I used pony prog on a ATMEGA32 to correct the fuse byte setting to external oscilator, and after this wee operattion pony prog won't read it, won't write it etc. I think it took down the SPIEN fuse but I'm not sure... Has anybody ever had a similiar problem? How did you fix it?

There are pointy haired bald people.
Time flies when you have a bad prescaler selected.

Like SteveN said

Crystal resonators are those usually 2 legged ones, the common ones you'd probably want to use.

Cryrstal oscillators are those self supporting (4 legged) oscilattors and require an extra 3 or 5 volt power supply to work.

If you set the fuse to external oscillator the avr is begging for a clock puls right now .
Hack a old 386 computer, or something simlar, or just buy a 1 to 8MHz oscillator and connect the freq output (lower left pin seen from top side) to the XTAL In on the atmega.

its not dead, it just need a clock. After that change in ponly prog to some appropiate setting

One nasty thing in pony is that fusebits are inverted. so marked is a 0, and unmarked is a 1.....................................

SPIEN fuse can't be accessed in serial programing mode, that what Atmel says. And about the PonyProg there are a lot of posts here in the forum, you may search for this! I'm one of the persons that have an exeperience with Megas "locking" and PonyProg!
