    I bought a used Digi002R on ebay. When I plug in the Digi002R into my Mac mini, the 002R is not recognized when starting the Protools LE 6.9.3 application. The hard dive that is plugged into the back of the 002R is also not being recognized on the Mac Mini, not even in Disk Utility. I proceeded to check the hard drive by plugging it directly into the mac mini and it mounted without any issues. I tried starting up the Protools 6.9.3 application with an Mbox and Protools LE 6.9.3 worked flawlessly.
    I thought it could not be loading due to a compatibility issue with Protools 6.9.3, so I uninstalled Protools 6.9.3 and installed Protools LE 7.1. Again, the harddrive mounted without issue when plugged directly into the Mac mini. So, I unplugged the harddrive, plugged in the 002R, and again, Protools did not recognize the hardware. The harddrive, when plugged into the back of the 002R, also did not mount on the Mac mini and was not recognized in Disk Utility. When I tried starting Protools LE 7.1 with the Mbox it started flawlessly.
    So, at this point I am at a loss. Is it 2 bad firewire ports? Is the 002R completely shot? Any ideas? Please? Email me at ryanprocopio@yahoo.com thanks so much.

    System Config:

    Mac Mini - 1.5 Ghz PowerPC G4
    Mac OSX 10.4.8
    External Hardrive (plugged into back of Digi002) : Western Digital
    Model #WD2500D032-000 (Firewire 400)
    Now running Protools LE 7.1
    Digi002R Serial Number: UA6270600G

    What I didnt read was, does the 002R work WITHOUT the drive plugged into it??

    What happens without the drive???
    If it still doesnt work without the drive, do you hear clicking from the 002R, what are the lights doing??

    02Rs have a power harness issue, pop the top off, follow the harness from the power supply to the components, one at a time remove a connector, and spray the contacts with Caigs Pro Gold, and reseat the connector, should be 6 or so. Oh yeah unplug it from the wall before you start.

    You should be able to call up Digi and get a new power harness kit as it's a known issue. If it's not free, it should be cheap.
