I'm a first time poster with what I hope is a basic question. But before I begin, I want to apologize in advance if this issue has already been discussed and solved. I saw many related posts but none seemed to address exactly what my problem is.
Here's what's happening:
I have a Mac running 10.8.5 and what seems to be a genuine Arduino Nano V3.0. When i plug it into my USB port, the power light comes on and the L LED blinks.
When I run Applications>Utilities>System Information and look at the USB section, I see:
USB 3.0 Hi-Speed Bus:
Host Controller Location: Built-in USB Host Controller Driver: AppleUSBXHCI PCI Device ID: 0x1e31 PCI Revision ID: 0x0004 PCI Vendor ID: 0x8086 Bus Number: 0x0a
FT232R USB UART:
Vendor ID: 0x0403 (Future Technology Devices International Limited) Version: 6.00 Serial Number: A98Z3HL9 Speed: Up to 12 Mb/sec Manufacturer: FTDI Location ID: 0x14100000 / 4 Current Available (mA): 500 Current Required (mA): 90
I have followed the instructions to download the FDTI drivers and have rebooted (several times). But when I launch the Arduino IDE (1.6.4) and go to Tools > Port I do not see anything under /dev/tty* --The only ports I see available are /dev/cu.Bluetooth*.
Furthermore, when I look in /dev, I see a similar result.
So, can anyone point me to a fix to this problem? Do I need to remove Apple's USB driver for FDTI devices (AppleUSBXHCI)? May apologies again if this is a solved problem and I'm a moron for not being able to find it in the archives.
