    According to the legend on the board, the jumper should not be in the 2-3 position, where it is only used for programming Tiny2313 only. You are using a Mega16 so the jumper setting is wrong.

    You can try moving it to position 1-2 or refer to the instruction manual of the programmer board.

    Can you show us a picture of your programming cable? It is plugged into your PC's parallel port?

    You cannot use just about any other programming software for the programmer because it will only work correctly with the software it is designed for.

    Your case is especially bad because I heard of no successful case of using an USB/Parallel converter for a programmer designed for LPT port. An USB/Serial port converter might work in 50% of cases if the programmer is designed for serial port.

    Where did you buy this programmer and is there a software coming with the programmer?

    You may try the following too.
