usbasp programmer issue attiny85

Post by gusisin » Tue May 21, 2024 11:14 am

Hi there I am sure it is me not you...

I have configured my device using ZADIG as shown in the file and I get the following message
avrdude.exe -c usbasp -p t85 -P usb

avrdude error: program enable: target does not answer (0x01)
avrdude error: initialization failed, rc=-1
- double check the connections and try again
- use -B to set lower ISP clock frequency, e.g. -B 125kHz
- use -F to override this check


avrdude done. Thank you.
I am pulling my hair out please can you advise me?

From the error message it looks to me like you have the driver installed correctly. The bit of the error message above is saying ‘I can’t talk to the device for some reason’. That could be for any number of reasons but will likely be one of the following things:

Something wrong with the programmer
A bad or incorrect connection between the programmer and the IC
A wrong configuration
A bad IC or something that is stopping it from working.

We have a blog post on how to link an LED with an ATTiny85. It’s using a USBtinyISP programmer rather than a USBasp but it may be worth a scan though it may help you sanity check your setup:

Could you also check that you have the programmer connected to your ATTiny85 as follows:

USBAsp (10 Pin IDC)………ATTiny88
1 (MOSI)..………....……...………..6 (MISO)
2 (VCC)................................8 (VCC)
3 (GND)...............................4 (GND)
5 (RESET).............................1 (RESET)
7 (SCK)................................7 (SCK)
9 (MISO)..............................5 (MOSI)


Finally, have you programmed anything in the past with the programmer? This would help to determine if the issue is with the programmer or not.

H thanks for the reply, when I connect using AVRDUDESS 2.17 I can do the following just fine
>>>: avrdude.exe -c usbasp -P usb -B 4.0 -p m8
Detected 1e930b = ATtiny85
Reading fuses...
>>>: avrdude.exe -c usbasp -p t85 -P usb -B 4.0 -U hfuse:r:-:h -U lfuse:r:-:h -U efuse:r:-:h
SUCCESS: Read high fuse
SUCCESS: Read low fuse

However, when I use the arduino IDE it all falls apart:

If you're able to set fuses ok then it’s likely your setup and programmer is working ok.

Wrt the Arduino error, it looks like it’s simply not seeing the programmer. One thing you could try is to enable verbose mode for uploading (File->Preferences->Show verbose output during: Upload check box). It may give you a little more information as to why it’s not working with the IDE.

Another thing I need to check is are you sure the programmer was purchased from us? I ask this because most other sellers of this programmer are shipping it with out of date firmware that doesn’t work with the Arduino IDE. We reflash them to the latest version for this exact reason.
