Using Arudino in Windows7

hello everyone i have a upload problem with the Arduino Duemilanove ATmega168

when i tried to upload scripts, it is showing me like that

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51

windows7 is still basicly vista with a new skin. so the drivers should load fine. I think it could be because it can't find the arduino

go to serial port and check

you may have to restart the arduino software before you see it..

if it still doens't show up then, it's possible that the drivers for the unit didn't install correctly if at all so run "add hardware" from control panel and see if you get any results.
