CC3D control board problems. please help


I have just built my first drone and cannot wait to get out and fly it. however i relise i need to program the control board befor i can do anything with it. however when ever i open my openpilot software (or Librepilot, i have tryed each) the copter will not connect.

i have tryed deleteing the drivers for the USB port however now it connects under the human interface device tab insted now and keeps disconecting.

i have tryed new cables, difrent ports. plugging the battry into my copter. but nothing seems to make a difrance.

please help. i am days away from just thowing it as hard as i can and useing my imagination.

thanks in advance.
