BitPim in Tiger
Authored by: rtarpine on Jan 21, '06 07:20:06AM

I had your error message. I think This port is active but not available for use means that the driver is not installed. In BitPim preferences, try looking to choose a com port. I have Serial (/dev/cu.usbserial) chosen. Under ports not available, there is a choice with "Prolific Technology chip" in its name; that might look like what you want, but it isn't. It doesn't use a driver, but is direct USB access. If you don't have the driver installed, I think that is all that appears.

There's a chance that Prolific's driver simply didn't work correctly yet on Tiger when you tried it. The second post here seems to suggest that (it's from last August).
