I had this problem as well... If this is a 2011 macbook pro you have os 10.6.7 which is not supported by avid at this time. We actually need to down grade to 10.6.6. You installation cd with your macbook pro is 10.6.6, so you'll need to install that, then go to the avid website and download pro tool le 8.0.5. Everything should work fine just don't upgrade to 10.6.7 until it has been approved by avid. If you need detailed steps look at the avid forum for pro tools. Step to uninstalling and installing the os can be found on youtube.com... Do not have your mbox plugged in when you install pro tools. I hope this helps!!!

I can't get my Mbox2 to sync up to my MacBook Pro the green lights are on


Using Digidesign hardware involves an arcane recipe of the proper firmware, driver, and ProTools application versions, according to the subversion of the operating system. You have read that correctly: the viable brew of software versions can be influenced by even minor security updates to the operating system. Please submit a support request with Digidesign/Avid to sort this out; their tech support personnel are the only ones who have a complete understanding of how to resolve this.

I need an activation code for pro tools 8?


When ProTools is installed on a computer it needs to be authorized to work. This has to be done via a dongle, a socalled iLok . The authorization is done by www.ilok.com. You need a dongle with the authorized registration of ProTools on your computer to make ProTools work.

Assuming you are on a Windows system, go to Control panel/Sounds and devices/ and check that the Mbox2 appears as the default in the Audio and also Voice tabs/panes while unit is connected. If it is not, select it in each... if it is not in the list offered, then the drivers have not been installed for the Mbox.

Check if the Mbox2 has an echo setting that echos the audio from its input. If you want the audio to loop through the PC then it will have to echo there instead. Check that in "Sound and devices" of the PC are all set to transfer via the MBox for voice and playback instead of the internal PC audio system.

My mbox2 will not install no more on my hp windows7 64bit get message Proot8 not vaild exec of win22. tried to install with hp support but could not


There has been a virus (nesky) that pertained to Win22.... if there is a chance you have that scaan for it first.
If that isn't the problem POSSIBLY an anti-virus program or anti_spyware is blocking it. Disconnect from teh internet and disable ALL these anti programs and try installing the Mbox2 again.
Last method would be to try installing it in SAFE mode if nothing else works.

Download tata indicom 1*usb modem installer for macbook pro


TATA Indicom's installation was pretty easy as they provide the modem
drives for mac. But the guys from Indicom may try hard to convince you
that Plug2Surf does not work and mac and you need their dialer to
connect to the internet.

1. Download the Mac Drivers for Qualcomm CDMA MSM modem.
2. The zip file you downloaded has to be unzipped. You'll see two
files inside, one for the Newer Intel x86 Macs and other one for the
Older PowerPC Macs. Open the appropriate installation (.pkg) file.
(Note : Unplug the device before opening the file.)
3. Click Continue.
4. In the next window, "Continue" after the reading the license and
then click "Install" .
6. Now open System Preferences > Network. You'll see "Qualcomm CDMA
Technologies MSM" on the left side bar (or it pops up a window, that
it has found it). Click on it.
7. Type Telephone No #777 , Account Name and Password both internet.
8. Click on "Advanced" > Select Vendor : Generic and Modem : Dialup
Device. Click "OK"
9. Your Done! The "Connect" button should be clickable now and will
connect to the Indicom service once clicked.

SOMETIMES these systems require the software to be installed BEFORE the unit is connected to the PC.

Sometimes you have to install the software in "safe mode" to get it to work.
