did you install the Mac version of this?

CP210x USB to UART Bridge VCP Drivers

Found here

https://www.silabs.com/products/development-tools/software/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers <https://www.silabs.com/products/development-tools/software/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers>

Won’t work without it.

Also a generic programming cable probably won’t work either. Need to make sure you have the correct Baofeng programming cable for that particular model.

Hope this helps

I have a Baofeng bf-888s and started trying to program it using a generic programming cable with no success. The computer would recognize that something was plugged in but that was it. I bought a legit FTDI cable and now the computer recognizes it with all the information included so I believe that the Mac sees it... but using chirp I get the “errno2” error message when I try to download from the radio! I’ve tried drivers, this, that, and I honestly want to throw this Mac in front of a fast moving truck on the freeway! My Mac is running “high Sierra” 10.13.1 Please help!!!!!
