ARDUINO "Problem uploading to board. "

by Helen_Hats on Thu Feb 04, 2021 12:48 pm

I am attempting to upload the strandtest to my Flora (code on the back is 3720) with Neopixels (V3), and I am continually getting the error of "Problem uploading to board." the LED does turn green on the NeoPixel indictating a connection. My libraries are installed as well, running the latest Arduino program (Arduino IDE 1.8.13) on my Macbook Pro (OS 10.15.7). Also, I am a first timer, so if I am missing anything critical and obvious, please let me know!

First, do you have the board and port set correctly?

If so (feel free to post the output resulting from the attempt to upload) try resetting while it is trying.

I'm having a similar problem with my Flora..Arduino: 1.8.13 (Mac OS X), Board: "Adafruit Flora"

Sketch uses 6568 bytes (22%) of program storage space. Maximum is 28672 bytes.
Global variables use 181 bytes of dynamic memory.

Question: The board is not setup as the only port I see in my macbook is the bluetooth...

It soulds like your board isn't connecting.

Make sure you have a decent quality data USB cable.
