    "New External Device Detected". ?


    First, what a great Forum.
    I'd be lost without you folks, for sure.

    When I plug in (via usb) a software defined radio, and for other gadgets also, a screen
    pops up with "New External Device Detected".

    Really annoying.

    I can slide/move the icon of the new device that was
    detected to under the Mac icon, or to under the Windows icon.

    Then, after waiting quite a while, usually, the screen goes away, and the device that
    I have just connected works. Sometimes, I can't get rid of it.

    Do I have to live with this screen ?

    Are my only options to just slide the device icon to underneath the
    Mac or Windows icon, and wait, wait,...

    And, there is an "ALT" button to, apparently select the device, or,...?
    Doesn't seem to do anything.

    Might someone walk me thru how to handle this, please. (and for the ALT button)

    Hi, from what I can make out, that is an Apple-related message rather than Windows. (You mention a MAC icon). Are you running Parallels desktop?

    Connecting to the EV3

    There are references to that error message in connection with that.

    Someone familiar with this sort of environment will hopefully be able to advise you.

    Yes, I'm running Parallels on an iMac.

    Your comment is very interesting.
    I kinda took it fore granted that it was a W10 generated screen, as it appears when on the Windows side.

    But, perhaps it is from the Mac side, or even by Parallels ?

    Thanks for EV3 Link.
