    Digidesign will be announcing Leopard compatibility for Pro Tools LE very shortly and I would like to purchase a macbook for use with an mbox 2 or 003 rack for recording audio. With both products an external fire wire hard drive for recording audio is a requirement.

    Some fire wire audio interfaces are experiencing problems with the newer macbooks which have the Lucent or Agere fire wire chipsets. What has been reported on a another forum is that these chip sets cause the fire wire interfaces to issue a fire wire bus reset shortly after start of data transmission. For detailed information please see the link below.

    To those of you who were able to purchase your new macbooks yesterday the way to determine what fire wire chip set is By pressing "Command-S" (single user mode) while booting you can see the information about half way down the page.

    Could someone please check to see which fire wire chipsets are being supplied in the new macbooks?

    Thank you

    Thank you for taking the time to check the fire wire chipsets.

    To all of you computer experts can a fire wire bus reset shortly after start of data transmission be corrected with a driver update?
