Please Help!

I'm very new to Arduino, however, not a total dummy, but I guess that's open for debate at this point  :)

I'm trying to upload the "knight rider" sketch to my board (a pre-created sketch). I cannot upload anything! So frustrating. I've gone through all of the driver installations...I tried the Arduino 0021 & 0022; both the FTDI USB drivers and the one specifically for the Uno (tried the FTDI because the UNO board is made by OSEPP, not sure if that matters). I've tried everything I can think of and everything listed on the troubleshooting page. Not sure what else to do.

Please see my "Verbose Output" upload below:

avrdude done.  Thank you.

BTW: Windows 7 32 Bit. It does turn on. It's running the standard "blink" sketch, I think (blinking every 5 seconds).

Thanks for your help! I'm really looking forward to getting this behind me so I can actually enjoy all the neat things people say you can do with this board.

Did you look at their support forums?

And yes you need the FTDI drivers. They are using the ft232 for serial.

You need to tell the IDE that the board is a Duemilanove not a UNO. This is a open-source copy that uses the duemilanove bootloader and FTDI USB interface.

Awesome, thanks for the valuable feedback. I'll check it out this evening!

Thank you guys! It's only awesome to be clueless when experienced people like yourselves are willing to help out.

I verified that the FTDI USB driver was in fact installed. I then selected the "Arduino Duemilanove or Nano w/ ATmega328" as the 'Board' in the Tools directory.

Poof, everything's now working wonderfully.

Thanks a million!

Great!  I only realized recently that the ID of the BOARD apparently is tied to or resides in the particular Bootloader firmware in a processor chip and is seen IF the USB interface is working...  I think.    Anyone really understand this??
