Protools M Powered only runs with M-Audio hardware. It should be in the package. Make sure it is connected.

According to this page Avid Recording Studio consist on M-Audio Fast Track USB interface and Pro-Tools SE Software:
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-a...cording-studio

If that's the case you should be able to connect the M-Audio Fast Track USB interface into your computer using the provided USB cable, install the driver from the cd (should work for Windows xp) and install Protools SE.
I don't know what else, have you tried searching for that specific error on google? You can also look for a more recent version of the Fast Track driver on google.

As far as I can see its the Fast Track 2nd generation and you can get the right drivers from there:
http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/d...-Track-Drivers
You need to scroll down a bit to the Windows drivers and I guess the 6.0.6 might be the one for you (Windows 7).

You also need to set up some optimization stuff within your Windows 7 system before installing Pro Tools. Check it out there.
http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/e...oting/en349411

There you find some basic info about Pro Tools M Powered Essentials.

To get to know your stuff a bit better you can watch those videos
(1st+2nd about the Fast Track interface, 3rd about how to record in PT M Powered Essentials).

You may find yourself more tutorials etc.

Important-do not record to/playback from the OS drive in your system! Pro Tools needs a 2nd separate hard drive for all it´s session
data and audio files. This drive has to be one with 7200rpm rotation speed at the least, no slower drives for the use with Pro Tools!
The most affordable drive you can use for the work with Pro Tools may be this one.
http://www.amazon.com/Black-Performa...nal+hard+drive
Put this into your Windows PC and you will be good to go (given you haven´t got such a separate 7200rpm drive already in there)!

So I hope you will have a good start into the recording world and lots of fun finally.

All the best and the best of success to you, VRW
