Default Latest driver for Mbox 2

Hello everyone! I need to post this again as I was re-installing my OS and ran into a driver issue. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit. I just recently purchased the Mbox 2 and was very excited about it. To explain how it all began prior to the re-installation of the OS, I was able to update the drivers. There were 2 drivers that was found:

1. Digidesign Mbox 2 Audio
2. Digidesign Mbox 2 Midi

The Mbox 2 is connecting to the USB port and the light was successfully turn on. I decided to re-installed my OS (I wanted a new clean of my computer again) and now when I try to update the Mbox 2 again, this time it didn't find any drivers at all. All it says is:

"Windows could not find software driver for your software.
If you know your manufacturer of your device, you can visit its website and check the support section for driver software."


Prior to the re-installation of the OS, I was able to use the Mbox 2 with Cubase 4 along with my controller - everything seem to be OK. The main problem now is windows cannot find drivers after I re-install windows. Can somebody help me to download the latest drivers or a recent driver that would work with the Mbox 2 on a windows 7 64 bit OS I would really appreciate the help. Just lead me to the site so I can get the driver up and running, thanks.

Here is a spec of my computer overview:

Default Re: Latest driver for Mbox 2

I forgot to mention something. First I upgraded to PT 8.4 and wasn't able to get any sound out of it, then I switch to Cubase and sound works fine. Then, I reinstalled OS and now couldn't update Mbox 2drivers. So I'm thinking I might have to install PT 8.4 again and see if that will let me update back the drivers.

Also btw, I check inside device manage in the sound and audio section and I see Mbox 2 listed there. That means the driver is there right?

Default Re: Latest driver for Mbox 2

I finally got PT LE 8.4 open after upgrading from 8.0 wheew! Took a whole day to figured this thing lol. Anyway, I'm still having problem getting sound. Hopefully somebody be kind enough to help me out. PT doesn't use asio4all driver as far I as know. After configuring peripherals set to midi controller (M-audio keyboard) where do I set "received from" and "sent to." Based on the available options I have:

Predefined -> "Digidesign Mbox2 Midi In", "MIDIIN2 (USB Axiom61)" and "USB Axiom 61."

Here is the link to the screen pic:

http://img41.imageshack.us/i/pt84le.jpg/

As you can see there I have set to "Digidesign Mbox2 Midi In" and "Digidesign Mbox2 Midi out."

My Axiom61 is connecting midi in and out into my Mbox2, so I assume that should be the right way to set it? If not, which one out of the 3 choices do I set to?

Also here is the main DAW screen shot:

http://img59.imageshack.us/i/pt84le2.jpg/

As you can see in the first track, Midi input selector goes to "digidesign Mbox 2 Midi In", and output selector goes to "digidesign Mbox 2 Midi Out." Am I doing it right so far?

In the screen shot picture, If you look all the way to the right on the first mixer track, where do I set I/O audio input path selector to, and audio output path selector to? I did armed record the track and play something but I have no sound at all. It's being going on like this for 3 days. Has anybody went through this problem? How do you manage to solve this problem? Here is an update of my computer spec overview. I'm running windows 7 64bit with Mbox 2:
