Default MP3 export problem


If you have MP3 export on 6.7 read on:

I have an 001 with 6.4 installed. I bought the MP3 option ages ago, but have rarely used it (Audition does a good job for simple conversions)

I've done a search and found exactly the problem I'm having:
  • On Pro Tools LE and TDM v6.4, Pro Tools v6.4.1 (Mix systems), nearly every bounce to disk will end with an Access Violation Error

    The is an issue with the mp3.dll that comes with any 6.4(.x) installation. It will only allow you to bounce at maximum quality settings. The workaround is to get a mp3.dll of Pro Tools 6.7 or higher and replace the 6.4(.x) file with it. Note: you will likely have to trash preferences after replacing the 6.4 mp3.dll with the 6.7 mp3.dll.
I got to the downloads page:
  • Pro Tools 6.1 and Higher— All TDM & LE & M-Powered Systems
    On these systems, you can install MP3 Option from your Pro Tools 6 or 7 CD:
    Insert the Pro Tools 6 or 7 Installer CD-ROM for Windows in your CD-ROM drive
    Locate and open the Pro Tools Installer folder, and doubleclick the Setup icon
    Check the box next to "Update MP3 Codec" or "MP3 Codec Update"
    Run the installer
As it happens I've just bought an MBox1 (for another PC) with a 6.7 disk. I put that disk into my PC, and it tells me I have an older version of PTLE, and i must uninstall that first.


So, anyone got the 6.7 or higher mp3.dll and feel like mailing it to me? You'll find it with a simple search, and it should be no more than 40KB. Obviously I already have a serial number of my own.

Cheers.

Finally got it (3 MB?) after your second try. many thanks.



Am told to reboot. OK.

Now I get an error message telling me to update my TPkd diver.

Search in Answerbase:
  • Right+click on "My Computer" in the Start menu, choose the hardware tab and click on "Device Manager.
    -Choose View>Show hidden devices. A category labeled "Non-Plug and Play Drivers will become available.
    -Expand the list and you will see an item called "TPkd."
    -This item is is part of the PACE anti-piracy software that the Pro Tools LE installer copies to the hard drive.
    -Right+click on the TPkd item and choose "Properties."
    -Choose "Use this device (enable)" from the Device usage menu and restart the computer.

OK...

Do all that, start up PT, bounce to disk, select mp3...

Error message: "updated TPkd driver required, and a reboot. Please reboot or re-install the software."


How many hours have I been tinkering with this?

OK Digi support, what do I do now?

Thanks Eddie, but aren't those for the i-lok? Is that up and running even though I don't have a key? I'm a little reluctant to install anything I don't actually need.

That said, I may as well install the 'factory bundle' that came with the MBox (which is destined for another PC when 7 arrives) and see what happens. But that's going to have to wait a few days now.

I'll report back. Thanks for the help.
