Arduino IDE + OSX + Pro Trinket/Gemma/Trinket + USB = Not Fo

by umlungu on Sat May 21, 2016 6:10 pm

Hi there,

I have the above configuration and am not able to see the port the Pro Trinket / Gemma / Trinket is plugged into in the Arduino IDE. I have tried version 1.6.9, 1.6.5, and 1.6.3 of the IDE with the same result.

Now, I have read a lot on the forums about other people having a similar issue, but this one is a little different. I am not trying to write to the unit (yet), I am still trying to select the port inside the IDE.

Additional things:

- The Pro Trinket (3v & 5v), Gemma, and Trinket are listed in the System Hardware Report and when I check the via command line with ioreg.
- The cable is known to be good. I've tried multiple too.
- I have tried a dumb USB hub between the device and the computer.
- I have tried a different computer running OSX 10.10 (previous version of OSX).
- The Pro Trinket port shows up properly in the IDE when I use a FTDI cable.
- I have tried 2 x 3v Pro Trinkets, 2 x 5v Pro Trinkets, 2 x Gemmas (Black), and 2 x Trinkets all with the same result.
- I have tried different USB ports on the computer
- I even tried a SMC reset of the computer, just to be sure

This used to work, (at least in Sept or Oct of last year).

I am completely stumped so any other thoughts or advice would be awesome. I would hate to think I have to toss the Gemmas and Trinkets. :(

Thanks,
Michael

Those devices don't use the com ports but show up as a programmer. Check out http://learn.adafruit.com or the product pages for more information.
