Digidesign 002 Rack / Console Windows 7 64bit driver installation

The Digidesign 002 Rack / Console is still a very common audio interface, mainly because of its high quality. The driver installation in Windows 7 though can be a bit tricky. At first you need the correct driver from here http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/download/Digi-002-003-Drivers. Be sure to download the correct driver for your interface. As of now it looks like this:

9.0.8. – latest version for 002 Console

9.0.6. – latest version for 002 Rack

After downloading the driver simply install click the exe file and install them. In most cases the Windows Device Manager will still show you the Digidesign 002 & 003 device with no driver installed. Then you have to do the following;

– open the device manager

– right click the digidesign device

– choose update driver

– search the computer for a driver

– choose for a list of drivers on this computer

– all devices => next

– have disk amd point to this directory C:\Programms\Avid\003 (Console)\Streaming

– select the “Avid00Console.inf” file, select Digidesign 002, ignore all the Windows warnings

– check the device manager again => the device should now be listed at audio,video & gamecontrollers
