I installed the drivers for x64 and got this:

Device driver install

Notice it did not install the first one - USBSER.

However, I am able to upload code in the Arduino IDE so I went ahead and uploaded the CDC ECHO sketch and all went well there.

But Windows does not see it as a VCP:


Device properties

Driver file

Select device driver

Windows encountered a problem

What can I do in order to fix this?

Use this bootloader:


Make sure you have Arduino IDE 1.6.5+

Open the IDE, go to

File > Preference

then find "Additional Boards" URL. Then paste this link and then click OK.

Then go to

Tools > Boards > Boards Manager

and change the type to "Contributed" then install the "Digistump AVR Boards". Then change the Arduino board to the Digispark that you have and you're ready to go!

  • done all of that. if my posted images would work then it would be better understood.
