiring a dozen times. Finally found this excellent web page, with helpful step by step instructions and useful arduino programs, including a self-contained boot loader . The trouble was the fuses had been set to require an external clock, which I fixed, as instructed, by using a clock signal from pin 9. In case anyone else has this trouble.
