Port /dev/tty.usbserial-A4001bKo in use

Hey dude:

I use OS X 10.4.10. When i open "Serial Server",it show me the word "Port /dev/tty.usbserial-A4001bKo in use".So Arduino can't talk to Flash. Please help me....thanks


// I download "Serial Server" from here: http://file-error.net/1o1o1o1o1/?Physical_Computing_and_Interaction:Arduino:Arduino_VS_Flash

What else do you have running? You need to close the Arduino serial monitor (and possibly close the environment altogether) along with anything else that might be talking to a serial port (e.g. a PDA sync application or an over-aggressive firewall).

yeah,thanks for your reply.

actually,i close all the application, and I am even reinstall my OS X twice try to find the answer.

but it still not ok.

in my windows PC,it’s ok.

but in OS X,it’s not.

this scoundrels said:“Port /dev/tty.usbserial-A4001bKo in use”


Were there any files or instructions that came with it? With Processing, you need to run the macosx_setup.command script before using the serial port. This may require something similar.
