3.

5. Restart your computer to complete the driver removal.

7. Double-click the file named "OzoneUSBAudio.pkg".  The driver installer will launch.  Click "Continue".

16. Don't connect the Ozone USB to your computer while it is shutting down. Wait until your computer is in the process of starting up, then connect your Ozone USB to an available USB port on your computer, connect the power supply and turn the Ozone USB on. Alternatively, you can wait until the computer is fully started and connect and power up the Ozone USB then.

Your Ozone USB is now ready to be used.

17.  Connect outputs 1 and 2 of your M-Audio Ozone USB to your speakers, mixer, or other amplification device so you can hear the output of the device.

Once you have completed the installation procedure above, a new "M-Audio Ozone USB" icon is placed in System Preferences.  Click on this icon to launch your Ozone USB's control panel.  If you have completed both the software and hardware installation properly, "Connected to M-Audio Ozone USB" will be displayed on the bottom of the Ozone USB control panel.
