Default HFS+ Disk Support

One of the limitations for M-powered is HFS+ Disk Support. What exactly does this mean? With LE can you read Mac Disks or something? Does LE come with MacDrive or something, or is it built in. Any info would be great, thanks.

Yes. The LE version has HFS+ support, which allows you to use a MAC HFS+ formatted drive as a record/playback/transfer drive directly within Pro Tools. Great for cross-platform session management/transfer. It is licensed from MacDrive and is integrated into the program.

Last time I checked, if you have both LE and MPowered installed, and the HFS+ option installed for LE, it will work in MPowered as well.

Fantastic, that is exactly what I wanted to know.

A couple more questions. Would installing macdrive be the same or a better alternative?

And what if I used my old LE disks to install just the HFS+ option. Is that possible? I use m powered now and no longer have LE hardware (I had an 002) But I still have my disks and what not.

Would i have to install LE entirely? I just want the HFS+ support in m-powered.

Its the same as MacDrive, its made by the same company. I have used M-Powered with the MacDrive standalone and had zero problems.


I'm not sure about being able to install just the hfs+ support from the LE disk

The thing is, Ive installed macdrive before, and it gave me permission errors and things of that nature when I went back into OSX and ran the the disk util, so I would prefer something built into the program.

Does anyone know if I can install LE completely, then uninstall everything but the HFS+ option?

The cheapest LE option is $250. MacDrive is $50.

They are the same thing. If you had "problems" with MacDrive, you're going to have "problems" with LE as well.

What do you mean the cheapest LE option is $250? I already have the LE software from my 002.

Did you mention that anywhere in these posts until just now? Nope. I was assuming you didn't have LE at all, and were going to purchase it.

My answer still stands, though; if you had problems with MacDrive, you probably going to have problems with the LE version as well since they are the same thing.

Not all versions of LE have HPFS+ support - I believe it started with version 7.3.
