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

    • So I tried to install Mac OS X Sierra on my computer with the following specs :   - Intel Core i5 650 3.20GHZ - 12GB RAM DDR3 - 2 HDD (.1TB , 250GB ) - Nvidia Geforce 210 1GB VRAM DDR3   Everything was cool at first the installation went smoothly with no problems, after setting up everything I noticed that the graphics card has been detected by the systems but there is no acceleration and the resolution is 1024x768, I couldn’t change it   I tried a lot of kext drivers from multiple websites but no success, last kext crashes my os, I start getting black screen after the login page, and the computer restart it self immediately, so I decided to mess with the clover options to find if I can enable the graphics card from there, and WALLAA, the magic happened, I went to clover options then > Graphics Injector Menu > I checked : InjectNvidia option, and I checked : Use NVIDIA WEB Drivers   Note : I already installed Nvidia web drivers previously so you do that too before trying this method   After the restart it took longer then the usual to boot up, but once it got to the login page I noticed that the acceleration is working perfectly and the graphics has no bugs like before.   So until now everything is working fine and I’m enjoying my experience with Mac Sierra  
    • HI, I have the same issue. I have integrated Intel HD4000 and nVidia 620m. I tried with IGPEnabler, GraphicsEnabler and nv_disabled bootflags but none of them helped, it just got me additional kernel panic "AppleUSBHostPort: :disconnect: persistant enumeration failures". I also don't have option to turn off any of my graphic cards in BIOS.  Is there any solution to this issue?
