Hello Everyone, I'm following the tutorial dynamixel_controllers/Tutorials/ConnectingToDynamixelBus and I cannot found my motor XM430

When I ran the roslaunch command I receive this:

In the tutorial /dev/ttyUSB0 is only an example port. Have you checked that this is the port your actual hardware is connecting on?

The simplest way to check is to type the terminal command ls /dev/ttyUSB* with the device disconnected and connected and seeing which port appears.

Yes, I'm using the correct port because I could do the read_write tutorial using the exactly same port /dev/ttyUSB0 But for this tutorial I couldn't.
