    AVID 5.7 "Initializing Audio" hang!!!!

    Hey everybody,

    I have a Soundblaster Audigy SE that worked perfectly with 5.6.4; however, I just upgraded to 5.7 and when "initialiazing audio" boots up on the screen, Avid hangs. Any thoughts or workarounds?

    I reverted back to 5.6.4, so all is well. Nevertheless - has anyone had this problem? Avid?

    I had a similar issue on a MAC (grrrr), because I had the audio muted. Worth a look.

    Hi,

    Try deleting your media databases. Exit Avid.  Then open up your OMFI MediaFiles folder and find the two database files (named msmFMID.pmr and msmMMOB.mdb).  Delete them.  Restart Avid, and the system will rebuild them.  See if that fixes your problem.

    good luck,
    Carl

    Hi,

    You could try deleting your media databases, too, but Vista's not supported, so I have less confidence that it's going to help.

    good luck,

    Re: AVID 5.7 "Initializing Audio" hang!!!!

    I deleted all setings folders and media folders, deactivated the sound card, deinstalled quicktime and the digidesign audio driver... But it still hangs at "Initialize Media StreamManager".

    It did start up with 5.6.x. I really hoped that this could maybe work under Vista :( So is still have to dual boot all the time just because of avid.

    Re: AVID 5.7 "Initializing Audio" hang!!!!

    Hello,

    I'm editing a project at the moment, but I'll try clearing my database when I get the chance. But if you have any more info on the "initializing audio" hang - that would be great! I'm glad I was able to update my dongle back to 5.5 to use 5.6.4.

    If it isn't eh audio card...what could it be?
