USB Token software not found...?
Hi,

There are a couple of apps on my machine (osX) that always have the system tell me "Software needed for the USB device "USB Token" is not available." No software is ever found on the net and after I clear the message there are no problems with the system and I have no problems with any USB devices.

What is the system looking for and how can I get this message to not bother me?

Advice for the USB challenged? Thanks.

~Kent

Hey Kent,
When does this happen? Is it at start-up, or when you open these specific applications (if so, what applications are they). Also, do you have any non-apple USB peripherals plugged in? Sometimes when starting up classic, if you have USB peripherals installed, the classic system tries to control USB devices (even if these same devices have USB support in X) ...

Hi,

Yes, it is when classic starts up. I think you're right that classic is trying to control the devices.

The app that forces it is Lightwave, which has a dongle. If I remove the dongle, the problem goes away, so it's something related to the dongle.

I'd like to find out if there is USB sofware that I can add to classic that will eliminate the issue.

Hey Kent,
Ahh, you hit the nail on the head! :D , I'm sure that all you need to do is install the classic drivers (or, another workaround might be to plug in the device after classic has started and you are in the X side of things --- not sure if this will work, but it might). Also, check to make sure that you have the latest version of 9 (9.2.2), some people forget to continue updating the classic side, because there might be a patch or enhanced compatability.
good luck and give us a follow-up to let us know if you were able to rexolve it :)
