Hi, I'm using trying to install drivers for my M-Box but my M-Box isn't getting any power too it. Is it because the USB ports on my Macbook can't put out enough power or...? Have tried it on my Imac and powers up fine, anyone else seen this before? Any help would be appreciated!

The M-Box power requirements are probably too much for your MacBook to handle especially if you're trying to mount it when on battery power. If you've tried both USB ports and it won't mount, I would not attempt it any more. What you can do if you like, is to buy a dual USB cable for the M-Box or a powered USB hub.

Regards.

Thanks for reply mate, turns out the lights on the M-Box don't turn on until you have the drivers installed that comes with protools.

Glad u got it figured out, because I was gonna say something was wrong with your mbox cause I was using one on every version of the macbook and even dating back 2 the powerbook g4.

OT ... but is that an A26 in your avatar pic? My pop got a DFC flying one in night raids from JAB in Japan into N. Korea, 1952.
