Mbox 3 Blinking Light


Just went to a newer Mac Pro Tower running Mountain Lion. Hooked up my MBox 3, downloaded PT Express and plugged everything in. I keep getting the error message Unable to Locate Hardware and the blue panel is blinking. I plugged directly into the Mac Pro and it doesn't matter which USB jack I use- it still won't work. I swapped ports, used a different brand new USB cable and nothing helps. This particular MBox 3 was repaired at the factory within month of purchase and it's now just over a year old. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

So drivers need to be installed that aren't included with my MBox software? Once I did that, the MBox works fine. Avid, start including the drivers as part of the download!
