5.2.1 stopped recognising 5d after mavericks instalation

As title suggests, I recently downloaded 5.2.1 to use with my 5d as I am aware that is the latest version that will tether to it. I was using mac os 10.6 snow leopard at the time. I checked it was working ok with 10.6, and it seemed to be fine. I have now upgraded my os to 10.9 Mavericks and now it won't attach the 5d any more. Is there a reason for this, and can it easily be resolved?

Thanks in advance for any help and advice you are able to offer.

Beginning to think I may be between a rock and a hard place here. CO 5.2.1 is the latest CO to tether to my 5d. However, it is becoming alarmingly clear that it isn't recognised on mac os 10.9 Mavericks. So if this is indeed how it is, then unless I can find a way to downgrade my mac again, then it would appear I'm up the proverbial creek without the necessaries it would seem. :x

As you acknowledged, CO 5.2.1 is not compatible with Mavericks.

It does seem to be compatible in every way, other than the tethering it would seem. I guess this is Canons way of making me upgrade my camera. Well news for them.......IT WON'T BE FOR ANOTHER BLOOMIN' CANON FOR SURE !!! :!:

Similar issues with other camera brands, if that is of any interest for you.
