Old Arduino... maybe?

Hi, i have a problem with the driver installation, maybe is for my old version of arduino…
i hope the attach in the post can explain something…

Mino92: maybe is for my old version of arduino...

Give us more details, old IDE or old board? Which board?

And... Where did the board come from? Got a picture or a link to where you got it from?

this one

http://www.ebay.it/itm/271531494649?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

That board has a CH340 USB to serial converter by WCH (as far as I can tell from the picture) the drivers for that are available from the chip manufacturer here.

Did you get that from eBay?

That does not look like an authentic Arduino.

You would need to post close up pictures of both sides of the board to be sure. eBay has a lot of fake crap manufactured in China.

The stuff made in China frequently isn't crap. For example the expensive Sony computer I am typing on. What is more, if it doesn't claim to be made by Arduino (it doesn't) it isn't a fake either. It is a clone.

There is no need to post additional pictures "to be sure". That board is definitely not an original UNO. The absence of the Atmega8U2 as the USB-to-UART bridge is evidence enough that this is a clone. Also, the words "Arduino" or "Made in Italy", or the Arduino logo are nowhere to be seen, which is even more evidence that this is a clone. There are several more evidences in that photo that make it clear that this is a clone.

ChilliTronix already stated that this USB bridge may be a CH430, which I agree, since 99% of all Arduino clones made in China lately are being shipped with that chip. Therefore all the OP needs are the proper drivers.

FYI, the original UNO SMD looks like this. Can you spot the differences?

I did not state that the USB to serial bridge "may be" I said it was. it is. I can spot one at 400 yards with a blindfold on. It is a good chip and judging by the driver issues with the genuine Uno R3 on Windows 8 a better bet that the the genuine one as the CH340 drivers are signed. Microsoft do like to be a pain. (I use Linux so am immune from driver issues).
