I’m trying to change my ride setup to FOC, but my BLDC tool does not recognize my VESC.
I’ve all ready tried changing usb cables and ports but the outcome is the same.
I had previously managed to configure my ride settings and had no issue at all so I don’t think it is a compatibility issue between my VESC version and the BLDC tool version. I have never updated any of them. I think it might be related to software update on my laptop. I’m using MacBook pro with macOS Sierra 10.12.6
when I hook up my VESC 4.10 HW and go to terminal and type dmesg (enter) I get something like below:
[937419.047632] usb 2-1.1: new full-speed USB device number 30 using ehci-pci

I just upgraded mine to the 3.33 firmware and using the new VESC tool has been working well as far as I can tell on a couple of small trips (new interface with wizards for motor and control config worked without a hitch too, took me a while to realize the write app was separate from write motor config for adding UART for metr support but otherwise good to upgrade too).
Hi! Yes, but still the bldc tool seems to not recognize the VESC.
The VESC seems to work fine, I haven’t had any issues while riding my board and the last time I updated my riding settings (one month ago) bldc tool was working fine, that’s why I think is more of a driver issue or something like that since MacOS last upgrade
