enter image description here A couple weeks ago I got my Arduino Nano after having experienced the Uno i wanted another one. The problem was that it wasn't ***** working. I searched a lot of the internet, but couldn't find a thing so that's why I'm here writing this post and stuff. I'm working on a Mac and I noticed something in the usb section, as visible above, when i plug in my Nano I get not a notification saying my Arduino is plugged in, but my computer telling me the driver has noticed "something". But the port itself is not displaying in the Arduino environment, but my Uno is!! I'm kinda pissed cuz I sent back another Nano before this but i was pretty sure that one didn't have the bootloader installed so let's just assume that's not the problem cuz the l led is blinking too.

Has anyone got an idea what is causing this and how I can fix this?

  • If 'Aano' is a typo for Nano please edit your post and fix it. Also, please edit your post and include the output from the following command, issued first after unplugging the Nano, and then again after plugging in the Nano: dmesg | grep -i usb | tail – James Waldby - jwpat7 May 26 '16 at 21:05

    I have lost track of the number of times I have asked this question: Is it a genuine Arduino or a cheap Chinese clone? Does it have a CH340G chip on it? – Majenko May 26 '16 at 21:34
  • @Majenko Yes it is a real one that's not the problem, I think I ran trough all the standard problems that occur to ppl – SpookeZ May 27 '16 at 11:53
  • Your bluetooth screenshot is irrelevant, so please remove that. What was the condition of your FTDI one? If it is when the board in question was plugged in, the basics seem to work. Or if it was when your "Uno" was plugged in, that board is apparently not what it claims to be, as the Uno does not use an FTDI chip. – Chris Stratton May 27 '16 at 18:34
  • @ChrisStratton The bluetooth shot was meant to show what it said without the arduino plugged in and no it indeed does not. But I think my computer's being a bitch and not the Arduino. – SpookeZ May 27 '16 at 19:01
