now i have no problems any more thanks!

go to the arduino.cc website. Get the USB drivers, I think you can find them under the getting started tutorial. In addition to the sketch software, you need to load the USB drivers and then it shows up as a new com port. That step is in fine print so it is not automatically loaded.
