Can't send data to MaxM

My MaxM is not receiving data from Arduino AT Mega.

Connections are exactly like this:

Arduino connects with BlinkM Sequencer with no problems but it seems changing color and or uploading new sequences doesn't change nothing on my MaxM, each time I power on MaxM it runs the default color sequence.

Is there any test I can perform to check comunication?

Monitoring Serial port on Arduino (instead of connecting sequencer) gives me this message : "BlinkMCommander ready"

I'm using:

Arduino Me ga (AT Mega1280)
OSX Snow Leopard
BlinkM Sequencer2 1.0 (tried with the old version also)
Arduino Alpha 0022

If using an Arduino MEGA, then the I2C pins (SDA & SCL, aka "d" & "c" on BlinkM) on located in a different location.

See this topic on how to hook up a BlinkM device to a MEGA:
