Can CoreAudio be damaged? Reinstalled?

Post by see.si » Fri, 10 Oct 2003 23:26:08


After a big crash of Logic Audio I started getting "Core Audio Driver
returned -1" most every time I exited the programmer. I reinstalled Mac
OS X.

Then it lookd like the audio interface (an Emagic USB unit) could not be
found so I unplugged the USB cable. Now I consistently get "CoreAudio:
the selected driver could not be found (-10202)" everytime I start
Logic, and some audio-related functionality is consistently gone.

I can't see how a system component (software after all) could be
permanently damaged. Can it? Can I reinstall CoreAudio without
reinstalling the whole OS?

In article <1g2k4tj.vsb1pdz8odd6N% XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



I have Logic Audio 6 under Mac OSX 10.2.6.

Rre-installing MacOS X over the existing version (using the Archive
option) should work. I had to do this recently.
Did 10.2.3 install followed by 10.2.6 update followed by re-installng
Logic Audio (do't forget to unplug the dongle).

Then things worked OK.

respect...

Somehow that wasn't enough in my case.

Btw the explanation of 10202 "selected drivercould not be found" is that
the Logic though it had to use the "EMI 6|2" driver, and that one was
missing or damaged.

Somehow on reinstalling the corruption didn't go away (problem with
Archiving install is that prefrences stay in place, probably), so I
searched out everything with A62 (the unit has been renamed) in the
name, threw it away, then reinstalled the driver, and now we're happy.
