Re: Serial port not showing up.

Thanks Kevin! The new programmer arrived today — plugged it in and it was recognised okay! FTDI drivers were already installed from previous attempts on a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.10.5 w Arduino IDE 1.6.5 With the old programmer; nothing shows up under /dev when plugged in: $ ll /dev/cu.* crw-rw-...

I tried the trick as linked in a previous post of disabling the Apple FTDI drivers. Rebooted and started again, but no luck. Still not recognized.

Macbook Pro (13-inch early 2011), OS X 10.10.5

Re: Serial port not showing up.

Same issue here. OSX 10.10.4, FTDI drivers installed, but not getting anything when programmer + powered-on Ringo is plugged in. Nothing under /dev and nothing showing in Arduino IDE.

Re: Ringo pre-programmed behaviours + remote

Well we just got it and my daughter was excited to see what Ringo could do, so I'm a bit disappointed that they weren't "pre-programmed". I installed the FTDI drivers, but have not been able to get it to recognise that the programmer/Ringo is plugged in yet, so I guess that's the other pro...

Re: Ringo pre-programmed behaviours + remote

Does the remote do anything with Ringo out of the box?
