    MC 6 will not launch- Disk Invalid Filename Syntax..?

    Avid phone is no help.

    I own a valid copy of MC 5.5 but want to try version 6. I uninstalled 5.5...installed ver 6 and it will not launch. It gets hung up Initialzing Avid Media Access Volume Manager...then it quits and I get a window that reads: Exception: DISK INVALID FILENAME SYNTAX.

    I have no idea what any of this means.

    I tried several times uninstalling and re-installing ver 6 but each time - same result.

    I then fully erased my System drive and did a fresh install of 10.7.2...My Mac pro was clean of anything Avid. It was basically a new machine. Nothing else installed. Just the OS.

    I once again downloaded version 6....installed.....and I STILL get the same Issue.(?)

    Anyone else have this happen?

    Is it a Lion OS issue? Do I need to set a folder a certain way? I just do not get it.

    What is the bottleneck here?

     

    Thanks

    Just read the error...

    What's the name of your hard drive?  Does it have a slash ( / ) or other weird characters in it?

    yes we found it- an external was being read but wasn't displayed on the desktop.

    Thanks!

    I had the same problem. As it turned out, a Korean audio cd was the problem: very suspicious data!

    I know this is an old thread, but Randolf if you're still around, would you please elaborate on that? Who did you call and what response did you get?
