Hi everyone. I have recently purchased the HCDVBD0031 USBasp programmer from
hobby components. Since purchasing it, I have used Zadig to install the libusb-win32 USB driver:
and the correct signature for the programmer can be seen in my device manager:
despite this, whenever I try to use the programmer I get this error message:
I get this message regardless of which driver I use.... does anyone know why my IDE cannot find the USB device?
Do you have to select a com port to use this programmer?
Change the driver to WinUSB in Zadig
Hi both, no option for selecting the USBasp comes up as a com port and I have tried with the WinUSB in Zadig as well but no luck...
thanks for the responses, not sure why but it is now working using the WinUSB when it didn't work with it before! I managed to burn my bootloader and I can now upload sketches using the USBasp

I'm glad to see the issue was already resolved, but I'll leave a comment for anyone who comes later since this common question was mentioned in passing: the USBasp does not produce a serial port, so it is normal and expected that you won't find an entry for it in the Arduino IDE's
Tools > Port menu.
