USB to serial converter will not link to Macbook

Have several laptops - with XP and Windows 7. Now have Macbook with latest snow leopard OS and Parallels for Windows .

Usb to Serial converter works on all the other computers linking to me sewing machine, but not the Macbook - driver is there - listed in the Windows partition and the Mac partition on macbook - but does not appear in Device Manager when plugged in. Have tried plugging in before booting computer, and plugging after - makes no difference. There is power because green light comes on ( on the converter) but does not connect my computer to the sewing machine ( the reason for the cable link) .

One other possible problem - the disc containing driver is a mini disc, so could not be used in the mac disc drive. I transfrred the files to a USB pen to transfer to Mac - all the files appear to be there.

It depends on the OS X version, but Apple's instructions for Snow Leopard, and previous, versions, are described or linked at OS Changing or resetting an account password Snow Leopard and earlier


However, the easiest route would be to contact the eBay seller for the password that they set.
