We did that. It’s a standard USB cable. It still fails. Not sure if the Duemilanove is still functional – it lights up, flashes, etc. But we don’t know any other way to talk to it.
To program the Peggy2, we attach a small FTDI board to it, connect the FTDI board via USB cable to the PC, and upload the programs from the PC.
We’ve never programmed any of these boards using any other mechanism other than a PC with a USB cable. We weren’t aware there was any other way!
