I had this problem before and I got it solved and I want to share it with you to eliminate this problem. On the Virtex-5 Board as you may see there must be two mini-USB ports; one of them is regular FPGA progreamming via iMPACT software and the other port is dedicated for programming via DIGILENT software and it is called the digilent usb port. There might be two reasons why you get this error. I mean using the USB cable:
1. The mini-USB tail was wrongly connected on the board, check it please.
2. Becareful if the iMPACT wizard is open and you did some trial with it before, the board will be confused to recognize the Digilent port. first turn off the iMPACT wizard if it is open and reset your board, then ONLY try with Digilent software. Please keep noticed that iMPACT and Digilent are two separate ways of programming the FPGA and must not be interrupted by each other.
Hope this can solve the problem...
