Run the loop-back test (see sticky).


I am trying to do this, but am stuck at step 7. "Connect the terminal application to the serial port for your board.  The baud rate is irrelevant."  How do I connect the terminal to the serial port when the computer already doesn't recognize the serial port?

Is there a way to test if that is the case, or to fix/replace that component, or am I stuck buying a new board?

Note:  This is NOT a new arduino.  I have been using it for months, and when plugged into power, the code on the board still runs.

I can not get my computer to recognize my Uno in order to upload new code. I am running OSX Lion, and as far as I can tell, nothing has changed since the last time I uploaded code a few weeks ago. 

The problem is simple: the board is not recognized.  When I go to tools>serial port> the usual usb options are not listed.  I tried downloading the arduino ide on my wife's mac and the same thing happened, no usb option. 

The only thing that could have possibly changed is that I did run the arduino off of a diy solar charger kit several times, and I suppose it is possible that may have done some sort of damage, though there are no physical signs or other indications.  As I said, the board is running the current code fine. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
4  Development / Other Software Development / Alternative Text Editor for Mac with Syntax Highlighting? on: November 16, 2012, 09:13:34 am
I know that I can set "use external editor" in the preferences in order to use an external editor for my code.  What I can't figure out is how to get an external editor to do syntax color coding with the .ino file.  I have tried several different text editors that say they support C files, but the arduino extension is .ino, not .c . 

Can somebody recommend a text editor that uses syntax highlighting with the .ino, preferably for Mac.  Or tell me how to convert the .ino to a .c for editing, while still using the Arduino IDE for compiling/uploading?

Sorry for the n00b question, and sorry if the answer is completely obvious.  I have tried searching the forum and the internet in general, but haven't been able to figure it out.
