New User...can't get Max to work?

Post by Lizstar319 »

Hi all,

Just downloaded Max (the latest stable version - 7.1) on OS X (10.4.10). When I start Max up, most of my Menus are greyed out, even though I have a CD in the drive (in Finder, the CD is recognized and correctly identified). The Menus that AREN'T greyed out seem to do nothing when I click on them (Preferences, etc.)

Anyone have any ideas as to what I need to do, or what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

I believe you're going to have to first go to Max > Preferences and get the application configured for use first, paying lots of attention to the Formats and Output tabs.

Right, but when I click on the Preferences Menu....it doesn't come up.

Annnd, hmm. Just re-launched it, with the CD already in the drive, and it seems to work now. Strange. Thanks anyway!
