No Serial Port for Mac


I am unable to get a Serial port for my Arduino Nano. Only port that shows up is /dev/cu.bluetooth-incoming-port.

It is made by a knockoff brand. I have a picture of the board attached. Light does blink when plugged in. I have Mac OSX Capitan Version 10.11.6. I have also downloaded the CH34 drivers for Mac, which did not seem to do anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have no idea how to connect to this. The error message I get is copied below. Thanks in advanced.

Hello Holdy97,

Thank you for sharing your question with Arduino community.

Based on the photo you attached, it looks like a counterfeit Arduino NANO board. This issue with the drivers on Mac is a common one with non genuine boards. I would advise you acquire a genuine Arduino board from our store:
