Default 9092 and 9129 errors MBox 2 Pro Win XP

Recently got an MBox 2 Pro and had a Dell Inspiron 530 Win XP Sp3 machine around but I keep getting hardware buffer errors.

I start a blank session but can't get timeline to play due to the errors

The usual case of try increasing/decreasing buffer size.
I've tried all the other options in that page realted to disc buffer sizes

Increasing H/W buffer size error (-9092)
Decreasing H/W buffer size error (-9129)

The Mbox is running from a PCI firewire card

I've tried you're optimisation tips including disabling the onboard sound and disabling multicore processing in the BIOS.

I've included the Sandra report below.

Many thanks

Ben Wood

Not ALL of em....
Only one hard drive. You MUST use a dedicated audio drive.
1 gb video ram is a bad idea....look for a video card with 256-512 MAX.
What KIND of pci firewire card? This is critical.

I've just tested with a firewire drive with no audio on the timeline with the same errors

Like I said, you need a separate hard drive for audio. NOTHING will work right until you address this.
Then look for an approved firewire card like a Siig. But go buy that hard drive.

Thanks for your patience. I can see this isn't an isolated problem.
Unfortunatly the external drive hasn't helped
I'll try and get my hands on a ADS Pyro card.
I can get normal system audio (i.e. media player) coming out the Mbox2 Pro, so it seems to be functioning via the firewire card
I read somewhere not to connect the external power supply if you're powering it with via firewire

Thanks again

Depends on the external drive...one was not listed in your report. Are you using firewire or USB? (USB externals are not supported.) Firewire drives need to have the Oxford 911 chipset, and they must be at least 7200-rpm.
Why are you loooking for an ADS pyro when you've been pointed to a SIIG card which has the required chipset?
Is this a laptop or a dektop? If it's a desktop, just get a good 7200-rpm SATA drive.

I'm in the UK and could't find a SIIG card online but I googled digi certified firewire cards and goto this page which said they approve the ADS Pyro cards which I can find easily over here.

http://www3.digidesign.com/index.cfm...4&itemid=23113



I also tried optimization step involving IDE ATA/ATPI controllers. Changing transfer mode to "DMA if available." as posted here.

I've just attached a maxtor external firewire drive, I'm just generating a report now... but I can't find out the chipset
