I followed the below step to put 16u2 in DFU mode as description given by arduino 16u2 DFUguide.
1 assert and hold the 8U2's RESET line
2 assert and hold the 8U2's HWB line
3 release the 8U2's RESET line
4 release the 8U2's HWB line
5. confirm that the board enumerates as either "Arduino Uno DFU" or "Arduino Mega 2560 DFU"

after completed 4th step 'L' led blink ones.. may be it indicating that it enter into DFU mode but after this USB should detect and port should come as above step 5 ...but that is not coming so please guide me what should be i am missing...??

thanks..
