Question about M-Audio Firewire Solo Audio Input
I am having problems getting a new M-Audio Firewire Solo to work on my Mac Powerbook (12" aluminum) 1Ghz 80 gig harddrive, 765 ram. I am running the latest OSX software. I loaded the incleded CD drivers onto the Mac and then shut down. I then attached the firewire cables and restarted. The M-audio showed the unit was getting power but the Mac kept posting that no M-Audio device was attached. I uninstalled the software and reinstalled, changed firewire cable and did the whole thing several times, with and without the power adapter. Always the same error message. I am wondering if the unit or the software is defective as I cannot tell what, if anything I am doing wrong. Thanks for your help in solving this problem. Jim
I just bought the Firewire Solo and had the same issue with my MacBook. I have OSX 10.5.6. The drivers that came on the CD were for earlier OSX version. If you go to M-Audio's website (www.m-audio.com) and then click on Support. Go to to drivers & updates, search by the criteria they give you for your specific system and then download. Although they don't currently have an updated version for 10.5.6, I downloaded 10.5.5 and it seems to be working, although I'm running into an audio input problem when hooking up mic and guitar....no sound. I'm thinking I'll just have to wait until M-Audio comes out for an updated version for 10.5.6. Hope this helps.
