    The developer for MacDive is great. If you have any questions about using his software, don't hesitate to fire off an email. He's very accessible and always helpful.

    FWIW, I own the Sensus Ultra dive logger and love it. It works very well with MacDive. Since the default setting is a 10 second sampling interval, the dive profiles have a very nice resolution when downloaded to MacDive.

    I'm glad that things worked out, Lisa. Enjoy...

    Hi
    I have a Mares Nemo Air computer. I have followed all of your instructions BubbleTrubble. The driver appears in my System Profiler but when I connect and import data from my Nemo to MacDive, it still comes up as "error contacting dive computer"
    Any help is appreciated

    Some dive computers have to be set to a "data transmitting" state before the computer permits the download. I don't have the Mares Nemo Air, so I don't know if that's the case. On my Suunto computers, I have to enter the "TR - PC" setting in order to carry out the download. On the Mares, I think that you have to enter "PC Link" mode. The "error contacting dive computer" implies that either a connection is loose or the dive computer is not set to "transmit" mode.

    Things to check:
    1. Is the download cable connected to both your Mac and the dive computer?
    2. Do you have the proper drak cable?
    3. Did you install the appropriate driver?
    4. Did you restart your computer after driver installation?

    I believe that the Mares dive software is PC only. In order to troubleshoot whether the cable and the computer are functioning properly, you should see if you can get things to work on a PC first. Then move to the Mac OS.

    Good luck...

    Hi
    Thanks for the response.
    I had done all the checks you provided

    I got on a bit of a mission to figure out the problem.

    Got hold of Nick (MAcDive), tried various fixes including sending me a couple of apps to kickstart the Nemo Air.
    In the end it still could not read and he says in the next upgrade, he may be able to include the AIR,
    I was able to send him, the Data Logs with errors.
    Hope it happens, I like the MACDIVE Inerface.

    Again, Thank you.
