BUT!, when i pug it in with batteries and cable connected, i go to and try to connect systematicaly and i get an ERROR saying "Programmer Not Responding COM 3" Check Cable AND Power can someone help me please, i really would like to master this system someday, and make great things with it..were do i start checking or what part of the manual should i be looking in???? my board is a picaxe28 and my chip is a pic16f886..
