Recently, I received some Arduino clones, mostly from chinese webstores, that use the CH340G chip as USB-to-serial converter instead of the more common (and I suppose more expensive) FTDI chip:

ch340g_0

Windows natively does not support that chip, which is not automatically recognized:

ch340g_1

You must download the driver from the manufacturer’s website. Once unzipped, you can update the driver for that device:

ch340g_2

At the end of the update wizard, Windows will be able to configure the new COM port:

ch340g_3
Finally, here are the links to download the drivers for Linux, Mac and Android:
