I've directed the driver updater to look in the driver folder (not the FTDI USB folder) for drivers and it just isn't finding them. Both the MEGA 2560 and UNO ini files are there but no joy. I've tried letting Windows find them online and as expected it didn't. The Com ports are reporting having the most up to date driver. Running Windows 7 in 64 bit on an i7 860 with 8G RAM Version 0022 of Arduino software Using a Freetronics Eleven which is an Aussie made "100% Uno compatible" board.
I really have searched the forums and FAQ's for info. I've read Getting Started with Arduino by Massimo Banzi.
I'm a complete newb at this but I've an 8 solenoid circuit on my breadboard and a program I've written to run it ready to go.
Please help me find the (probably simple) solution to my problem.
