FTDI USB serial port not working

Recommended Posts

Hello hackers,

 

I'm trying to make FTDI USB serial port available for OS X Macerick 10.9 guest (Niresh build). This is to run Otherplan CAM software under the VirtualBox, but the same port is used by Arduino SDK, which I also tried and got the same symptoms. Host OS is Win7 Professional.

 

When I boot the VM and open up list of available USB devices I can see FTDI FT230X Basic UART [1000] in there. When hovering mouse over the line it shows that the state is Busy. If click on it, nothing happens. If I click again, I get error message saying that "USB Device 'FTDI FT230X Basic UART [1000]' with UUID {...} is busy with a previous request. Please try again later". The device itself is then shown in the VB as Captured (but no tick against the line is shown), but I can't see it under the VM. Also the following is shown in the Details section:

 

Result Code:

E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057)

Component:

HostUSBDevice

Interface:

IHostUSBDevice {173b4b44-d268-4334-a00d-b6521c9a740a}

Callee:

IConsole {8ab7c520-2442-4b66-8d74-4ff1e195d2b6}

 

Neither Otherplan software nor Arduino SDK can see the port. The latter has 'Serial Port' menu item disabled, as if there were no ports available.

 

I have VirtualBox extension installed to enable USB 2.0 controller, and I can get USB stick working in the guest system, so it's doesn't seem to be general USB problem with the VirtualBox. I have FTDI drivers for Mac OS X installed in the VM as well.

 

Finally, I have tried various things suggested elsewhere, such as reduing allocated cores to 1 and creating an USB device filter in the VM settings. Neither seems to have made any difference.

 

Does anyone know what may be the issue? Also, as I am not that familiar with OS X, is there any detailed log files I can check (enable?) for any meaningful errors?

 

Any help would be much appreciated

    • I have searched all over and there is a LOT of info on what to do to install Mac OS w/e once you have set up the Mac VM. I am brand new at this so I may just be missing something very simple. How do I get from this... https://imgur.com/vQrLPXH To this.... https://imgur.com/RunPZ1C  
    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:
       https://github.com/xxx10101xxx/ThinkPad-X230-macOS/tree/master/i5-3320M

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
