I've had good luck with the serial connection to keyspan and Mac.  
When in doubt, reset the newt, quit NCX sand start overt.

Yes I installed the driver and in the case of NCX I can only see three devices on the list, two of them are Bluetooth related and the third one is usbserial which is the one I’m suppose to use. I set the speed on NCX to the default 38400 but on the newton I just selected “serial” because the other speeds are higher and my newton is entirely new so I don’t think it has the drivers for that speed.

(There’s a package available on UNNA.org <http://unna.org/> that will update the Newton to 115,200 kbps transfer speeds. This is immensely preferable to any of the other choices.)

The Newton just says "The connection was stopped because there was no response" has anyone had any success with this combination?
