Pro Tools 8 And Windows 10

For anybody that's wondering out there, Pro Tools 8 works with Windows 10. At least it did for me.

Pro Tools has always been very fussy, so I was very leary of trying the upgrade, but I finally gave it a shot. I have Pro Tools 8.0.5 (yeah, I know that's super old), and I installed Windows 10 Pro 64-bit over Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

It took Pro Tools what seemed a longer time than it used to to load, but it did load, and played back without issue.

Nexus 6 MTP Fix

My Nexus 6 would connect fine via USB at work, but at home, it just won't show up at all on my Windows PC as MTP.

I realized that in Device Manager, it was showing up as an ASUS device, even though it is most definitely a Motorola Device.

At first I just uninstalled the driver, but it kept showing back up as an ASUS device in Device Manager.

Then, right I tried uninstalling it again, but I checked the box to delete the driver.

After that, I scanned for hardware changes. It took a while, but finally it installed a new driver on it's own, and now it just shows up as:

Portable Devices

And it works.

I hope it helps you out!
