hello everyone,

I'm having what seems to be a simple problem.  I've done numerous searches and have come up with nothing, so I was hoping to get some insight by just asking. Smiley

So under the Tools menu, there should be a couple options to select a serial port that is called /dev/cu.usbserial-xx, but there is not - even upon plugging in the board via usb to the computer.  The board is getting power. 

Any insight on what the problem is would be great.
Do I need a certain driver installed?

thanks!

edit:  I'm using an Intel Macbook running OSX 10.4.8

Also,

I ran the setup command which claimed success - and upon doing so rebooted the computer to no avail -

however I've just come across FTDI VCP drivers. v2.1.7  - are these neccessary and if so where do I find them?

Ok I installed the drivers, and now the proper usb serial port is showing and it is selected - so that answers my question but brings up another.

Upon installing the drivers, and ran the setup command again - restarted the system and tried to upload the code - "programmer is not responding, RESET the board right before exporting"


hmmm . stumped - anyone?
