My son has finally shown an interest in Mindstorms and we are trying to use an NXT block with my 2015 Macbook Pro (latest OS) running the EV3 Mindstorms home edition software.
I have read in many posts and Youtube videos that it is possible to program in the EV3 software and upload to the NXT 2.0 brick - with a few caveats for updated sensors not being included and etc.
However my problem is I just cant see to connect the NXT by either Bluetooth or USB using the 'connect' icon at the top left of the program window. The NXT is connected Bluetooth as shows in the connected devices list. The Wizard goes through the steps to connect but just wont find it under Bluetooth or USB and just sits there.
When I try and connect in reverse from the NXT block itself to my Mac - it can then see Mac but when I click on it - it says 'failed!' on the NXT LCD.
The NXT version is showing as 1.31
The software I downloaded is 'Mindstorms home' 1.5.0
