Using Arduino Micro from Arduino Uno

Hi All,

iI am trying to upload my arduino code I wrote for my Arduino Uno. I have already gone to “tools” and changed the device to Arduino Micro.

I’m getting the error message below.

What should I do?

The errors mean that your computer is not connecting to the Arduino Micro. Try pressing the reset button a few times and immediately uploading when you do. Or unplugging/plugging the board in, or choose a different port.

You need to select the port of your Arduino Micro from the Tools > Port menu.
