OS X Yosemite and Arduino 1.0.6

I've followed the advice in several posts -

  1. installed Java for OS X 2014-001
  2. restart
  3. installed FTDIUSBSerialDriver_10_4_10_5_10_6
  4. restart with cable plugged into USB port
  5. launch Arduino ver 1.0.6

I get this -

Tools > Board > Arduino Uno (complete list Uno checked)

Tools > Serial Port > /dev/tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port

I can't upload or communicate with the board, the error message reads -

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
enabled in File > Preferences.
Arduino: 1.0.6 (Mac OS X), Board: "Arduino Uno"
Binary sketch size: 2,618 bytes (of a 32,256 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

Any suggestions

Are you using a genuine Arduino UNO and which revision.
If R3 then you should not need FTDI, in fact most work just fine with out the FTDL, I have several MAC running Yosemite and run various versions of the IDE and have never installed FDTI.

If your UNO is a clone then your need for a virtual driver or special USB driver may occur but you need know what board your have a nd what USB interface it has.

Under about this MAC (pull down under the apple) open the system report and look at the USB area with the board plugged in you can find what is plugged in and if it is being seen fully.

As for JAVA which version is running 6, 7, 8

I'm using an Ardcore module, i'm assuming it is a genuine Arduino UNO.

Tools > Serial Port and now have 2 USB options listed, progress ...
