It sounds like you're trying to get Pulse Pal talking to MATLAB - you shouldn't need to update the firmware to do this.
However, since Arduino can't see the board, I'm worried that your drivers didn't correctly install.
From the device manager, do you see a "Serial Ports" category? If so, could you please share the list of devices you find there?
Also please list any "unknown devices" (I think in XP they're displayed with a yellow triangle)
since I need the Pulse Pal to generate a ramp and hold pulse, I was told by a colleague of yours that I could do this easily in Matlab, so yes I'm trying to get the Pulse Pal to communicate with Matlab. Th attached JPEG was taken after I had tried to uninstall the USB controllers, performed a restart and allowed the computer to re-install the devices. Then I attached the Pulse Pal into one of the free USB ports and checked the Device manager. When I right-click on the "Ports" and tell him to scan for new hardware, a balloon shows up in the bottom right-hand corner stating that "Found New Hardware. A problem occurred during hardware installation. Your new hardware might not work properly". And by the way, there are no "unknown devices" listed.
Hope this information is sufficient.
