Finding Device Drivers on a Mac

Finding device drivers for your Mac is easy! Start by clicking on the Apple menu in the upper left corner of your screen and selecting “System Preferences.” Once you're in the System Preferences window, select “ Update” from the list of options. This will bring up a window that will list any available updates for your system. If there are any available device drivers, they will be listed here.

If you don't find the driver you need in Software Update, you can also visit the website of the device manufacturer to download and install it manually. Make sure you choose the correct version of the driver for your Mac – some are only compatible with certain models and operating systems.

Finally, if all else fails, you can try using an app like Driver Booster to search for and install drivers automatically. This might be a good option if you have an older or obscure device that doesn't have readily available drivers.

Locating Drivers on a Mac

Drivers on Mac are typically located in the form of Kernel Extensions. The primary location for these is /System/Library/Extensions/, but they can also be located within an Application Bundle. To view the list of Kernel Extensions that are currently loaded, you can use the kextstat command in a Terminal window. If you need to unload a Kernel Extension, you can use the kextunload command.

Resetting USB Drivers on Mac

To reset your USB drivers on a Mac, you will need to restart your computer. Before the gray screen appears, hold down the Command-Option-P-R keys together until you hear the startup sound for the second time. Once you hear the sound for the second time, release the keys and let your computer boot up normally. This should reset all of your USB drivers back to their default settings.


In conclusion, the j5create USB Display Adapter is an effective way to expand your display and add a variety of ports to your Mac. Installing the appropriate driver may be required for optimal performance. To install the driver, you can go to the j5create website and download it directly from there. If you are having trouble with installation, make sure that any existing MCT_trigger2.kext, Trigger5Core.kext or MCT_Trigger5_x86_64 files have been removed from the Extensions folder, and then reboot your computer before reinstalling the driver from the website. With this simple process, you should be able to set up your j5create USB Display Adapter quickly and efficiently!
