Sounds to me you have a common problem of the mbox 2 blowing the maximizer. i had this happen on one and fixed it myself by purchasing new capacitors and replacing the ones on the pcb board.you can actually change a few capacitors to make it alot better. such as a mbox one with the better capacitors

When i plug in my mbox mini 3 the blue light come on, but when i try to lauch pro tools it says that hardware is not recognize. When look at the mbox mini control panel, it says that it is not connected...


Assuming you are on a Windows system, go to Control panel/Sounds and devices/ and check that the Mbox2 appears as the default in the Audio and also Voice tabs/panes while unit is connected. If it is not, select it in each... if it is not in the list offered, then the drivers have not been installed for the Mbox.

Sound pops an crackels how do you change fse on mini mbox


Fuse would have NOTHING to do with the problem. Make sure to use balanced audio lines... XLR or TRS to mics or other devices.

Who Should Use this Update?

All Mbox Users with either Pro Tools LE (Mac) v.5.2 that shipped with Mbox, or

Mbox problem (no input,output)


i'm running os 10.5.6 w/ protools 8.0 and the original mbox. i had the same problem. protools opened and seemed to work except there was no sound from either analog outputs or headphones. this worked for me:
1. shut down computer
2. unplugged all usb cables except keyboard/mouse
3. restarted computer
4. re-plugged usb cable from computer to mbox
5. opened protools session
6. hit play and now i'm hearing sound and everything seems normal.

i hope this helps everyone else

I cant hear windows


Your Windows System Sounds and sounds from other programs are output from the computers preinstalled soundcard. When you use a professional sound card i.e Mbox (ASIO) you can search google for an ASIO player or plugins for Real Player (or WinAmp or Windows Media Player etc) that allow you to use as the output device.
