avrdude: ser_open(): can't open device "\\.\COM3": Het systeem kan het opgegeven

I just bought a arduino but I get this error when I try to upload my code. How do I fix it?

Select the port of your Arduino from the Tools > Port menu. If that menu is grayed out or the port of your Arduino board is not shown then one of the following may be the cause:

  • You may need to install the driver for the USB-serial chip on your Arduino. Determine which chip is used on your Arduino and install the driver.
  • You may be using a charge-only or defective USB cable. Test your cable on another device to confirm that it works for data.
  • Using a USB 3.0 port on your computer may cause problems. Try a USB 2.0 port.
