    OK so I know that some USB ports on the macbook pro won't supply the necessary power for the audio8...

    does the same issue occur with the macbook (black) ?

    For me the A8 works in one of the ports since lately a messup with a midi controller caused one of the ports to stop giving power and so works now when reading small usb sticks but not when something bigger is plugged in.

    Apparently it is quite a normal problem with the macbook series and i read that it isn't even a hardware issue but some software problem. Unfortunately i haven't been able to fix it myself yet. A re-install of the OS will probably fix it in the end.

    only one of my macbooks have this problem. but for speed of setup i have everything in a usb hub anyways, all my usb cables are bundled together, so i only need one port.
