Oh, thank you for this help!

The Mbox I have uses firewire and does not actually have a USB connection. I wish it did. Then it might actually WORK!

@monty_lameer Maybe the firewire port needs some drivers that need to be installed as well?

Yes...I have searched for this but was never able to find which one, and some were so old...I don't know. It's not ever really worked properly. It always would cut out, suddenly drop out as the DAW had lost it and I had to select it again. Literally right in the middle of a song.

It would also happen when watching Youtube and every single time a commercial would then switch to the actual video I was watching, the sound would cut out and I had to restart the video to get the sound back.

I have all my PC sound going (internet, PC sounds, music recording through the DAWs, etc) through the interface and studio monitor speakers.

@monty_lameer do you still have the documentation or brand/model of your computer and can you share them with me? I'd love to try and see if I have more luck searching for the right drivers to help you..

Thank you so much! I will have a look for more specifics, but off the top of my head it's a Dell Inspiron and runs Windows 8.1.

Even right from the start though, the Mbox had these issues.

Hmm. I'll have to have a look. My mum is visiting right now and it's a bit hard to get in there.

I think we got the computer in 2014 maybe...

@monty_lameer is this Dell a PC or a laptop?

I found a laptop model here: https://www.techradar.com/reviews/pc-mac/laptops-portable-pcs/laptops-and-netbooks/dell-inspiron-15-7000-2014-1259007/review
Does it look like yours? Is it a laptop? Or a PC? Let me know..  ;) ;)

So sorry for these delays when you're being so helpful!

It's a PC. I MUST remember to peer at the back of it to see its model number or at least what number Inspiron it is!

Did you already find the model number @monty_lameer ? You can always use a mirror behind the pc and take a picture with your phone of what you see in that mirror (after 'mirroring' the photo).. or something like that..  ;) Wow that was a lot of 'mirrors'..  :blackgrin: :blackgrin:
