Getting a list of all USB devices connected.

Discussion in 'Apple' started by David Downing, Jan 20, 2014.

  1. I'm using Mavericks. Is here a way to get a system status report that showsall active devices connected to your Mac via USB ports?

    The reason I want to do this is that ever since I installed Mavericks, I'vebeen having trouble with the software I use to transfer pictures from my digital camera to the Mac. The software keeps saying "No camera was found." I want to see if it's a hardware problem. If a system status report showed no camera connected when the camera was connected and turned on, then that would mean it's a hardware issue -- like maybe a bad cable.

    The USB section of the System Report will give you what you ask.
    Launch the System Information app in /Applications/Utilities and click USB in
    the Hardware section.

    system profiler.

    the easiest way to invoke it is option-click the apple menu, or you can
    run it from the utilities folder.
    not all cameras support mass storage mode. those that don't require
    custom software.

    I just click the black apple at the upper left corner, then About this
    Mac, then More Info, then System Report.
