I have some issues on my windows 7 64bit machine.

I have a Arduino nano which is working fine on a Windows XP machine. I can upload sketches and the loopback test as described at http://forum.arduino.cc//index.php?topic=73748.0 is working.

The same nano, the same USB cable, only now on my Windows 7 machine, is failing on me.
- The loopback test fails; The RX and TX leds are blinking when pressing keys on my keyboard in the terminal application. Only no feedback is displayed in the terminal application.
- Uploading is failing with the (not so famous): avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
(full output below)

Looks like my windows 7 don't want to receive any data back...

Driver info on the windows7 system (installed from the windows update):
Driver Date: 12-7-2013
Driver Version:
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher

Where did i go wrong?

avrdude done.  Thank you.


A downgrade of the driver solved my issue.

This worked for me as well on Windows Vista and Windows 8 for the Nano. Make this post sticky!!!
