Thought this might be helpful.

My AVR DRAGON: Hardware Revision: 0x107, Firmware Version: 0x610610

BTW: The original HEX file was generated by AVRASM.EXE (from AS 4.19).

I also recently generated and tested with with two 32KB files. one filled with all 0x00's and the other with random values. Both programmed properly on my setup.

Thinking that missing data between unused address ranges was a contributing factor, I used srec_cat to fill in the missing address ranges of my original test file with 0x00's and again with 0xFF's to generate two separate full 32KB address files. Once again, avrdude + DRAGON_ISP failed.

Discussion is here: http://www.avrfreaks.net/comment/1916896#comment-1916896

Also, This error was confirmed by some one else for me. The specifics for his setup are AVRDUDE 6.1 with ATmega32 (non "A").

Hello:
As a further test, I recently ordered and received two (2) ATmega16A's. Using the same test conditions, but uploading a 16KB image to FLASH, I receive the same "verification error" as I did with the ATmega32A's. Again, the failure is complained about at the bootloader's selected address. The clock speed is 16MHz, external crystal. Here is the command line invocation and subsequent error message. 0x3e00 is the selected start address of the bootloader via the fuse settings.

avrdude -u -p m16 -c dragon_isp -B 500kHz -U flash:w:ATTOBASICV234_m16-16MHZ-uart_btldr.hex

"avrdude: verifying ...
avrdude: verification error, first mismatch at byte 0x3e00
0xff != 0x0f
avrdude: verification error; content mismatch
"

I will upload the original file for this one as well.

Peace and blessings,
Johnny Quest

Hello:
First off, I have done my homework on this matter and would not have posted seeking assistance unless it was a last resort. smiley

This message was posted on AVR FREAKS. http://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/atmega32a-avr-dragon-programming-flaky-ness

Background: Ex-disti-FAE for ATMEL as one of my support lines. Very familiar with ATmega48/88/168/328, ATtiny25/45/85, ATmega32U4, AT90USB1286 (and somewhat on the ATmega2560).

Development environment: Using Linux for development running AVR STUDIO in a "Virtual WINDOWS" environment. AVRDUDE V6.3 for Linux. ATmega32A, 16MHz external crystal, VCC = 5V (PwrSup is 1A capable). Fuses set for external high-freq crystal, bootloader at 0x7E00, bootloader reset enabled (lfuse = 0x8F hfuse = 0x96).

Quandary: developing code for ATmega32A; when using AVRDUDE to program FLASH using ISP with "DRAGON_ISP" programmer, AVRDUDE fails with:

avrdude: verification error, first mismatch at byte 0x7e00
0xff != 0x0f

-------------
Command line invokation is:

avrdude -u -p m32 -c dragon_isp -B 1MHz -U flash:w:AVR_Specific_Builds/m32/ATTOBASICV234_m32-16MHZ-uart_btldr.hex

-------------
All other ATmega devices program properly using ISP and JTAG, without incident, so I do not believe it is the DRAGON. The ATmega32A programs properly using JTAG with AVRDUDE and DRAGON, only ISP fails using AVRDUDE. Using DRAGON (1MHz sck) under AVR STUDIO, ISP programming is successful.

I have tried ISP with USBASP and USBtinyISP as well and they function correctly.

I have tried with V6.3, V6.2 V6.0 of AVRDUDE. V5.x versions fail to communicate with DRAGON due to "parallel port connection error" (?????DRAGON is USB!!) I have looked at the avrdude.conf for other "compatible devices" and found ATmega328p and ATmega329 are accurate. Using AVRDUDE "-F" switch produces the same verification failure with these two part definitions.

I have tried various "-B" settings for AVRDUDE to no avail.
I have tried using external 8MHz crystal to no avail.
I have tried using internal 8MHz oscillator to no avail.

I have four (4) NEW ATmega32A's, none are blown as I can successfully program all of them using JTAG, USBtinyISP and USBasp but using DRAGON_ISP, all fail in the same manner.

Chinese fakes? I do not see how as these parts do not look like it. They have ATMEL logo and date code of "1508".

Is this an AVRDUDE issue, an ATmega32A issue or combination of both?

Does anyone have any answers, ideas or clues to offer?

Thank you in advance.

Peace and blessings,
Scott
