Resolving the TBIA Error
Text size [-] [+]

Q: I get a TBIA error when installing or connecting my M-Audio USB interface.

A. This is an error caused by the M-Audio (or Avid) Taskbar Icon.  This issue has been addressed by installer updates to the following devices. 
  • ProFire 6.0.9
  • Axiom Pro 6.0.2
  • Xponent 6.0.2
  • Conectiv 6.0.3
  • Producer USB 6.0.4
  • Micro USB 6.0.4
  • Audiophile USB 6.0.3
  • Ozone USB 6.0.4

Download the latest driver installer from www.m-audio.com/drivers.  Running this new installer will automatically uninstall the old driver and install the newest and should resolve the TBIA error in the process.


Additional information:
 
We have also seen conflicts with the TBIA and other 3rd party software.  If you continue to receive the TBIA error, disable any virtual audio devices created by applications. E.G. Virtual Audio Cable, TuneBite, Bluetooth Audio Device, Anvex Virtual Audio Device, Total Recorder WDM Audio Driver, Access Virus TI Snow (software component).  If the problem remains, disable the M-Audio Taskbar Icon Application in the MSConfig Startup options.
