Default mBox NOT mBox2 - CoreAudio doesn\'t realize this

I have an original mBox. I'm trying to run it as a general core audio device under OSX 10.4.10 (so I can use it with FinalCut). I don't have ProTools installed.

I went to the DigiDesign website and downloaded the appropriate CoreAudio Driver (CoreAudio 7.0), installed it and nothing works.

I go to System Preferences and find an "mBox 2 Control Panel". Useless.

The Digidesign manager is active in the toolbar - it sees the mBox. Audio MIDI Setup sees the mBox. mBox 2 Control Panel won't see the mBox.

Despite this, I try to play some iTunes through th mBox (because Audio MIDI Setup tells me that I have it selected as my primary audio output).

Nothing.

I assume I want something that won't tell my System Preferences to look for an mBox 2.

Any thoughts? This is my first visit to the digiDesign site in over 2 years (a testament to how long it takes before something breaks - and why I like the digi products) but the support thing seems to be completely impossible to navigate.

Can anyone help?

Bill

That control panel of the Mbox2 is normal, since you don't have one you can ignore it, but it gets installed on every system no matter what LE hardware you have.

In your "Sound" system preference, is it set to Digidesign HW?
