Can't get MySQL Connection part of tutorial to work?

Hi there

(MacBook Dual 2GHz 10.5.6 Dreamweaver CS4)

So after solving the mySQL login issue and enabling MAMP successfully, I now have another frustrating stumbling block.

I have not been able to get the "connWA" MySQL conncetion to work and I have followed the tutorial to the letter. (god you must hear that phrase a lot ;^))

IT gives me the following warning (see attachment 1) when I get to the final step and hit the "select" button to choose the digital_goods file.

NOTE: If I manually type the name in it allows the database to appear but it would appear it doesn't actually work, as when I click on "test" it gives the warning (attachment 1)

HELP!? I can't go any further and so desperately want to finish this bluesky thing!

thanks in advance
