  • I managed to find WCH341-Terminal in the middle of a crisis trying to get my cheap USB-RS232 to work. The application (to not be confused with a driver) worked off the bat, it is not a driver but a program. I could not believe it. If you go to System Information and USB and your USBtoSerial Adapter is showing up as USB2.0-Ser!

I have a new Mac mini that I would like to connect to my old CP/M box with an exiting RS232 console cable (yep, dumb I know) so I was planning on using screen.

+when I plug in the USB cable I get a message that a ‘new network device has been detected’ and suggesting that I use System Preferences to set it up. But in System Preferences it seems to think the USB to Serial adapter is a modem and is looking for a phone number and other configuration data.+
That's normal behaviour for a device of this type E., the OS is designed to see a serial connection as a network interface, you can simply ignore this. If the driver you've installed is FCP compatible and working correctly then I believe you should see your adapter as an available device control option in FCP.
