Topic: Arduino Mega 2560 MAC (Read 735 times) previous topic - next topic

Hello, I just got a new Arduino board and I can't get it set up. I Have downloaded the drivers for several Arduino's on my old computer which was a PC, but I have never downloaded on a mac computer. I read how to do it on the Arduino website, but nothing pops up like it says it should. Also I can't find a drivers folder under Arduino. Is that normal in a mac?

Any suggestions?

If it is a geniune Arduino, there are no drivers to install.  Where did you buy it from?

Also, Mac isn't an acronym, so there is no reason to capitalize it.

I just put a program on it and it worked.  Thanks!!!   I did not know it did not need drivers like the old ones.

It's not a MAC or mac, it's a Mac.

Capitalization matters. You may think I am nit-picking but wait until you start coding in C. :)

Agreed, Mac is shortened from Macintosh (or however it's spelled) as it's a name the "M" should always be capitalised.

I'm glad to hear it works, I've just moved to M.B.P and haven't tried it yet.
Sorry for the noobish post but my knowledge is 10 years out of date!
