Topic: MacBook Pro crash with FF400 and 2.66, 10.6.2
I recently upgraded to Snow Leopard (10.6.2), running it in 32 bit mode with Logic, Live and MaxMSP.
I had some troubles getting the Fireface 400 to be recognized when I connected it to the running computer (the FF400 is PSU-powered), so I decided to upgrade it to the latest SL-drivers. I also updated the FF400 to the most recent firmware a week ago, the problem persists.
Ever since, my MBP crashes (I can't control anything with mouse, trackpad internal or external keyboard, only button that works is the on/off switch) when I connect the FF400 to the computer.
When I subsequently restart, everything works fine, mixer and the other software start up automatically and the sound is excellent.
The MacBook Pro is a 2009 model 17", 2.8 Ghz with 4GB of RAM. Logic, Live and Max are at the most up to date versions, but it doesn't matter whether or not they are running, the computer crashes either way.
any ideas what could be causing this? browsing the forum, this seems rather isolated, so I guess it would have to do with my configuration.
I bought my FF400 in late 2008, if that makes any difference...
Thanks for any help and pointers!
