    There is something rattling around inside my mbox 2 and I can't figure out what it is, I need detailed instructions on dissassembling the casing so I can remove what ever it is rattling inside it, before it causes a short inside it.

  • Anonymous Mar 27, 2009



    I found two screws under the rubber "feet" of the casing and I did find the one under the CE label on the bottomof the box, but what else is there? The blue plastic front cover does not have any screws (at least not visible!)

    Is the abovementioned the same Mbox 2 Pro that I have?
    Mine does not have any "handle", so I didn´t find how to open the "allen key" part... Actually I didn´t yet find out how to open my Mbox.

    I have a bit of a similar problem and i have to get inside my Mbox!
    Could someone help me?

M-Box 2 Pro- 2 small black screws under rubber "feet" on the bottom(back)- 1 shiny screw under "CE" sticker on bottom- 10-12 small black screws under the faceplate sticker= DUMB- then one more small army of small black screws to get the faceplate off the metal casing-(remove carefully as there is a small ribbon connector from the faceplate to the chassis-pull up on small black sides where it connects to the faceplate.)- pop off top- reveals about a dozen small shiny screws holding the two "mother boards" together-left off there because I only needed to get to the volume resistor. good luck with the rest. good design too Digidesign.

There are five shiny screws and one black one located behind the plastic front label (the part that has the markings for the input levels and switches), plus three behind the serial number label, inside the handle part you open with the allen key. This removes the front panel, then, there are about twelve screws around the plastic casing, attaching the casing to the inner metal encasing.

There are three screws behind the foam strip on the metal casing, which attach a heavy duty metal strip to the inner casing... the rest are obvious.


This is how to deconstruct the casing in the event that something is rattling inside.

Keep in mind, if you still have a warranty on your MBOX 2, you won't anymore once you deconstruct it. So I don't advise it unless your device is well past warranty.

Though, if something is indeed rattling inside, I'm sure that's a breach of warranty conditions anyway.
You had best check on that first, but you might end up taking her apart anyway.

First:

Follow the steps and you will be able to import your mails easily
1. open outlook 2011
2. create a local folder
3. drag all your local emails to the folder we have created
4. then drag the local folder we have created to the lion's desktop (once it will finish, we'll have a .mbox file)

You can use software approach to solve your problem.There are various softwares available online for this problem. One I know is Olm converter pro.

MBox 1 Compatibility with new Macbook Pro Unibody and OSX 10.5.6?


unfortunately any pro tools application below version 7.4.2 is not compatible with leopard and I don't think you can use mbox 1 with the universal mac I may be wrong but I wanna say I tried a while back and even garageband wouldn't find it anymore but you can check for sure by going to the applications folder then open the utilities folder in there is an application called "Audio Midi Setup" and you can select the mbox in there if you see it but if not there is no patch or driver that I know of to get it working unless you upgrade pro tools which if you do upgrade I suggest getting mbox 2 and getting LE with it

PROBLEM KEEPIN MBOX 2 CONNECTION TO MAC LAPTOP


I have the same problem. Usually it will work when I reboot the computer. The trick is once you get the mbox working with the phantom power on, is to not turn off the phantom power during your session; the duration in which you use the mbox at that given time before shutting it down. You can switch the phantom off and it won't shut off, but if you press it back on, it may and for me more than half of the time it does shut off. I have a new problem with my mbox. I can't hear play back, even though I can hear sound from either input. Any suggestions?
