1. You need to do the FIRMWARE update on the MR first ftp://ftp.steinberg.net/Download/Har...r_V110_PC.zip2
Supported operating systems: Windows XP SP2 (32-bit), Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit) and Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) Intel/AMD processor 1.4 GHz*
512 MB RAM
DVD drive required for installation FireWire port required for connection of MR unit
* 64-bit editions of Windows Vista require Core 2 Duo 1.66 GHz or higher and 1 GB RAM or more.
3. Make sure your using the CORRECT version of WINDOWS 7 for the MR, theres a 32 bit version and a 64bit version depending which OS you have.
