Hello everybody,
since I use the rev. 1.03 I have a lot of trouble with my serial port #6.
It works a long time with upload and serial monitor without problems, but from one time to the other I get the error
" arduino serial port 6 is already in use "
I tried everything without success, even reboot doesn't work.

Any ideas?

Why did you post the exact same thing seven minutes apart?

sorry for that, I pressed the button accidentally.

I believe I have an idea for the problem:
if I kill the program MMscan.exe from the MobileMaster the port is free, although this prog. doesn't use the comPort !!!???

Well done.  I'm impressed that you so definitively found the culprit.  And thank you for the follow-up.

My computers do this,  often have to reboot arduino,   or pull the usb cable out,  or reboot the computer.
The serial port number seems to change often.
