I’m using an Arudino Uno. I’ve been using it for a few months and it has been working fine until now. I tried uploading a sketch and received the following error:
Using Programmer : arduino
Overriding Baud Rate : 115200
avrdude: ser_open(): can’t open device “\.\COM3”: The system cannot find the file specified.
avrdude done. Thank you.
Problem uploading to board. See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.
I tried uploading the “Blink” sketch and received the same message.
I’ve downloaded the newest version of the IDE, and the Arduino is connected to COM3. Also, I’ve used two different Arduino Uno boards. Is it possible that the specified file is simply missing from its expected location? I’m not a great computer tech, just an average user. Any help would be appreciated.
