Default Caveman needs help turning on Mbox 2.

Yes, I am a caveman when it comes to technology. So if someone could help me out, that would be AWESOME! Lol!... I purchased a brand new Mbox 2 about four or five years ago, and failed to hook it up. I am now just getting around to trying it again. I installed the Pro Tools LE that came with it, but I can't get the Mbox 2 to turn on. What is this caveman doing wrong?

Pro Tools 6.8.1 on... Windows? Mac? A toaster oven?

We need more information, please. What is your system running, and what operating system version specifically. I.E. Windows XP service pack 1, Mac OSX 10.4.1, etc.

Righto.

The first version of PT compatible with 10.5.x was 7.4.2, which was a paid upgrade.

At this point, you're best off either buying PT8 for ~$150, or crossgrade to PT9 for $249.
