Just got an AVR dragon today from digikey. I'm trying to set it up on a windows 7 32bit machine. However, as soon as I plug it in, windows does not recognize any type of new hardware, it's as I didn't even plug anything in. No LEDs on the dragon, nothing. I have AVR studio 4 installed with the USB driver installed but when I go under my device manager and under "Jungo" I only see "windriver" and apparently I am supposed to see "Dragon" also, but I don't. Is this thing broken or what? I hope this is the appropriate forum section (the target chip I am hoping to program via JTAG is an AVR Mega2561), if not then feel free to move my topic

There's a thread in Tutorial Forum about making Jungo work on Win7 that may/may not be relevant? (it's possible that's only about x64 not x32 as well)

Only found something about jtag and that's for x64 copies. Even if I didn't have the driver, I still should be seeing lights when plugged in should I not?

I think that I had to install the driver manually with Win7 x64. You probably need to do the same.

Well it doesn't seem to recognize it on my friends XP machine either. Like I said though regardless of the driver, the lights on the board are not coming on. Doesn't that mean it's broken?

Return it for replacement.

Yeah digikey sent a new one, works now, lights up and now the driver shows up.
