I have used my Midex 3 happily and successfully for many a year with all flavours of Windows (XP, Vista, W7).
However, now I have recently acquired a Mac and wish to use it with that too.
On reading the manual (yes, I’m one of those geeks who actually DOES do that), I see that you have to install Opcode’s OMS 2.3.8 first BEFORE the Mac version of the Midex 3 drivers.
I dutifully downloaded OMS, unpacked it using Stuff-It, and tried to install it, only to get an error message saying something like “this is not a Classic version”. I can only presume the Midex 3 manual and OMS 2.3.8 were in existence before OS X Leopard came along.
Or perhaps I need a HIGHER version of OS X? Or maybe something else completely instead of OMS 2.3.8??
Any help greatly appreciated. Although I’m above average competent with Windows, I’m a complete noob as far as Macs are concerned, to the point where even ejecting a CD-ROM from the drive had me stumped for quite a long time!!! (Not to mention the fact the pull-down menu on the top bar says F12, but pressing F12 on my system does something else completely.)
UPDATE: I managed (after a lot of messing about) to successfully install Snow Leopard 10.6.1 to another hard drive (using obviously the same computer as before). This time I simply installed the recommended Steinberg driver and hey presto! the Midex 3 was recognised immediately.
So why does the driver work for 10.6.1 but not 10.5.3??? Steinberg says categorically it is for OS X 10.5 thru to 10.8.
Surely someone out there with a Mac and a Midex 3 or 8 can help?
