Default PT10HD and SSD drives over USB3, working for you?


I have an hackintosh running 4 HD cards and PT10HD, I have an add on USB3 card that has been working fine with regular spinning USB3 drives, now, with USB3 SSD drives the Pro Tools hangs :-/

Question is, anyone else having success using external USB3 SSD drives / Pro Tools 10HD in either a Mac Pro 5.1 or earlier or with a hackintosh?

Many of us are running USB SSD drives as audio drives on Macs and PCs.

Might help to know what exact SSD, connected to what exact port and with especially what file system on it and what MacOS version.

it’s a portable drive... does it work on other systems?
