now, the correct me if I'm wrong, but the firmware is the program in my
programmer is it not?  I have been have some trouble in programming my
pics lately I have MPLAB 3.12.  should I just upgrade the software, this
may sound stupid since I have been programming pics for a couple of
years but is there anyway to upgrade the firmware in my pic start plus?
thanks.

Sure.  Buy a PIC 17C44 (if I recall correctly), program it
using the PICstart Plus, & swap the new CPU for the old one
inside the PICstart Plus.  I'd buy a windowed part as the
replacement unit.

Microchip uses OTP parts (at least they used to) in the
PICstart Plus, so you can't just erase and reuse the old
CPU inside it.

My pistart+ has been giving me a HORRIBLE time lately I have the
firmware version 1.20.00.  Would this definately be the problem?  I have
to try 6 or 7 times before it will actually program and it incredibly
annoying. Thanks again.
