avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x67
Upon further inspection I noticed that the port COM1 shows up in the Arduino IDE no matter what, whether the Microview is plugged in or not. When I went into device manager I don't see the device under other devices or under Ports, it just has Communications Port(COM1) all the time. It says nothing about an Arduino device. The Microview is getting power when I plug it into my usb port and I have tested the port with other devices and they have worked fine. I am on Windows 8.1 and have disabled driver signature if that info helps at all. I've tried re installing the FTDI drivers and also tried codebender but neither worked so I don't know what to do know. It just seems like my computer is not connecting with the Microview. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
UPDATE: Just tried the replacement usb programmer I got and it now works on my mac laptop so it must be something with my desktop computer. Tried again on my desktop with codebender but still no luck.
