Hi Razvan,

The easiest way to view the contents of the /dev folder is to fire up a Terminal and run the command

ls /dev

this will list all the contents of the /dev folder on your computer. If you want to view just the possible number given to your cable on your Mac you can do

ls /dev/cu.*

this will list all the items in your /dev folder that start with cu.

Hope that helps.

Hi Razvan,

It should be the letter 'l' not the number 1 in the ls command. If you can, please include a screenshot of your command line. If you are on OSX you can do Command+Option+4 to take a screenshot of a portion of your screen that will be saved to your desktop.
