I’ve been struggling the past few days in connecting my Arduino Uno to my pc.
Stats: Windows 10 64bit
Intel core i3
Arduino Uno SMD R3 Edition
I got my Arduino 4 years ago in a starter package. It worked fine back then, I did all the basic programming. However, I’ve been trying to using it the past few days for a project but something is wrong with the connection.
#1 When I connect arduino to pc, TX,RX, and ON LED’s are on, except L on PIN 13, I remember it used to flash before.
#2 the ports section is never available to select whichever port the arduino is connected to, however at the bottom it’s defaulted to “COM1”
#3 When I try to upload a sketch regardless, I get this “avrdude: ser_open(): can’t open device “\.\COM1”: The system cannot find the file specified.”
I have even resorted to using a macbook pro with the latest IOS software and hooked it up to samsung s7 edge (using arduino droid app) and still the same issue persists, the board can’t be read, although it powers up fine. Is it a problem with the board at this point?
Thanks for the help in advance!
