Upload problems

Hi All,

I am new to Adruino and having trouble uploading. Below is the error message I am receiving. I think it is due to the port I am using - There is only one option. I have downloaded everything requested in the manual. Any suggestions?

Arduino: 1.8.9 (Mac OS X), Board: "Rokit-SmartInventor-mega32_v2"

Sketch uses 10012 bytes (30%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32336 bytes.
Global variables use 970 bytes of dynamic memory.
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00

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.

If you don’t know which port is your Arduino, you can find it like this:

  • Unplug your Arduino board from the computer.
  • Tools > Port
  • Note the ports, if any, listed in the menu.
  • Close the Tools menu
  • Plug your Arduino board into the computer.
  • Tools > Port - The new port listed in the menu is your Arduino board.

Hi - Thanks for the Reply.

There is only one port option whether the computer is connected to the Arduino Board or not. I have tried using both USB ports on the computer and have downloaded everything suggested in the manual.

Any other suggestions?

This means your computer is not recognizing the board.

Make sure the USB cable is fully inserted into the Arduino board and the computer.

If that doesn't help, try a different USB cable. You might have a damaged, defective, or charge-only USB cable.

may be you should install a drive file

Right click > Update Drive Software, choose arduino folder
good luck !
