181  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Windows 8 Device Driver Install ERROR for INF file on: March 28, 2013, 09:01:14 pm
The signed drivers for Windows 8 are in the Drivers folder, not the Old Windows Drivers.zip file.

Right click the Unknown Device in Device Manager
Select Update Driver Software
Select Browse my computer for software
Click Browse button
Select the Drivers folder under the location of your Arduino software installation. (Do not select the FTDI folder inside the Drivers folder)
Click OK
Click Next
182  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Problem with arduino on a mac - no usb to serial port driver on: March 28, 2013, 10:21:34 am
It's not clear from your post if you have an Arduino or if you are using the Arduino IDE to program an atmega328 with a stand alone programmer.

If you are using the programmer to program the 328, what programmer are you using? That will determine what drivers you may need for the Mac.

If you are using an Arduino, what Arduino are you using?

The Arduino IDE package already comed bundled with Java, so you don't need to install another Java package.

1.0.4 is the latest and is perfectly fine on Windows 7 x64.

You might want to try eried's installer that you can get from this location:
http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,118440.0.html

It will simplify the installation of the IDE and drivers.
184  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino Uno 'unknown device' Win7 under USB ports. on: March 27, 2013, 10:03:17 pm
I have seen this type of problem a few times and it has generally been either a bad/low quality USB cable or a USB 3.0 problem.

Since you don't have USB 3.0 ports, I would suggest trying a different USB cable.

There have been numerous reports on this forum that have been fixed with different USB cables.

What PC are you connecting to?
Does it have USB 3.0 ports?

Windows is not able to enumerate the Arduino and will not be able to install any drivers until it can enumerate and get the device ID.
186  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino Uno 'unknown device' Win7 under USB ports. on: March 27, 2013, 12:38:27 pm
What is the Hardware ID for the unknown device?

Go to Device Manager
Right Click unknown device
Select Properties
Select Details tab
Change Property to Hardware Ids
What is displayed under Value?

Do you have XP Service Pack 3 installed on your system?

The UNO uses Windows built in drivers for usb serial comms (usbser.sys) and FTDI uses their own drivers.
It's possible you may need to get updated usbser.sys drivers, which are in SP3.

You can upload a new bootloader, but that requires an ISP (in-system programmer) or another Arduino to act as an ISP.

Do you have access to either of these?
191  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino Mega2560 can't be programmed via USB on: March 25, 2013, 03:42:33 pm
Can you post the sketch that you are trying to upload?

Make sure you don't have three or more exclamations points in a row "!!!", the bootloader will interpret that as an escape sequence and enter a special mode.
192  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: "Programmer is not responding" when uploading to Pro Mini on: March 25, 2013, 08:23:07 am
It sounds like it doesn't have the bootloader installed.

I would contact Sparkfun and see if you can get a replacement.
193  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: "Programmer is not responding" when uploading to Pro Mini on: March 25, 2013, 07:31:03 am
Which FTDI USB adapter did you use?

You need to make sure the one you have brings out DTR so that Auto-Reset will work during programming.

To test if Auto-Reset is the issue:
Hold down the Reset button
Continue to hold Reset while selecting Upload
When it says Uploading, release the Reset button.

It looks like you have not installed the driver for your Arduino.

Right click the Unknown Device in Device Manager
Select Update Driver Software
Select Browse my computer for software
Click Browse button
Select the Drivers folder under the location of your Arduino software installation. (Do not select the FTDI folder inside the Drivers folder)
Click OK
Click Next

You might want to try eried's installer.
It is based on 1.0.4 which has signed drivers, so you don't need to do the Disable Driver Signature Enforcement trick.

Download the installer packaged from this topic:
