Import error serial port error code -5

Post by jarold » Mon Sep 28, 2020 1:30 am

Hi there, having an issue downloading new dives from my Mares Icon HD Net Ready

It worked a week ago & the only change I am aware of is I just updated to the latest MacDive desktop version.

I have logged out all other users & shut down & restarted the Mac, the dive computer is in 'PC' mode & showing charging from the USB port : 83% currently) but when I try to Import dives, having chosen Mares, Icon HD net ready I get the following every time (sorry I can't attach an image as it says the board quota has been reached)

Import Error

MacDive encountered a problem downloading from your Mares Icon HD Net Ready:

Failed connecting to dive computer on serial port '/dev/tty.VictoriasAirPods-Wirele' (Error Code -5)


I've checked all the troubleshooting & no luck there I'm afraid

Can you help please?

Ok. Unsurprising as nothing has actually changed related to the Icon HD in either of these updates.

Obviously it's the wrong serial port that it is trying to access. Check Preferences > Advanced and see if there is something more appropriate.

Thanks.

You sir are a star!

Thank you for the quick response & sure enough there was another port available & that did the trick!

Cheers
