    Has anyone else had issues with USB on the new MacBook Pro 15" (Early 2011) models?

    The IOGear GUC232A USB to Serial adapter does not want to be recognized by the system. It works fine on any of the older MBP's.

    I have contacted IOGear support to see if they have an updated driver, but they have yet to get back to me...

    Argh! Forgot that I was running OSX in 64 bit mode...

    Does anyone know of a 64 bit Prolific USB to Serial driver?

    Filename?

    What did you use to find this file?
    I have a MacBook Pro and really need the new drivers for Lion.

    For those still looking for a driver, I went to the Prolific website and found the updated files for Lion (OS X 10.7).

    I've installed it on my MacBook Pro 8,2 (Early 2011 15" Core i7) and tested it with the IOGear GUC-232A. It works perfectly.

    Good luck!
