'Hardware is in use by another application' error -1133 for m-box

Hello, I am trying to install pro-tools 6.1.1 with an original m-box and that is the error I get. I can't find what other application is supposedly using the digidesign hardware. Anyone have any answers?
Thank you
Steve

    Thank you. I tried reinstalling making sure the mbox was not attached to the computer. It still has the same error. I am loading actually 6.2 onto a Mac G4 laptop.
    Appreciate your suggestion. Any other ideas?
    1 thing I read was that possible there was something running in the background that was using the coreaudio driver but I have not been able to find anything else running, especially that would use digidesigns core audio drivers.
    ??? I want to record!

    I completely uninstaled the program and reinstalled it and still the same error. I did not individually uninstall the coreaudio driver though? I wonder if I would need to do that as well as the program?
    Thanks for tryin.

Make sure the box isn't connected to the computer while you are installing the software.

    If you can disable the coreaudio driver and reinstall it again that might work. There could be an issue with the setup since that is an audio device as well.



    I don't do much with Macs unless its a printer/network install. Only IPods,

    Id give it a shot. It could be an audio device conflict going on.

No sound output


Try looking for new hardware in configuration, maybe windows will find the right drivers. Otherwize try (free) driverbooster from IObit; I like this program a lot.
If this doesn't help I think your computer was originally a XP machine and there are no new drivers for your soundcard. Then you can buy an usb soundcard as a last resort.

DAE error -1115


You haven't stated your problem, aside from the error code. Please include the hardware setup, computer and Pro Tools version and plugins you are using. Also include your experience with the setup; was it working at some point? etc.


I run PC and Mac versions of this system, and I have had to go as far as to enter the computer CMOS setup to sort out problems. Pro Tools issues can be caused by many aspects of your hardware and software setup.


I know it can be tedious and time consuming, but have you tried to access the Avid (Digidesign) site's Q & A locations? You may have to do this if the solution to your problem is not immediately apparent.


Most of all, if you are not running properly registered software, with a user account on Avid, you are asking for problems here. Cracked versions of the program and plugins can cause unresolve-able problems.


Try these Pro Tools related sites to see if they offer some help.

Hi i have digi design rack 002 with pro tools le


Try the other port on the 002. If that doesnt work, I recommend trying the 002 on a computer that does have 400 to see if it will connect then.

If it doesnt, then you may have a couple blown firewire chips inside your 002. It happens, and can be fixed.

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

Installing Pro tools LE 6.7 on G5


If this was already solved, well, this will help someone else. My guess is your new G5 came with 10.4 or 10.5 and you possibly tried to install LE 6.7 or earlier. This will not work on these OSs. If you have 6.7 you can upgrade to LE 6.9.1 for free and this will solve you problem. If you have LE 6.4 you are screwed and will have fork over $75 to Digidesign to upgrade to 6.9.1...or upgrade to 7.4, which is actually kind of worth it.
