I've just acquired an Mbox Mini with ProTools 9. And while setting up i accidentally disabled a recording device in the sound > recording menu. Is there a way to get this back??

Depends on what you disabled. If you just "disabled" it there, Right click on it and then enable again.

If you can't do it in program settings or by any other means, just do a system restore to a point before you installed your Mboxmini and then redo it. ( I assume that your system restore works fine. )
