JoyLabz Makey Makey Drivers and Work Arounds
If you go to your device manager and the board is showing up as an Arduino Leonardo, it's probably from JoyLabz. They have a different driver than ours => http://www.makeymakey.com/forums/index.php?topic=408.15.

Another customer responded with this:
They had to press the "upload" a few more times but it finally worked after following those tips from the other customer. A customer that I was helping had the same issue where it was a board from JoyLabz and they kept clicking upload and it finally worked.
