I can program the Fubarino mini with the chipKit IDE, but when its done I get a quick message which says installing new device, and right away I get a message that says device failed. I assume its using the FTDI driver and its failing. Any help would be appreciated.

No, it doesn't use the FTDI driver - mainly because there's no FTDI chip on there.

It uses the standard Windows CDC/ACM driver with its own custom .inf file.

Exactly how it's detected depends on how you have programmed it - if you have used the Serial object or not, and precisely which version of MPIDE you're using.

Take a look in the Device Manager in windows to find it when it says it's failed and see what it's telling you there.
