Possibly causing my Mac to hang.

Here is a strange one, but I should report it.

I thought there was a problem with my machine hardware, even though its a top spec i9-9900

Plugged in my force to try the new OS and my Mac would hang multiple times a day.

Previous to that I had MPC-X connected and my Mac would hang once a day.

Disconnected both and surprisingly my machine has not crashed at all in a week.

Coincidence? Maybe. Driver issue? Possibly.

Sorry I have not been able to find anything useful in system logs what was causing the baffling crash, so likely its kernel level.

Hey John,

Thanks for posting!

Sorry to hear that! Your system specs should be more than capable of handling the MPC X in controller mode. The Force will only be able to update firmware or mount a connected storage device to your desktop so there's no driver necessary. So it could potentially be a driver problem with the MPC X but that still wouldn't explain why the Force is hanging the system.

What firmware versions are your Force and MPC X running? Did you install the 2.7 driver as well as the MPC 2.7 software?
