Trying to program an Atemga8 using ponyprog and this diagram and settings http://www.hqew.net/circuit-diagram/Simplest-atmega8-programmer-Using-LPT-Port_13015.html Does not seem to work . Just get device missing or unknown device (-24). Checked the wiring, all good. So either it's the program or the programmer I guess. Any ideas, better program that can just use the lpt port? or different programmer, preferably one that you have used and can confirm working (there seems to be loads of designs). Also how to set fusebits? (assuming I get the program working) Says they should be set to high_byte=0xc9 low_byte=0x9f, ponyprog has a selection for fuse bits, but they are just check boxes. Says you can set them with ponyprog, but does not say how (of course it shows for others, but not the one you use ). Thanks.
