Default Mbox Pro 3 not receiving signal from Windows 10, after 1-2 seconds connected.

Hi, I am owning Mbox Pro 3, and I am having problem receiving sound from my PC, Windows 10.

I've installed 1.1.10 mbox pro driver from avid website. When I turn on my Mbox Pro 3, mbox pro control pannel receives signal and projects sound about one to two seconds, and sometimes about 30 seconds long too. But thats it, and it goes off. Not receiving any signal after that! Sometimes after five minute it just randomly start receiving signal and project sound about 1-2 seconds again and goes off...

Does anyone knows how to solve this problem? Its really weird that it catches sound at first and receiving it in control pannel (and project sound at speaker too) well for few seconds, but goes off and not receiving any afterwards...

Please help me!

Welcome to the community

Try a new cable from Mbox 3 Pro to your computer –
I have Firewire cable > SIIG FireWire 2-Port ExpressCard > laptop

I hope it’s just a bad cable – and not the Mbox 3 Pro!

In Control Panel > Sounds > Playback tab
set your Onboard Sound as Default (hit OK)

In Control Panel > Sounds > Recording tab
set your Mbox Pro 3 as Default (hit OK)

Restart computer

Always turn Mbox Pro 3 and computer off before connecting or disconnecting Firewire cable
Turn Mbox Pro 3 on - then turn computer on
