I just purchased a barco reference cal V and I can't get Calibrator Talk to see the monitor. I am on a Mac. I have it connected via USB and loaded the driver. Any suggestions.
Did you verify that the USB port is active and the cable is working? Check under the Apple menu for "about this mac" then click on more info. Click on USB to see a list of active USP devices. If the Barco is connecting it will show up in the list. May not say Barco, it may say unknown device but it lets you see that the cable and port are working. If not replace them or try it on another computer. If they are working then the Calibrator Talk software may be configured wrong, have you contacted Barco? They have a troubleshooting area on the web site.

You need a simple LCD monitor attached to the monitor port on the back of the Mac. A PC Laptop is not a Monitor. Check your port connector type. Adapters are available.
Also... a Mac can be booted up in Target Disk mode which allows you to attach it to another Mac or PC via the FireWire port (not sure about USB Port) just like an external Hard Drive. Be careful not to erase or partition the drive though. Also a PC might not be able to read or write to a Mac Formatted drive. But it works great with other Mac's and allows you to get access to your files until your screen is fixed or an add on monitor is located.
Just reBoot your Mac with the "T" held down and you will see a FireWire Logo bouncing across the screen.
Use a FireWire Cable to another Mac's FireWire port and your drive will mount on it's desktop.
You are using a monitor created for use with a MAC, the only monopolistic systems manufacturer in the world. No one may make anything for MAC except MAC. That you are able to get something working is a testament to your tenacity.
Now, see whether you can use different cabling to connect the monitor to the MAC.
Use the DVI, or single round multi-pin connector between the two devices, PC and Monitor ... sorry, MAC and monitor.
With the digital signals more tightly aligned, you should be able to get the pair running in sync a lot more easily than with normal monitor to PC cables.
The MAC has been made to be a finer machine for the creative industry, so you must also be creative, and get the two working together using the right technology.
Hello sir, hi, you need to try another good working monitor, and confirm if the problem is your monitor or your Mac mini, or test your monitor on another mac, and see if the same symptoms appear. you now have an idea of where is the problem. let me know your progress
