Hi Phil.

I am finally back at working on this and after eliminating all X-rate software, etc. I still have the same problem with the USB port number being "out of range".

There is also no i1Pro preference for me to turn off. There is no "launcher demon" either for this on my Lion iMac.

I have done a web search for this but come up empty.  Any suggestions?

Hi Mark,

I had similar, but not the same, problems last year, with OSX 10.6.6, and had a

"i think I've fixed it now. Found info on X-Rite site, about Difficulty 
connecting X-Rite hardware to third-party software and turning OFF i1Pro in X-Rite 
Device Services Preference Pane.


Any way to override this, so you don't have to keep switching on/off?

May not like having i1 running with Argyll and X-Rite software at the same time.

Good luck,

as follows:

chartread: Error - icoms - usb_is_usb_portno: port number out of range!

I am using the standard i1Pro and a recent iMac with the i1Pro directly into 
one of the USB ports on the back of the iMac.

Any suggestions on either finding the correct port number of using one that
