I thought this would be helpful. It's a step by step on how I did my re-install to work around this bug so I could run my Quicktime 6.5.2 audio through my Digi 001. This really is primarily for folks with 2 problems.
1) Digi 001 users who already re-installed Quicktime 6.5.2 who want their hardware to carry the audio of many different apps (including Quicktime 6.5.2) besides Pro Tools, and the download of Core Audio Setup 6.9 didn't fix the problem. These folks will not be getting a fix or patch according to Digidesign.
2) MBox, Digi 002 Rack, and Digi 002 users who downloaded Core Audio 6.9, re-installed Quick time 6.5.2, still can't get QT audio through their Digi hardware, and need Quicktime audio coming from their Digi hardware for the sake of productivity as soon as possible. Meaning you can't wait for the new Core Audio Digi will release for you.
Here is step by step how I re-installed ny system and got my Digidesign Hardware playing nice with my other apps.
1) Backup Files- In most cases I'd tell you to backup your files in a disk image. However, there is a possibility (though I haven't found it) that QT 7 leaves a hidden file fingerprint behind or has removed a file which could continue to cause problems. So I recommend saving all vital files on either CD's/ DVD's/ an External Hard Drive/ or a partition. If your gonna use an external or partition. just make sure it's not one tied to where you boot Panther from. Save everything essential. Documents, sessions (obviously), samples, mailboxes from mail servers, etc. Try not to save preferences or permissions files. Meaning make sure you have all your serial #'s for when you go re-install plug-ins and apps. Also make sure you make a note of exactly how you have written your user name and password for the system. In case, for example your mailboxes are tied to that it'll be the same. The key thing is don't use a disk image after the re-install and then replace all the blank files from the newly installed user files with the ones from the old disk image, because you may accidentally be loading up the fingerprint or missing file that QT 7 leaves (if one exists). If you use a disk image be careful what you copy to your new user files.
2)Do a complete clean erase and re-install of Panther. My Disk loaded OSX 10.3.5 released right after digidesign ended support for the 001. All you need is to have your Disk load 10.3.2 or above hopefully. After installing the 2 or 3 disks ( and X code if you want it) don't allow the system to do any of the automatic upgrades. Keep the system as is. If your below 10.3.2 then go to Apple and load the combined upgrade to 10.3.5 here: http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ ... _3_5_.html
Don't load any other updates.
3) Now load Pro Tools. Get it up to 6.4w/ the cs9 update. I'm assuming you have the disks for these. If not check Digi's website. Also load up Digidesign Core Audio Setup 6.4. This should be part of the 6.4 install. If you've had success with Core Audio 6.5.2 go with that. I will say the two 6.4's work very well together. Plus I believe Core Audio 6.4 was the last to allow the Digi 001 to chose which apps it supported. ( I always felt that was a nice feature).
4) Now your gonna load some updates first there should two security updates available for 10.3.5 load these two alone first.
5) Now your gonna install the combined update for 10.3.8 here http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ ... combo.html
I don't recommend going to 10.3.9 with the 001. The reason being, is that your leaving yourself open to more bugs with those on the cusp of Tiger app updates. there are no major security advantage to going to 10.3.9. In fact 10.3.9 caused quite a few security holes which is why they had to release a security update just a few days after releasing 10.3.9. What I am getting you to here is a very stable system.
6) Now load all other updates except 10.3.9. You can even load ITunes 4.8 without a problem. Keep Core Audio 6.4 or 6.5.2. Again I'm using 6.4.
7) Start re-installing all your programs, apps, plug-ins, docs, mailboxes and sessions. Somewhere close to that order as some won't open without the other.
8) Now you should be running very stable. I always tell people if it ain't broke don't fix it. I was running 10.3.9 fine before installing QT7, but now I don't want to mess with it. I won't be installing 10.3.9 unless I find out others are having success with it down the line after dealing with these very issues. I recommend to you the same. Go for stability over the latest and greatest. If you want to go there and get 10.3.9 do it only after all of this, and obviously don't load QT7.
Hope this helps. I know it seems like a lot, but I just wanted to be thorough so you wouldn't run into any hiccups, and in order to answer any questions you may have along the way. The key thing is backup your essential files. I can't be responsible if you lose any by not backing them up properly. As I said usually, going with a Disk Image of your previous user files is the way to go, but in this case it may be perpetuating the problem.
Digi 001 users. I know you feel a little left out cause it feels as though you can't even load the final Pamther upgrade. Remember though according to Digidesign they don't recommend anything beyond OSX 10.3.4 for Digi 001 LE 6.4 users. Besides that's not what this means. It means certain Tiger optimized apps are not going to be compatible with the Digi 001. I don't recommend 10.3.9 so A) you can avoid temptation when patches, fixes, and updates show up which could eventually prove to have a conflict with your Digi hardware or software. B) Accidentally downloading one of the afore mentioned when the system updates automatically opens.Wait let other folks be your Beta testers. Come here, Digidesign's user forum, and Apple's forum and find out what other folks are doing down the line. Maybe 001 users can piece together what they can upgrade and can't. I didn't have any problems initially upon upgrading to 10.3.9. My problems came when I upgraded to Quicktime 7.
Good Luck tell me how it goes
