Default Mbox / Le : What is the longest song length posible ?

Hello

I am using the new Mbox and LE 5.2.

I am attempting to record in over 60 mins of music (one act of a Show) but get an LE alert message after probably 30 mins saying that "hardware USB interrups have been disabled to long, try increaseing H/W buffer size" but this is maxed out at 1,204 samples.

How do I correct this ? Is there a limitation ?

Any help gratefully received.

Thanks PatG

-Pro Tools has a maximum session length of approximately 13 hours (depending on the session's sample rate).

What are the specifics of your system?

make sure the disk cache in the memory control panel is set to 512K and If possible, defrag your hard drive too. The error you've mentioned happened to me once or twice and it was all down to having the disk cache set to 6Mb instead of the recommended 512K, The error hasn't cropped up since.

hope this helps.

Thanks John

It is a silly question but does the Mac have its own defrag utility or do I need to buy a commercially available one ?

Thanks
