10.3: A quick fix for USB-to-Serial (MCT) support
Authored by: ganoe on Apr 13, '04 12:54:17PM

Thanks! This seemed to help with getting my Belkin F5U109 USB to serial adapter to work under 10.3. I haven't fully tested it yet, but it no longer says the driver is bad and I could get some of the lights to blink using PortTerm. The Belkin Beta 10.2 driver is here:

10.3: A quick fix for USB-to-Serial (MCT) support

I have the same Belkin adapter. I reinstalled the driver & used the two Terminal commands [Using the file path to the BelkinSerialDriver.kext]. I then rebooted & still got the same error. Exactly what did you do to make it work?

There seems to be a space missing between the "root:wheel" and the path to the driver in the second command.

I seem to get some e-mails from people on this, so I thought I'd provide more details. As I said, there is a space missing in one of the commands in the original message, plus the driver name for the Belkin driver is slightly different. The commands are:

sudo chmod -R og-w /System/Library/Extensions/BelkinSerialDriver.kext
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/BelkinSerialDriver.kext
Anyhow, I hope this works for you. No guarantees on my part, but it seemed to work for me. The Belkin beta driver website unfortunately does not seem to be available anymore though, so I hope the driver can be found elsewhere.

Thank you for the assistance and I have found a link to the Belkin OSX driver for the Serial-to-USB Converter at the following site:

The site also has a document that explains the installation process.

Thank you!
