So i have a Prusa i3 3D printer from China.  It is running on a MKS base v1.3 board.

I am trying to update the firmware and my computer wont recognize it.

In my device manager it lists it as other devices "FT232R USB UTART"

I have done everything i can to find the correct driver online but nothing is working.  Any advise would be extremely helpful.

FT232R for SERIAL connections requires a specific driver to connect properly.

VCP driver will create a USB Serial Converter located under USB Controller in the device manager. There should also be a USB Serial Port under Ports named COM(Default is 3). If both of these are not showing up, the drivers must be reinstalled.

Under the device manager update the USB Serial Converter first. The compatible drivers are located \Arduino\drivers\FTDI USB Drivers in Program Files. After updating, disconnect and reconnect the USB, and restart Arduino.

Sorry i'm kinda a noob here.  In device manager it is only showing up under "other devices" not under USB serial converter.  It doesn't look like it has assigned a com to it. 

Can you explain a little more in depth?

What the previous poster is telling you is that your FTDI cable that you are trying to use has a RS232 to USB chip built into that cable. The chip is already programmed as a generic device and is not specific to a particular computer interface, so it does not show up as a valid USB to Serial device in your computer.

For instance I have a FTDI USB to Serial cable I bought already programmed for a Microsoft Computer and it shows up as indicated by the previous poster as a com port and as a USB device. It is ready to accept serial information through the USB port. Not yours as it needs to be programmed.

See:  http://www.ftdichip.com/Support/Documents/AppNotes/AN_107_AdvancedDriverOptions_AN_000073.pdf

It gives you all of the information on those cables.

I have another USB to Serial cable that will show up as above but I do not know if it is possible to program that cable as I do not know the manufacturer and it only shows up as a USB to serial adapter and a com port 4 of which I can change by resetting the port and speed in Device Manager. you will have to give your  cable a personality by programming it with the FTDI driver already written by someone at Audrino or use the process set up by FTDI

I'm trying to install an MKS GEN L board on my Ender 3. I've got everything loaded and when I verify, I get this:

Arduino: 1.8.9 (Windows 7), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Mega or Mega 2560, ATmega2560 (Mega 2560)"

Seems to me Marlin can't find the files. I've verified there location, but Marlin can't detect the files.
