Question about M-Audio MicroTrack 24/96
You may need to reset your Firmware to the original.
Here are DETAILED instructions from M-Audio:
Instructions for restoring MicroTrack II firmware version 1.0.0:
If you have attempted to update your MicroTrack II with original version MicroTrack I (MicroTrack 24/96) firmware and now your MicroTrack II is not functioning, please verify the following steps:
Power the unit on, observe that the LCD says “M-Audio Booting Firmware”, and then random characters are displayed (sometimes “Max time per file:” or a “+” sign). The unit then fails to operate properly.
If the above description matches your situation, please follow these steps:
1. With the MicroTrack II powered off and disconnected from the computer/power adapter, insert a Compact Flash card into the device.
2. With the unit in the off-state, plug it into a computer.
3. The unit should power into USB mode and will show up as a mass storage device/removable disk.
4. Within the OS reformat the card. For instructions on how to do this, please see the “Formatting the Compact Flash Card” section below.
5. Copy all of the files included in the zip/DMG file, except the Readme instructions, to the root (top) directory of the inserted compact flash card (Do not put them inside of a folder).
6. Properly unmount the compact flash card from the computer (Please refer to your MicroTrack II User Guide for detailed instructions) and then disconnect the USB cable from the MicroTrack.
7. Power off the MicroTrack II.
8. Press and hold the Menu button.
9. With the Menu button held down, press and hold the Power button. When "Booting Rescue Disk" appears on the MicroTrack II's screen, release both buttons.
10. The MicroTrack II will now display the Firmware Update screen, reconnect the USB cable to the MicroTrack (the other end should still be plugged into your computer).
11. Press the NAV switch to update the firmware.
The MicroTrack II will show several status messages on the screen while the update is in progress. As each of the three stages of the update is completed you should receive a confirmation message that the stage has completed. First, a Bootloader update complete message, then an application update complete message and finally a resource update complete message. As the update is progressing, the four LEDs around the level controls will also flash sequentially. When all three stages of the firmware update are complete, the MicroTrack II will automatically shut down.
To verify the firmware update was successfully installed, power the device on and go to Main Menu > System > Version and press the NAV wheel. After the firmware update, it should now show the firmware version 1.0.0, resrouce file 1.0.0, and bootloader 1.0.
