View Full Version : [Arduino] Serial port 'COM1' not found.

December 31st, 2012, 02:58 PM
I'm trying to upload a program to an Arduino.
I get a error message saying:

Serial port 'COM1' not found. Did you select the right one from the Tools > Serial Port menu?

The Tools > Serial Port option is grayed out in the menu.

How do I tell it that it is connected through the USB and not a serial port?

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit, and the Arduino IDE v1.0 from the software center.

I tried it again and now it works.
I don't know what I did to fix it.

Thread marked solved.
