  • Cannot see Serial Port when using FTDI?

    I have assembled the "Arduino on a Breadboard" from the Arduino site and connected the FTDI as illustrated. I am using an iMac running OSX. I cannot get my Arduino IDE to display the proper serial port when connecting to the FTDI. When I use my UNO I always use serial port /dev/cu.usbmodelfd131. When I use the FTDI board I do not see this port available. Only the /dev/cu.Bluetooth-Modem and /dev/cu.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync ports show up. Note that these also show up when using my UNO but they do not work with the UNO either. If I do attempt to load a new program from the IDE I just get an error telling me that the /dev/cu.Bluetooth-Modem port is already in use (likely by my wireless mouse and keyboard). Any ideas?

No public wish lists :(
