    Ive installed the PT 7 software and when I try to save a new session ,this message appears .'session must be on an audio record volume'
    could some enlighten me on what this means.

    also had probs with the ilok , and authorization codes . Thing is I cannot find the codes in the 002 rack factory pack booklet and cards.

    well I thinks the answers are probably simple, could some one help please.

    yes i can help i just figured out the same thing open pro tools and go to window>workspace now take a look at the hard drive you wann save to (should use an external for protools)
    under A it should be R and under V it should have R too, but im willing to bet your drive dosnt have R under thees heading things so change them and your away sailing!!!!

    Good luck

    Is the LaCie FW or USB??? If USB, then you must use the LEFT USB port on the MBP.

    Also check the drive formatting.

    no problem im running the exact rig but it worked fine for me!! do you start your drive before you open protools?
    apart from that a good old restart always seems to do some good
    as said before are you using firewire or usb im going macbook>002>lacie with the one firewire port doing both
    mabe try daisy chaining with your interface (unless your recording a lot of tracks at once)
    sorry i cant help futher
