can\'t use my new drive "unauthorized"?????
 
I bought a new drive from the apple store (La Cie 60gig firewire) so i know it has passed all the product tests with apple. However, when I try to open a session it comes up with the old "can't find the audio file box". However, when I show it where the file is, it gives me an error box saying that the audio drive is not authorized???

What is up with that? It meets all the specs ie, 7200rpm and a seek rate of about 8.

So what do I have to do to authorize it? The only thing I could find was something about having the drive initialised with ATTO ExpressPro-Tools v2.3.2 anyone know if this could be my problem or how to do it. Thanks

The Express Pro Tools installer is on the LE Install CD. I pretty sure. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

I also believe Digidesign has it for download on this site.

I had the same problem with my LaCie (purchased from LaCie, though). I simply removed the LaCie Firewire Support driver, and let the default OS drivers take over. Works fine now.

HTH,
Jack

Yep that was it, thanks a lot. I just deleted the Lacie driver and restarted and everything works great.
