Kernel Panics
 
Hi all,

For the last, oh year or so, I have been experiencing random Kernal Panics on my MacBook.

I've installed a new hard drive, new ram, updated my OS & used Disc Warrior to repair Disc Permissions. I thought it was all good until my Mac crashed again.

After posting my crash logs on Apples discussion boards, it seems my MBox might be the culprit.

Of course, I can't work without it, so I came here looking for help.

Can anyone recommend troubleshooting ideas, such as removing certain plugins & then reinstalling them that might help me out here? Is this a common issue for anyone else? Is there any sort of firmware update I can do?


Truth be told, I haven't used ProTools in over a year and feel a little out of the loop. I just today seen that there is an update available. Should I install that first? I do plan on using PT again very soon and need this crash issue fixed.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Which OS version? Which Pro Tools version?

My apologies. When I signed up to post on the forum and gave that information I assumed it was shown in each post.

OS X 10.6.6 and ProTools LE 8.0.3

You should download and install the cs2 update:

Fixed: Kernel Panic when shutting down Mac if Mbox 2 was disconnected previously (Item #56617)
Mac computers would kernel panic (crash) on shut down if the computer was started with an Mbox 2 USB device (Mbox 2, Mbox 2 Mini, or Mbox 2 Micro) attached, and the Mbox 2 is disconnected prior to shutdown.

If this actually works I might have to find you and kiss you! lol

Thanks so much. I should've come here a long time ago!
