Problem when uploading to Arduino Uno / UNO ( chinese clone)

So i have this Arduino Uno clone → UNO (chinese version of arduino uno)

It looks like this http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/ycUAAOSwzJ5Xaeen/s-l1600.jpg.

and I saw him on ebay here http://www.ebay.com/itm/UNO-R3-ATmega328P-Development-Board-With-Boot-Loader-For-Arduino-HR/252433666071?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3D3ff3bf3a9c8e49b296fed5bfdb58e393%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D251950623468

The problem that I have is that I can’t upload to it via usb.

I am new and I just get started with Arduino uno/Uno.

I have tried the methods from every post with the same topic.

I have properly instaled the driver for ch340, com port(COM4) is the same as port, hub and in the Arduino IDE 1.6.9 .

I have tried mutiple usb cables.

On the Atmel it writes MEGA328P and under AU 1550.

When i try to upload to it, using the big button (upload) or when i go to the Sketch->Upload it stays a while on uploading then return the error:

I have tried to reset it manualy when it starts uploading and the result is almost the same , it changes the resp=to something new

As someone sugested I tried changing the board to Duemilanove or Diecimila ( he told that he has a chinese vesion of UNO and it worked for him) but no luck for me.

The only thing I din’t tried is to burn the bootloader because I find a bit dificult to understand how that works.

So what do you think? Is it a problem with the bootloader?
It the chip burned?-in that case why- i did not short circuit
Is there an easy way to fix something like this is or is easy to toss it away and buy an arduino uno (original product)?

If you have Installed proper drivers, try these steps:

1) Check the Com-Ports (this is usually THE Problem) 2) Without USB-Hub 3) Try to press reset-Button while Uploading / short before uploading (had one Clone, which needed this) 4) Test another USB-Port

howto install right drivers

Fix that worked for me:

  • Select Tools menu > Board > arduino duemilanove.
  • Select Tools menu > Ports > [correct COM port]

Find correct COM port by checking Windows Control Panel > Device Manager > Ports.

  • Select Tools menu > Board > arduino duemilanove. I love you! this ^ solution worked for me!!! :)

Hi.

I buy a card from amazon and have de similar problem.

I solve it with press the reset button of the Arduino uno chinese when de IDE upload de compiled program.
