Hi, I am currently working in Code Warrior 10.6, trying to program an MCF54455EVB board. For the moment I am simply trying to load a bareboard project onto the board via the flash programmer. However, when I do I usually get the output:

 

Error:  The algorithm was not able to run on the target or the flash is not configured properly.

Error:  Getting flash ID failed

An invalid preference was passed to the ColdFire GDI protocol(ColdFire GDI Protocol Adapter)

Error: The algorithm was not able to run on the target or the flash is not configured properly.

 

I saw a similiar problem reported here: TWR-K70F120M Tower Module: "not able to run on the target or the flash is not configured properly", however the solution in that case was to check the "always mass erase on connect" option in the "hardware or simulator connection" window. But my version of that window looks slightly different than what is shown there, and that particular option does not appear.

 

Also, after doing this once the connection seems to fail, and I start to get the output:

 

Error:  Connect Failed.

Can't connect. The Debugger can not connect to the P&E BDC interface or targetted hardware board.(ColdFire GDI Protocol Adapter)

Error: Connect Failed.

 

whenever I attempt to program the board. This problem is once again replaced by the previous problem when I turn the board off and on again.

 

Can anyone help me with this? I'm on a bit of a tight schedule and I can't even begin if I can't program the board.
