Can't upload new games

I excitedly got my KS arduboy. I followed the quick start guide, and tried loading a few games with my mac. In the arduino software, I get an error saying

“Couldn’t find a Board on the selected port. Check that you have the correct port selected. If it is correct, try pressing the board’s reset button after initiating the upload.”

Under tools -> ports, I only have bluetooth under serial ports. I think the arduboy isn’t being detected…

The 2 most common reasons for this problem:

  1. Your Arduboy is turned off. :stuck_out_tongue:
  2. You’re using a USB cable that’s designed for charging only instead of a data cable. Try using another USB cable and see if that helps.

That might be a Leonardo bootloader Problem, there is a Busch of workarounds online, I had the same problem with my arduino robots (also based on Leonardo Chips)

The suggestions that @crait gave are good ones. The latest versions of OSX have arduino support baked into them.
