I first time try to work on AVRs(Atmega64).
When try to program it with Bascom11173 and STK200. It looks it work only first time, when I do some changes in fuse bits it then never again be connected/detected.
Now the device is no more detected by Bascom, also tried PonyProg2000 but could not succeeded.
My question is that is there any po

I was working with bascom and it's programmer.
I change the fuse bits (internal rc to external oscilator) and program it, but afther this
i couldent program any seems to be locked.But "RESET CHIP" button dosent work.
How can i solve this problem (Reseting My ATMEGA16).

actually i messed up with fuse bits of atmega 32l and now they are not giving me the way.....
how to erase and restore the mcu ..
simple chip erase using high voltage seriel programming also is not working

Every one when new to AVR got into trouble with fuse bits.
You should be careful while setting fusebits. Double check before writing fusebits.
If you messed up with fusebits then the avr wont behave as it should and you need a high voltage parallel (...)

needless to say the program did not work
Your considerations are not plausible. In fact, by connecting an external clock source to XTAL1, you get the oportunity to access an ATmega indpendent of the presently set oscillator fuses. See datasheet, "Serial Downloading", Figure 112.

The fuse bits available in each mcu model are described in the datasheet in the memory programming section.
The main fuses you need to set are usually the ones related to the clock source selection.
If you want to use the jtag pins as I/O then you need to disable JTAGEN.

You can program the fuse bits using usbasp.
If by any mistake you programmed wrong fuse bits, there is a chance that you have selected external clock instead of crystal oscillator and internal oscillator. I have faced a similar problem while programming an avr. In such case, you need to provide an external clock (around (...)

You can use this calculator
You have currently set your mcu to external clock so you need to connect an external clock source in the XTAL1 pin to reprogram it.
You can use another avr set to toggle a pin on/off as a clock or a crystal oscillator or even a 555 should do.

There is no JTAG in ATMEGA8.
Looking at the attachment fuse for internal 8MHz is correct.
Do you need bootloader which is selected for 1024 bytes in your attachment.

JTAG is a digital level interface only. There are no analog or intermediate level signalling. The typical non-isolated JTAG interface has pull-up resistors on most of the lines. If the PC side is driving the outputs as open collector, then you need to add pullup resistors to the PC side of TCK, TDI, and TMS.
