Uno wont sync up?

My Arduino Uno I just got from Amazon, sold by Osepp.com. I followed the instructions, yet when it told me to go to Device Manager and update the drivers from what I installed from the website, i couldn't find FT232R USB UART device with an exclamation mark, like the booklet says i should've found.

the uno from ossep does use a ftdi chip (its not a genuine uno)

what is the error you get? yest telling us it wont sync can have many causes

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00 Is the error i get when i try to upload the Blink example sketch from the example list. I get this same error with any other sketch. I only use the blink sketch because it was the one in the tutorial in the booklet, and i have not gotten to the later parts.
