    Mine was working fine untill I installed the Mbox 2 Firmware updater and my macbook won't let me delete it. No uninstall function can be detected for this application either.

    I've installed ProTools LE 7.0 on my MacBook, but my MacBook won't recognize my Mbox 2. The LED light just won't illuminate. I have the same protools on my PC, and the MBox works fine on that computer.

How to import outlook files in apple mail?


PST Converter Pro (Mac/Win)
http://www.gladwevsoftware.com/pst-converter-pro/
Going the "freeware" way you will have to migrate to Thunderbird and then to Apple Mail ~ at least that's the only reliable way I know of.
Contacts are the easiest part as you can export them to vcard in Outlook and import said vcard(s) into OS X Address Book.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290840
Same easy steps can be made for the Calendar: In Outlook select "Save Calendar", for the data range select all and go ahead. You will get a standard iCalendar file (ics) which can be imported into iCal.

Transfer emails from apple mail to thunderbird (mac)


Apple's mbox files are non standard mbox files. Thunderbird cannot import these. Only Apple Mail can read these .mbox files.
The easiest way is to have Thunderbird simply import from Apple Mail. It's unclear what happened when you selected the import directly from Apple Mail.
Or you can go for application use. There are a lot of third party tools which deal in mail migration issues. One such application having expertise in migrating emails from apple mail to thunderbird is Mail Exporter Pro

Transfer olm files to apple mail (mbox)


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)
5. open mail
6. In Mail, choose File > Import Mailboxes -> choose .mbox file

Second:

You can use Exchange or IMAP accounts to have all the files on the
server, and then in Mail, but you would need significant storage space
there if you have a lot of e-mails.

Third:

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.
You can find it here: olmconverterpro.com

Thank you

Macbook wont recognize 500 gig My Book


Hi,

Having tried 2 cables you should now try it on a different computer. Chances are there is a failure inside the enclosure but you will know for sure if it also fails to recognize on another PC.

Once you're tried that, if it does work on the other computer the problem is corruption in your Mac, archive and re-install the Mac, if it doesn't work on the other computer then take it to your local PC shop or parts vendor and have them move the drive into a different enclosure for testing.

If it works in the new enclosure, buy it and your on your way. If it fails to work even in the new enclosure then you will need the help of a pro to get at the files, if that is the case, reply back with your Country, State and city and I will direct you to an appropriate pro.


Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris

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

Macbook pro does not detect digi 002 rack


yeah i have an intel imac and had the same problem. I upgraded to pt le 7.4 and now pro tools recognizes the 002 rack and it works fine, but still the core audio manager does not recognize the hardware. It says in "use" when I first turn on the 002 rack, then it says not connected after about 20 seconds. I don't think this really matters though because I have beeen able to do everything fine without having the core audio managr recognizing the 002 rack. I hope that helps
