I'm using a Mac and am now trying to learn to do projects on a certain microcontroller from Renesas, the problem I have is that it doesn't detect the device on my Virtual Machine. I'm using a virtual machine since the software from Renesas only works on windows. I may need to add some packages since I'm using a general ide, but the thing is that the device doesn't even appear on the detected usb devices. The light on the microcontroller is lit so I think that's a good sign, and it's not the port either since if i try to connect my phone it's able to detect it.
try to check on the Mac itself if the device appears, even as an unknown device, if it doesn't then the problem comes before the Virtual Machine. Maybe check your connections? the chord? or the MCU port is damaged?
