I have an Arduino Nano connected via a USB cable (Type A to Mini Type B) to my MacBook Air (Mid 2013 Model). The PWR LED is on while the arduino is connected.
Opening the Arduino software, pulling down the
Tools > Serial Port menu does not show me a valid serial port. All I see is:
/dev/tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port /dev/cu.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port /dev/tty.Bluetooth-Modem /dev/cu.Bluetooth-Modem
What I've tried and did not work
I have installed the correct FTDI driver (v2.2.18). x64 for my MacBook Air's Corei5, file
FTDIUSBSerialDriver_10_4_10_5_10_6_10_7.mpkg. Restarted after installation.
Tried connecting arduino to both USB ports on my Air.
- Running Mac OSX 10.10 Yosemite
- Same arduino and cable work when connected to a Windows machine or a Raspberry Pi.
If it helps, I can see the USB Serial in my
Apple Logo > About This Mac > System Report under
Hardware > USB
USB2.0-Serial: Product ID: 0x7523 Vendor ID: 0x1a86 Version: 2.54 Speed: Up to 12 Mb/sec Location ID: 0x14100000 / 8 Current Available (mA): 500 Current Required (mA): Unknown (Device has not been configured)
I'm out of ideas and options. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance :)
