I bootloaded an ATMega328p (the one that uses the basic Arduino bootloader). Then, I used the VP812 for dumping other programs written in C (in Atmel Studio).
The process of erasing, blank test, programming and verification are all working fine and it seems that the program is actually being flashed. However, when I insert the same chip (controller) back in the Arduino Uno board, the controller doesn't function as programmed. Also, I am not able to dump any other example sketches.
- Does this mean that the chip is damaged?
- Does using the bootloaded chip with VP812 cause such problems?
Also, I used the "Write Fuse" option with the standard fuse configuration (all marks checked) in the VP812 configuration dialog box. Did this setting in any way create the problems I am facing now?
