Hello.
I have had a problem to connect my Arduino Duemilanove for over a year now. I first discovered my problem when I tried to upload a simple code to it and got this error:
avrdude stk500_getsync() not in sync resp=0x00
It seems that my Arduino does not communicate with my PC. In the device manager it appears as just an COM-port and does not display the name. I tried to connect it to
3 different computers, but got the same result. After a lot of research on the internet for solutions which didn't solve my problem, I decided to buy an UNO and a new
USB AB cabel. When I connected my UNO it did not appear at all in the Device manager. I have tried both Arduino boards on different computers and cables without
any luck.

If anyone could help me with this frustrating problem I would be very grateful :)
Thanks.

Are you choosing the right Com Port in arduino IDE?
You must choose the board you have and the port under tools.
Debian,Mint,Ubuntu
Arduino Mega 2560
Arduino Nano
Arduino Duemilanove
MAC OS Montain Lion
Raspberry PI Model B

Yes, every time I have tested it in the Arduino IDE I have set to the right board and Com port if possible.
The problem is that the device itself does noe appear in the device manager.

Since not any of my computers recognize any of the boards proporly, I can't choose the
right option in the IDE.

No. When I have connected it to my computer nothing has been attached.
