Hi,

I have a problem when I connect the board to my Win7. I press & hold the button then connect the USB. Then, I update the driver with the one downloaded from Atmel's web-site but it said "Windows was unable to install your AT32UC3A DFU"

Can anyone point me to in the right resources or advice?

Thanks.

Got my solution to this from Atmel's support.

I suggest anyone to do likewise.

Sure!

"To be able to use the AVR32's preprogrammed DFU class bootloader, you will need to install the Atmel FLIP software utility:

http://www.atmel.com/dyn/product...

Once installed, the device drivers for your USB DFU bootloader (for all supported devices) will be located in the directory "C:\Program Files\Atmel\Flip 3.4.5\usb" or, for 64-bit systems, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Atmel\Flip 3.4.5\usb". Installing this device driver through the Windows Device Manager interface will allow you to re-program the AVR32 device on your UC3-A3-XPLAINED kit via the batchisp.exe tool installed along with FLIP, or via the AVR32Studio IDE according to the user manual for your kit."

Where is the driver download page on Atmels website? I can't find the USB driver for UC3 A3 Xplained board.

They said its included in a getting started zip folder, but nope, its not in there.

I've got a paperweight until I can get a driver.

First google: http://www.atmel.com/tools/FLIP....

EDIT: this contains the driver for the DFU functionality
