I cannot seem to get my Arduino IDE to recognize my connection to the Arduino.
I was running OS X Yosemite before, and I was able to upload a few sketches inconsistently, but then it stopped recognizing the board. The console gave errors to the effect that the device was not recognized and that the port was being disabled.
I have since updated to OSX Sierra. When I check system report, my Mac does not appear to recognize the arduino, and I have not been able to get any response out of the console by plugging in my board. However, I ran USB Prober and did get this listing “Full Speed device @ 5 (0x14100000): … Communication device from unknown vendor” with a manufacturer string "Manufacturer String: 1 “Arduino (www.arduino.cc)”. Please look at the attachments of this post for full report.
I am not sure where to go from here, I have tried reinstalling the FTDI drivers and removing the Mac drivers without success.
