LaunchPad conflict?

Post by Fritz » Sat Feb 25, 2012 3:12 am

All of my other USB stuff works fine with my MacPro (Xeon 2x 2G), keyboard, trackball, drives, Canon printer, Dell monitor "extension", cells, Canon camera.
But Ableton refuses to acknowledge the LaunchPad at home.
Works fine on my MBPs with the same version of the app and OSX 10.6.8.

I'd guess that I have some kind of driver conflict. Latest driver for the Novation.
Novation tech support is rather useless.
I've tried it with all the "extra" USB stuff unplugged.
I've tried different USB cables and ports. Usually I use the ports on the tower not the Dell "extensions".
I've tried disabling what I think are background apps to no avail.
I tried "safe" boot, but I assume that also disables the driver, so that didn't work.
I disconnected the firewire audio I/Os.

Has anyone any ideas?
