Error Code


This is an error that I have just gotten when plugging in a shield that has had no problem in the past! Any assistance?

Arduino: 1.6.1 (Mac OS X), Board: "Arduino Uno"

Sketch uses 8,716 bytes (27%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32,256 bytes. Global variables use 353 bytes (17%) of dynamic memory, leaving 1,695 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2,048 bytes. avrdude: ser_open(): can't open device "/dev/tty.usbmodem1411": Resource busy ioctl("TIOCMGET"): Inappropriate ioctl for device Problem uploading to board. See for suggestions.

This report would have more information with "Show verbose output during compilation" enabled in File > Preferences.

post your complete sketch

That looks like an issue with the com port and not the arduino code. Are you sure you have the correct port chosen? Is this a linux system? If so are you sure the permissions for that port are set right?


So I just re-checked for the 100th time that I had the right port selected. This time Nothing was selected and it uploaded once I chose the correct port.

Any idea why sometimes the port isnt in the menu?


It all depends on the OS and the port and the way things are set up.
