Unable to load driver/s


I have just purchased an Arduino UNO from China which is shown as a UNO R3 ATMega329P CH340 mini USB for compatible Arduino WL. I have loaded the IDE software (ver 1.6.7) but I am unable to load the correct driver/s. With the software installed I connected the UNO and the PC (Win 7 Pro) went through the process to load the drivers but it couldn't find any. I tried to install them manually but without success.

I have the same problem with a second PC running XP.

Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong please?

I have also purchased a couple of AtTiny 85 boards that I want to use for a model railway project. Am I going to have the same problem?


Keyword are China and CH340. So try the CH340 driver ;)
