    does it work??? i've been hearin mixed things

    right now i got a mbox2 mini and windows 7 64 bit. updated the software so technically i have pro tools 8.01 le. everything boots up and appears to work fine, but when i try to record it comes back with some hardware buffer error. i've tried adjusting the settings accordingly but no improvement. i know its not my processor/memory cuz i have a i7 processor with 6gigs of ram.

    does the mbox2 mini work as a sound card? could having a crapping onboard soundcard be the problem?

    I honestly haven't touched windows in a couple of years now. I use Mac so I really can't offer any more help - most of my audio friends are all Mac also. If you found some people online who managed to do it, start a thread in that very forum and ask for some help.

    Go through the digidesign compatibility guide, they will tell you what system settings you need to change such as turning off your onboard sound/disabling internet...etc

    It works

    ************IT WORKS************

    I made Pro tools LE work with WIndows 7 64bit. I have a HP desktop and a digi rack 002, with firewire port.

    1st. Go to the device manager and change the Firewire driver. it is something like IEEE 1394 Host controller. right click, update driver software, browse my comp for driver software, let me pick for driver soft etc:, And select the "legacy" driver.

    2nd. you need to go to the digidesign web site and download (Pro tools LE 8.0.3 Updater) you may have to subscribe, they just ask for a email , and user name.. you dont need any code or anything.

    3rd. YOu need to download Degidesign Audio Driver Setup(x64).exe, also from digidesign.

    4. Run the Pro tools Le 8.0.3 Updater, next run the Audio drivers, and you will up and running in no time.. Any questions send me an email beto1glez@hotmail.com
