USB driver for Mac OS?



  • I can't get my Mac to connect to the Duet2Wifi board by USB. It's a Mac problem. All ls /dev/tty.* shows is /dev/tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port.
    I've loaded and unloaded FTDI drivers.
    Switched the cable to every USB port.
    Used 5 different cables.
    All it ever shows is /dev/tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port
    How do you setup macOS for tty.usb? I'm running High Sierra 10.13.6

    Duet does not use FDTI chip as the CPU has built in USB host. See if you can find a Mac equivalent of Linux's lsusb command and share the output.

    Edit:

    The two first lines here are two Duet boards running normally.

    $ lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1d50:60ee OpenMoko, Inc.
    Bus 001 Device 006: ID 1d50:60ed OpenMoko, Inc.
    Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0424:7800 Standard Microsystems Corp.

    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    

    If the device does not have a firmware it will look something like

    $ lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 008: ID 03eb:6124 Atmel Corp. at91sam SAMBA bootloader

  • Doesn't appear like the Mac sees the printer at all. Would suggest a hardware issue, either with cables/ports or the board.



  • @bearer

    same thing on both iMac and MacBook Pro
    I've tried every USB port on both computers, and 8 different cables.



  • That leaves the board i'm affraid.

    If it still doesn't work then post the status after each step and maybe the admins will approve a replacement if its under warranty.



  • @bearer
    So it's not a Mac problem? Just wondering because I constantly have to reboot the Mac to get drivers to work on my other printers some times. But I've rebooted both the iMac and MacBook Pro several times in hopes of getting it to work.



  • It would surprise me, its not listed by lsusb, and in the other thread you were asked to use dmesg to see if the computer reacts to the USB device being plugged in at all.

    That all points to hardware failure; of course its still theoretically possible that both computers have damaged all the serial ports, but sounds less likely.



  • @bearer

    Left it alone for a few hours, came back and tried again. It works. Have no idea why.
