Apparently I installed the wrong driver (prolific). The chip I have is a
CH340 or HL340 chipset, and from what I have read, it has no driver
available on OS X. Just my effing luck. I tried the same cable in a
windows VM with the correct driver, with Newton Connection Utilities,
and it connected, but whenever I tried to export my Works documents, it
got a "communication error (-1)". Is NCU still the preferred way to get
documents off the newt in Windows?
