# AVRDude not reading fuses in Eclipse with USB attached STK600

I can successfully burn programs using my USB connected STK600 through Eclipse/AVRDude.

From the command line, I can read fuses (using: avrdude -px128a1 -Pusb -cstk600 -v), but when I click "Read Fuses" from within AVREclipse/AVRDude I get the following error:

Programmer "stk600" could not initialize the target hardware.

Please Check that the target hardware is connected correctly

Reason:

avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1

Is this a bug or a setup problem?

Have you tried reading the fuses in AVRStudio?
