Hi all,

I did the update to v1.45 today with an old HP Elitebook 8540p Notebook running on Win10 x64. I used the newest UC Version which is available since Nov 19. Update took a few minutes but it worked well. Now I´m running my old Faderboard on v1.45.

Having the same issue here:

- FadePort Classic
- macOS 10.13.6
- Mid 2012 MBP w/ (2) native USB2.0 ports

I've tried multiple ports (both directly on the laptop and via a hub), and multiple cables. Still No luck.

Come on Presonus. A year and a half on from the initial post and loads of other people saying they're experiencing the same thing, and still no solution?

12 / 15 / 2019. I tried the firmware again with my wife's laptop (Win10) and using the USB 2.0 port. Same error. It is time to admit that there is something wrong with your updater software? It's not a USB 2.0 port problem. I think I'll throw the Fadeport "Classic" to trash soon if there is no fix.

No Firmware update needed.  See here

This worked for me and it installed in Logic Pro X automagicaly.  I was about to pop a cork!
