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

I just purchased a new 15'' Macbook Pro Unibody 2.93 GHz, 4GB ram, running OSX 10.5.6. I am trying to get my Mbox 1 to function as my audio interface with Max/MSP, so that I can bring guitar and other things into the computer. I've installed all of Apple's software updates, and I just installed Pro Tools 6.9.2. The Mbox is still functioning with Pro Tools 6.9.2 on my Powerbook G4 running OSX 10.4.11. The Mbox is also working fine with Max 5 as input/output device on the Powerbook.

In the Mac Audio/MIDI Setup (on the new computer), I was hoping to see the Mbox listed as a Default Input and Output option, like I had before...but alas, this is not the case. In the Digidesign CoreAudio Manager, the Mbox is listed as Connected @ 44.1K. I checked for any updated drivers on the Digidesign website and didn't really see anything that seemed appropriate. Any thoughts?

Any and all help with this would be greately appreciated. I'm trying to work on compositions for school, and the solving of this problem would be a very, very big help to me. Thank you in advance!

    I can't get my MBox 1 to recognize with the new MacBook Pro in the audio/midi setup (doesn't have MIDI but still doesn't register as an audio device), however ProTools 7 recognizes it and records fine with it....just means I can't use it with Logic which I'd really like to do.

Black spot in my screen.


Unfortunately not. this is either caused by internal damage to the lcd or it could be caused by a light leak in the lcd. It needs to be taken to the Apple store if you still have the one year warranty or if you purchased an extended apple care plan. If not you can contact a local independent repair person.

Can i place a 4g and 2g stick in my macbook pro


Hello! The MacBook Pro you have mentioned can only support 4GB's total. 2GB's in the first slot, and 2GB's on the second slot.

What you may have seen by accident was that you can purchase either a 4GB kit, or a 2GB kit. Meaning a 4GB kit with 2 2GB sticks, or a 2GB kit with 2 1GB sticks.

Your best bet is to go with a 2GB stick in each slot to max out your MacBook Pro. 2GB's is the largest each slot can read.

For more information, check out the website below which has very detailed information on memory for various systems.

Hardware. Had a bad spill with a drop? Very unlikely you can have it fixed cheaply, but go to your local mac store and see if you can get it fixed.
