Default Mackie M-powered driver

Hey folks, I am looking for a copy of the Mackie driver for M-powered for mac. It is the driver that makes ProTools 8 think a Mackie 1640i is a Profire 2626. This is the result of the licensing deal between Avid and Mackie before PT9. I had a Hard drive fail and now cant find a backup of this driver. I dont want to move on to PT 9 or above because I am still running 8 on my HD3 accel system and cant upgrade with out big$$$. Mackie wont release the driver to me but will reauthorize it if I can find it myself (go figure). Any help would be most helpful.

Default Re: Mackie M-powered driver

hi there guys
4 years ago i bought the mackie 1620i mixer with the intentions of using it with m-powered 8 (Which i also bought)

when i tried to get it all working both mackie + avid/digidesign told me that the driver was unavailable and each company told me to talk to the other.. and noone ever helped me.. meanwhile i had paid over 1300$ out of pocket...
its the biggest ******** ive ever encountered as a consumer..

if someone out there has the driver to make the two of them work..
please.. help me to use my mixer as i had intended.. which was the sole only reason i bought it.. to be able to use it as a modern 16 input protools interface..

i can arrange a "reward" for someone who feels like helping me.. please just talk to me.
