Default Re: mbox pro tools launching help

6008 is memory related.
Click on the Answerbase link above and do a search for:

and you will find some suggestions.
Also, if you only have 128 MB of RAM, that could be the problem:
Total System RAM:
  • <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">128 MB minimum, 192 MB recommended. More RAM increases overall system and Pro Tools performance.
  • <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Note: Some users with newer Mac systems have been unable to launch Pro Tools LE with the minimum 128 MB RAM. Due to the increased RAM requirements of the Mac OS and newer Apple computer models, a minimum of 192 MB of RAM may be required in these systems.
  • <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Pro Tools LE application "Preferred" memory allocation set to 40 MB
  • <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">DAE "Preferred" memory allocation set to 30 MB
  • <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Additional RAM required for simultaneous use with MIDI sequencers
  • <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">192 MB RAM required for use with DigiStudio
  • <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Virtual memory is not supported
