I have followed the instructions and plugged in the serial port to my Mac. I have the new (blue) serial connector instead of the red one. when I plug in nibble makes a sound and lights up. the tx and rx does not light up so everything seams fine. the only problem is that the serial port does not show up. all I have is SOC, MALS, and bluetooth incoming port. what do I do to successfully locate the serial port??

Hi...Make sure you have selected the port of your Arduino board from the Tools > Port menu. Sometimes the port will be labeled with the board name in the menu. Other times it will not. If you don't know which port is your Arduino, you can find it like this:
Unplug your Arduino board from the computer.Tools > PortNote the ports, if any, listed in the menu.Close the Tools menu. The ports list is only updated when the Tools menu is re-opened, so this step is essential.Plug your Arduino board into the computer.Tools > Port - The new port listed in the menu is your Arduino board.
Have you tried different USB port and restarting your computer? Also try to find the port before connecting it with the NyBoard.
It's possible that you do not have the FTDI driver installed on your computer yet. Google it and install it, and try it again.
