Default Cannot change drive to audio volume even after formatting

i have an iMac OS X 10.4.6 1.83 GHz Intel-mac, m-audio fastr track pro interface, and a lacie 250 firewire external hard drive. I have tried to reformat my drive many times now, and every time i try to change the record volume, it will not allow me to select "playback" or "record".


I used my hard drive on different pro tool set ups, and it worked just fine from the start. I know that my version of pro tools is compatable with the lacie hard drive because I've used it before. I feel like i have tried it all.

if anyone could offer any advice, i would really appreciate it.

thanks,

Could be a permissions problem, so check to make sure those are set correctly.

Sometimes this happens to me, but I find that if I restart Pro Tools and power cycle the drive I'm OK.

Good luck.

Have you tried trashing preference or database files yet?

How is the drive formatted, exactly?

It's formatted as Apple_HFS. I used the Volume format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) when I Formatted the hard drive. I don't know what else I can do. I had a few friends who are experienced with ProTools look at it also and they are baffled as well. Do you have any other advice?

thanks,

Info on trashing prefs can be found in the OS X Setup and General Troubleshooting sticky at the top of this forum.

What version of Pro Tools are you running? If it's not 7.1.1 or higher, that could be the problem...
