In a few days I'll be getting mt laptop back HOPEFULLY able to use my Synthogy Ivory GP II. I can't currently because the iLok won't install (device ever) and iLok.com tech support has no clue why. They've stopped answering my multiple requests for help, so I'm wiping my entire laptop and starting over with as basic W7 home premium can get, but that is neither here nor there.I'm wondering more about how my computer will handle running Ivory at high settings. Here's what I have.
2.5GH i5 Processor
8GB of RAM
M-Audio Fast Track w/ ASIO Drivers
And the part I'm worried about...
7200RPM Fantom USB 3.0 External Drive
I'm aware that firewire and SATA is the way to go, however my laptop has neither of these ports, I'm running Ivory on a slower laptop with only USB 2.0 and I'm getting a "slow disk" notification and sound cutting out.
Am I going to run into this same problem when I switch back to my USB 3.0 laptop? (I can only hope this last ditch effort to get the iLok to work succeeds).
