I just got an Arduino Diecimila, plugged it in, set the serial port to tty and hit program with the basic analog in example and my computer was forced to reset. When I reset my computer the serial ports were gone. I reinstalled the drivers and that still didn’t work.
I then decided to update from version 7 of the software to the current version 11 and to also update the drivers and that didn’t work either. The FTDI serial ports still don’t show up.
When I try to program my arduino (whether it is plugged in or not) it says:
Binary sketch size: 1362 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)
processing.app.SerialException: Serial port ‘/dev/tty.usbserial-A4001cHT’ not found. Did you select the right one from the Tools > Serial Port menu?
I’m on a PPC mac G4. I don’t know what else to tell you or how to fix this. Suggestions welcome.
And why would it do this?
