[update] Mac Os X 10.5.7 is out – all fine except volume control

Yeah Mac Os X 10.5.7 just got released. All fine for me, except my external USB soundcard Terratec Aureon 5.1 can’t be volume controlled anymore – strange!? Any idea what’s wrong?

[update – solved!]
Apparently downgrading the USB Sound kernel back to 10.5.6 Version solves the issue. See the comments and the Apple Discussion-board for more… Thx to sonderpop for that hint!

    Ignore the last one – I managed from the Time Machine. Please let me know if you need this file, I can email it to you:-)

    I am having similar problems with a Phillips USB Speechmike. Though I have Time Machine backup, it did not have a backup of the Extensions folder! Please could you email me that kext file? The Zippyshare link does not work.

    Many thanks.

    You can get your volume control back by downgrading the USB audio kernel extension to the previous version, see my discussion thread for details.
