Hi all,

I have a friend who recently purchased a 17" MacBook Pro, goosed as much as it can be, however, he has issues when connecting some devices via USB. iPod and HD's are fine, however there are issues with his MBox 2 (External Sound Card Unit) and MPD 16 (Akai Midi Trigger). They are both fine in mine (17 Powerbook). Anyone had any similar issues with USB on theirs?

Maybe try plugging a powered USB hub into the Macbook Pro and then the devices into the USB hub. Might just work. Otherwise, it may be more of a driver issue with Intel Macs - hence why they work ok on a PPC Powerbook.
