Default -6085 error

Ive seen many post on here regarding this error, but I am not familiar with the certain terms. Can someone guide me on how to get rid of the -6085 error, including an explanation of where the certain hardware pieces are located that I should address. I cant hear anything when I play midi (I am getting a signal) and once I push play it wont allow me to hear anything without the error msg popping up.


Mac OS X
Version 10.6.8

Pro Tools LE 8.0.1

Default Re: -6085 error

Unfortunately you didn't say which drive you are using but this may be the problem.

From Digi:

The Mbox 2 Pro is not compatible with FW 800 drives and will cause -6085 errors in Pro Tools LE. You should remove the drive from the system when using Pro Tools LE.

The Mbox 2 Pro requires a supported FW 400, ATA, SATA, or SCSI audio drive. Please consult our online compatibility documents for more information.
