Default The Adventure Continues.......

So I load MBox2 on my MusicXPC M3 laptop with PT7 and
then the upgrade. Open up a session to see if Stylus is there
and yes it is so....now I'm happy.
I close all that up and open Windows Media Player to listen to
my backing tracks........and I get
Windows Media Player cannot play this file ....blah blah blah
audio device.......so I open Control Panel and the only audio device
listed is Digidesign MBox2 Chan. 1-2.
That can't be correct.....right?
so now no outputs on the laptop work.....but I can hear audio from the headphone
of the mbox.........ok so that would be livable except the audio skips like crazy
I'm guessing because of the USB transfer?
or maybe I need more RAM?
I'm at a loss here...........shouldn't I be able to choose between mbox and the
laptops audio card?
and one other question....why doesn't MBox run off of Firewire?

Any and All Help will be greatly appreciated

Peace
Mark Watson

"Windows Media Player cannot play this file ...." usually means that you are trying to play a 24 bit file which WMP can't do. Use dither and bounce to 16 bit.

In Audio and sound devices the only one listed now is
Digidesign Mbox2 channels 1 - 2
there is no other choice

and the files were just regular wma files
I finally got them to play but they skip and stutter
I think I may just
dump back to factory setting and start over

Thanks all
