The error codes are those from the underlying operating system.

It looks like your problem is that you're trying to write the literal value 0xff to one of the AVR memories. However it looks like you didn't use a completely correct command line syntax as evidenced by the line that says `avrdude: reading input file "0xff"` which I'm betting is not what you wanted to do. It would be very helpful if you also posted the full avrdude command line options that you're trying to run avrdude with.

As to your second point about error codes, I'm assming you're thinking that `128` and `-116` are error codes that mean something. That is, I believe, simply avrdude reporting the raw values it is reading from the AVR. This is not an "error code".

To your point however, when I was learning avrdude, the errors are quite confusing and it would be beneficial to all to clear up those confusions.

avrdude: Device signature = 0x1e930c (probably t84)
avrdude: NOTE: "flash" memory has been specified, an erase cycle will be performed
         To disable this feature, specify the -D option.
avrdude: erasing chip
avrdude: reading input file "0xff"
avrdude: writing eeprom (1 bytes):

Writing |                                                    | 0% 0.00s
avrdude: error: usbtiny_send:  (expected 128, got -116)

(The AVRDUDE Manual needs an exhaustive list of error codes. )
