Hi
Does any body knows how to upgrade the ATMEL STK200 Starter kit to support the ATmega* devices?

Thanks.

There is actually no need to upgrade the stk200 in order to work with mega devices as long as they are pin compatible with the devices on the stk200.

As for the software point of view, you must start using ponyprog software in order to program these devices.

It is only for software upgrade that KANDA sells for 7\$. You may need to use another programmer such as PonyProg if you like and don't want to pay.
But be careful with Windows2000 because there is a little problem with serial port due to difference OS architecture design for many softwares that are careless in design. (I think PonyProg fixes this problem)
