you should really only need one of these.

it did not detect it as a serial port, just a generic device.  you  
might need a different driver.  Look to see if "ArkMicroChips" is a  
supported device.  Seems not.

look for /dev/cuaU0 once you get it recognized as a real device, not  
a generic object.
