Default pt 8 won't launch

Mac Pro quad core 5 gb ram
leapord 10.5.5 (updated combo 10.5.5)
PT 8
DIGI 003 rack

PT won't launch. New computer, new 003, new everything. I skipped the 7.4 install and went right to 8. When I go to launch 8, PT comes up, but when I choose a new file I get the spinning disk of death. At first it froze on the "config edit window" but now it freezes before anything gets started.

The computer started with 10.5.5, and I installed the 10.5.5 combo update.

Not having fun here.

Trash preferences, all Digidesign databases on all attached drives then run disk utility to verify and repair all drives then run the uninstall utility on the PT8 installer and then re-install program.

BTW where are you recording to?

I'm recording to an external firewire Seagate. It's used it on many previous PT 7.4 sessions with no problems.

Still won't launch it hangs after I try to open a new file.

Default Re: pt 8 won't launch

Is the Seagate FW400 or FW800? Have you tried moving the session to the internal drive, disconnecting the Seagate and opening the session, to see if it's drive related?

How is that drive formatted - GUID or Apple Partition Map?
