Hello everyone,,
I am just starting out with my Arduino and trying to get it set up. However, after downloading the IDE on my Mac and hooking up the usb to the Arduino and attempting to run the initial blink sketch I get this error:



Arduino: 1.8.8 (Mac OS X), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Uno"



Sketch uses 930 bytes (2%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32256 bytes.

Global variables use 9 bytes (0%) of dynamic memory, leaving 2039 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2048 bytes.

Problem uploading to board. See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.



This report would have more information with

"Show verbose output during compilation"

option enabled in File -> Preferences.



I have selected the correct Board: Arduino Uno



but, where I think I'm going wrong is with my Port Selection. I only get two options for this and both seem incorrect. The options are as follows:

dev/cu.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port

or

dev/cu.MesAirPods.-WirelessiAP-1



Both seem incorrect to me, but I selected the first one. Is my computer not recognizing that I have a usb connected? Any help?



TIA

Is my computer not recognizing that I have a usb connected?
That's correct. You need to figure out how to get a port for your Arduino before you'll have any hope of uploading to it.

You might have a defective, damaged, or charge-only USB cable. Try a different cable.

If you have anything connected to the Uno like external circuitry or a shield, try removing it.

It could be a driver issue. To know which driver you need, you must figure out which USB chip is on your Uno. You can look at the writing on the large black chip near to the USB jack on the Uno. The common chips are ATmega16U2, and CH340.

Sometimes using a USB 3 port on your computer can cause problems. You could try using a USB 2.0 port or connecting a USB 2.0 hub between the computer and the Arduino board.
