Hi!

I'm trying to connect my Ardupilot MEGA chip to my mac (intel 64-bit, snow leopard, latest update/build). The status lights on the chip indicate that it is operating correctly, however, I never receive any prompts about a new network connection or new usbserial device.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks very much :)

The Ardupilot appears to use a FTDI chip for USB to Serial.  So you would not see the same kind of pop-up you would with a Uno.  (The Uno uses a Atmel 8u2 that emulates an USB modem.)

You'll need to download and install the FTDI drivers.
