The NXT software, even the latest 2.1 version, is notoriously problematic on Macs. You will need to install the patch from Lego.

For the educational version the patches are at http://www.legoeducation.us/eng/Supp....cfm?paID=5645. If you have the retail version of the software you'll need to do some searching.

Re: Mountain Lion and Mindstorm NXT

Not a Mountain Lion issue, but are there any docs that explain the NXT terminal interfaces in labview 2011?

Re: Mountain Lion and Mindstorm NXT

Wondering if using a BT dongle might be a workaround. Thoughts?

Re: Mountain Lion and Mindstorm NXT

In my experience the NXT-G editor never gets far enough to download a program to the NXT. Usually it has problems on Macs loading in the first place. Bluetooth wouldn't matter in that case.
