I'm very curious how you came to that conclusion based on Jim's comment.

While Jim's suggestion will work fine, what I'm going to recommend
(again) is the opposite. As described in the link in my last message,
uninstall Apple's FTDI driver since it conflicts with FTDI's FTDI
driver. The goal is to leave only FTDI's FTDI driver on your system,
no conflicts.
