Post by: pikot on Oct 18, 2020, 03:28 pm
Hello i just bought my first arduino. Its an arduino uno. I tried a simple led program tutorial but i am unable to upload the program to my arduino. In tools i have selected board: Arduino UNO Port: COM 6 (the only one available)
This is my first ever sketch
I use version 1.8.13
Error message:

Arduino: 1.8.13 (Windows 10), Board: "Arduino Uno"

When you unplug the Uno, and then look at Ports, does COM6 drop off the list?

Are you sure you have a Data cable, and not a Power only cable?

What is the chip near the USB connector? MEGA16U2, or something else? Might need a magnifying glass to read it.

COM6 drops off after disconect,
The chip closest is CH340G, this chip is the second biggedst on the arduino and has 8 silver legs on each side
I am not sure about the cable
but this is the description of what i have bought 

WAVGAT high quality One set UNO R3 (CH340G) MEGA328P for Arduino UNO R3 + USB CABLE ATMEGA328P-AU Development board
