BUMP!I'm glad I'm not the only one with this problem. Last post asked:Does the Midisport UNO device show up in the control panel(Sounds and Audio Devices)? If it does, then there should be no issue.The answer to that one is, NO the device does NOT show up in the control panel, that IS the issue. And it's not the device: I installed the same device (without any hesitation or driver downloads) on a Dell laptop. The desktop I've got does not recognize the Uno just like the original poster is describing. So it has to be some sort of configuration in the computer that is preventing the recognition. The question is, WHAT???
Do you have any virus protection/firewall/spyware software enabled? Those can cause problems installing drivers and devices.Do you even get the Windows sound that indicates that new hardware is connected when you plug into different USB ports? Does Windows attempt to load the drivers or give you any indication that new hardware is connected?The Uno will work class-comliant (no drivers) and XP would identify it as "USB Audio Device"; do you see that anywhere (Device Manager or Control Panel for Default Device for MIDI Music Playback)?I've heard mixed things about the native USB ports on dell's laptop. Do you have a USB expansion card to try?You may want to contact M-Audio tech support for help with in depth troubleshooting.
Unfortunately folks....per Yamaha and M-Audio, the Uno will not work with ANY Yamaha keyboards. I wish I had better news for you but this has been a known problem for quite some time.
Hey guys, im using a yamaha keyboard, to plug into my computer, and its using a MIDIsport UNO MIDI to USB connector. It said that I would be able to use it like a MIDI controller like this, but it doesnt even pick up the stupid keyboard. What do I have to do, or whats wrong here? Any help appreciated. If theres anything else you have to know let me know.
