Title: My computer will not recognize my arduino board
Post by: iheartpotatoes on Oct 30, 2012, 06:13 pm
I am using Windows 7, and my board is an arduino uno. Whenever I connect my board via USB, it will only come up as an unrecognized device. I have previously connected the same board to a mac, and it worked just fine when I did that. What can I do in order to get my computer to recognize the board so that I can upload sketches?

you need to manually install the driver. (probabily you are on win7 64bit)
