Default Mbox mini random popping and distortions as main pc audio device

hi there. I am running win8 but had the same issues with win 7.
i have a few re occurring problems with my mbox mini. i am having the issues while using it to run my normal pc audio, youtube, programs, games etc. it will start to go into a distorted state where i have to turn of the mbox and reconnect for the problem to go away. there is also loud pops that seem to happen randomly. It also stops working if i am away from the computer for a while (i have sleep mode off). This is fixed by again removing the power and reconnecting. I have just turned off power management on all USB ports to see of that helps.
any more help would be great thanks.

Post back if it you find a solution, however AVID doesn't officially support Windows 8 yet. I know you mentioned having the problem in Win7 as well, but running an unsupported setup isn't going to make life any easier.

Do you have the M-Box connected to a USB2 or USB3 port?

Can you post your full system specs?

Joel
