USB Permission Error On OSX Mavericks

Post by jcl » August 27th, 2014, 10:56 pm

I am attempting to write some code to interact with a PM3/4 using Java and usb4java. Everything appears to setup correctly and it does identify the device fine, but when attempting to send commands I get the following permission error:

Code: Select all

javax.usb.UsbPlatformException: USB error 3: Unable to claim interface: Access denied (insufficient permissions)
	at org.usb4java.javax.ExceptionUtils.createPlatformException(
	at org.usb4java.javax.AbstractDevice.claimInterface(
	at org.usb4java.javax.Interface.claim(
Assuming it was the code, I tried using pyrow and get a similar error:

Code: Select all

USBF:    1476.883    IOUSBHIDDriver(IOUSBHIDDriver)::RearmInterruptRead  returning error 0xe00002c0 (no such device), not issuing any reads to device
I am at a loss on how to proceed at this point. I tried the kext loading/unloading with no success and some other suggestions from google. Hoping someone has seen this before and might be able to provide some guidance.

I think you have to use the HIDAPI. For python there is:
I'm sure that there is something similar for java
