Default Digidesign Question.

Hey guys I have a windows vista laptop, USB connecting my Digidesign Mbox 2 to it, going Mono 1/4" L/R to my Rokit 5 KRK's monitors. For some reason, in my sound controls under the control panel, my digidesign isnt being recognized. Any ideas what could be going wrong? I'm just trying to get audio playback from like "iTunes" or something but the green LED on my mbox isnt lighting up like it should.. I've set up on MAC before its only on this windows 7 pc that its giving me problems.. I would appreciate any responses.. Thanks! I think I have downloaded the right drivers that I need, the ASIO4ALL, and it still isnt being recognized.. Let me know! I would appreciate it thanks!

Default Re: Digidesign Question.

Your post is confusing. Are you running Vista or Windows 7? What version of Pro Tools is installed? If you have Pro Tools installed, then you don't need or want ASIO4ALL(which is for using 3rd party hardware with Pro Tools 9 and 10).

Thank you for replying fellas. Sorry about the confusion. I am running on windows 7, & in my control panel the for sound I can see the Mbox even though it is grayed out, & I can enable it as my default device, & the sound levels jump up and down whenever I playback music. The problem is the light on the mbox doesn't light up. Also, I'm not running Pro Tools on it, i'm just trying to use it as a sound card for audio playback basically.
