thanks for that info modpro,so at moment only place to get these programmers are from patricks website(ic2005),they couldnt be purchased from any other source(ebay) or any place else,anyone have pics i might try and make up one myself,i have seen fpc sockets for sale on ebay,but only has six pins,ive seen on one thread that 2 of the pins are not used,would it be possible to buy programmer with icsp port and solder a fpc connection onto it,heres the one from ebay>
I just sent the correct shipping info. Thanks again Patrick. I will definitely have a unbiased review coming your way!
there are indeed only 6 pins in use of the fpc (has 8).
