Serial port does not exist

Recommended Posts

Mac OS 10.9.5; MSP-EXP430G2; just downloaded Energia 1.6.10E18; installed MSP430LCPDC 1.0.3b drivers.

I installed the drivers and restarted my Mac. I was able to select the /dev/cu.art-XXXXX port, but running Blink gave me a long error, which ended in 

the selected serial port fet: identify failed
 does not exist or your board is not connected

Power LED on the launchpad works. I've had the board sitting on a shelf for about 3 years, if that makes any difference. I could not locate these drivers on my Mac to verify they were the right ones, but other forum posts leads me to believe that is the right port.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks.

Can you post the entire (orange) output of MSPDebug? The only way I am able to reproduce this is when I take the MSP430G2553 out of the DIP socket. Is the MSP430 seated correctly in the DIP socket?

It seems to be hooked up correctly.

Perhaps the only thing off is that I don't have all the jumpers connected as pictured in the msp430 guide on Energia's website.
