USB-MIDI Keyboard Controller

I have a Roland PC-200 mkII midi controller connected to the PC via a MIDI to USB converter. The system claims to recognise it, and sets up a USB2.0-MIDI device with two hardware items: USB Composite Device and USB2.0-MIDI (sound, video and game controllers).

The keyboard is recognised - and sends MIDI signals. However, it will only send one at a time now, meaning it will only play single notes rather than chords. This is independent of whatever programme runs with it, indicating that it's a problem between the keyboard and Windows 7. The keyboard worked properly on Vista32 and previously on XP.

My mobo will not accept a direct MIDI (game port) connection, so I have no choice but to use the converter.

Am I missing any settings in Windows 7?

Yamaha MIDI Keyboard Issue
I have a Yamaha YPT-300 model keyboard that I am attempting to hook up to my Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit machine via a MIDI-to-USB cable. (The cable came with this eMedia USB MIDI Keyboard Interface Kit.) The drivers for the USB/MIDI cable installed without issue, but my system does not appear to recognize the Yamaha keyboard. I attempted to install the Yamaha USB-MIDI driver, but it raises an error. ("Error 25001. No device is connected. Connect a device, and try again.") The MIDI/USB cable has two lights that blink when everything's working properly; one of the lights is blinking, the other is not. The light that isn't blinking appears to be related to the plug for the MIDI IN jack on the keyboard, if that helps. Some of the simpler stuff ... I've got the MIDI IN and MIDI OUT cables plugged into the right jacks on the keyboard. (i.e., the MIDI IN plug goes to MIDI OUT jack, and vice versa -- it makes sense when you think about it.) The cables are not loose. I've googled all around for an answer, but I've found nothing but dozens of topics with no solutions or topics addressing something else altogether. And yes, I have tried turning it off and on again.

Good Midi Keyboard For Windows 7?
I am considering getting rid of my CME-UF5 Midi keyboard since there is no possibility of running it under Windows 7 and purchasing something new. Although I did like the quality and weight of the keys with CME vs M-Audio, I suspect M-Audio would have much better driver support and customer support for future updates, CME was certainly lacking in this department considering they didn't even provide a Vista driver for this damn thing. I browsed through forums and it seems that someone had created their own Vista driver for it by modyfing the XP one while others claimed that due to the hardware inside this keyboard, there would be no way to run it outside of an 32bit XP environment.

Changing MIDI Output Device (SB XFi MIDI (8080))?
I've been in contact with MS Support, about that in the Windows 7 Sound panel there is no longer the ability to change MIDI Port from the internal GS Wavetable synth, and got confirmed that they've removed this, both for Vista and Windows 7"The ability to choose a different hardware or software MIDI synthesizer other than the default Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth has been removed from the user interface for audio configuration in Windows Vista/Windows 7. A different output MIDI synth or output device port can be selected only by editing the registry".I really want to select the MPU-401 compatible MIDI Port, so I can make use of my old Roland MT-32 and the old Sierra games through DOS-Box

USB Midi Won't Work Anymore
I'm having problems getting my Usb MIDI to work in my music software. It used to work, but one day it just magically stopped working. I was about to make a dumb mistake and buy a new $60 Usb MIDI cable, but then I checked in device manager and I noticed that Windows WAS recognizing the Usb MIDI cable. It even said "This device is working properly." The MIDI Input light on the cable blinks when I press the keyboard's(piano) keys when I first plug it in, then stops after a while. It's supposed to be plug-n-play. When I first got it, no driver download was needed. I plugged it in, and it worked. I was thinking it may need a driver update? Or maybe a new driver? [code]

USB Game Controller Only Works In One Usb Port?
I have this USB Sega Saturn game pad that I have been using for years now. It is a USB 2.0 device. Recently it has only been working when plugged in to one particular usb port. If I plug it in to any other usb port, it says "unknown usb device" and the driver install fails. I want to get it to work in all usb ports on my computer, particularly the ones in the front, for obvious reasons.

1. Turn my computer off and then on again.

2. Unplug the controller, uninstall the drivers, and plug it in to a different port. Still get the same error.

3. I plugged it in to every single usb port on my laptop and it works flawlessly. This includes usb 2.0 and 3.0 slots.

4. I tried switching other usb devices, such as my mouse, to other usb ports, and they work flawlessly.Both my desktop and my laptop are running windows 7 x64.

Windows 7 Not Detecing MIDI Devices?
I've been having a major problem with for over several months. I've recently started to make music and I'm interested in using some of the MIDI capabilities on several of the instruments I have, mainly drum machines and synthesizers. The problem is Windows 7 is not detecting these MIDI to USB interface devices and instruments I have.I've tried using three interface devices so far with no luck what-so-ever. I've tried different two types of MIDI to USB cables, these are generally small, and they both work because I tested them on my friends Macbook and they were 100% functional.So, I decided maybe I should get a better piece of recording equipment, thinking there would be better platform support, so I purchased a Focusrite Saffire 6 USB, low and behold, I had the same problem!The MIDI to USB cables and the Focusrite interface detect the MIDI IN coming from the MIDI OUT port of the instrument, however Windows is not reading the converted MIDI information running through the USB cable into the computer.Here's a list of the solutions I've tried.Updating my chipset drivers. Uninstalling and re-installing chipset drivers. Un-installing and re-installing my sound drivers. Using the latest USB drivers (and even beta drivers) and utilities provided by the interface products. Trying different USB ports assuming it was a power issue. Uninstalling and re-installing the product drivers, rolling back to older drivers as well. Updating Windows. Tested under two different DAWS; CuBase and Sony ACID. I also tried different stand-alone soft-synths, they didn't detect the MIDI devices either. I've tried a few obscure MIDI drivers I dug up from a few places, but to no avail, I un-installed them. I've tried sacrificing 3 goats to Microsoft, that didn't work either. I'm convinced that this is a Windows / Hardware compatibility issue. I'm tempted to get a Mac product so I don't have to worry about this time pilfering fiasco. If anyone would like to take a stab at this I would be very grateful.Here's my system specs:

Windows 7 MIDI Input Problem?
I tried to attach a M-audio 88es USB MIDI keyboard to my Dell Studio 1747 laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium x64). The keyboard is correctly identified on the USB, M-audio's drivers installed and this shows up in any MIDI software I start, but nothing can be transmitted from the keyboard to the computer.The usb keyboard works with other computers, and the Dell Studio sound system can play MIDI files. To make sure I alternated to an external Creative XFi soundblaster audio unit, which should have all MIDI capabilities, but again no sound from the keyboard (actually, a field in the recording software would show up if MIDI instructions were received).

USB Keyboard Not Responding?
A few days ago my keyboard stopped working. I believe I was uninstalling VMWare, which did not complete (but I don't know if that has any effect on it). I obviously tried the batteries, different keyboards to make sure it wasn't something simple. I tried plugging in to different USB ports (which all recognize the keyboard and installs the drivers) but it simply does not recognize the characters that I type. I have a several different keyboards that I have tried and I can not get them to work on the computer. The mouse works fine, and the volume and calculator key's work, along with the function keys. Everything else on the keyboard does not work. I have uninstalled all the hubs, re-installed driver's, which show the keyboard is installed (with no ! or error). I have ran out of options to consider, I am about to delete all the registry keys regarding the keyboards. I have been using the onscreen keyboard to login.I have both Logitech and Microsoft keyboards and installed and uninstalled Setpoint, Intellitype.

I'm running on Windows 7 x64
My motherboard is the
P8P67 PRO Rev. 3.0 - New P67 B3 Revision

I have tried the drivers and firmware from here without any success. RENESAS/NEC Drivers & Firmwares Perhaps I am installing the wrong drivers? No clue.. i'm not the best with computers so that's why I cam here.

Also in the end my goal will be to run and use this product which needs to be ran from USB 3.0

The product is the Black Magic Intensity Shuttle Blackmagic Design: Products Blackmagic Design: Support Detail

Here's a good video tutorial to setup the drivers but mine doesnt allow me to open the host controller.. it just says Host Controller not found..

I have tried enabling/disabling controller from BIOS, reinstalling drivers, finding different drivers, and reinstalling my mobo CD, but to no avail. (Yes, i already tried searching).It does not show up in windows device manager at all, but when i plug my mouse into the ports, the LEDs light up, but the system does not detect it (nothing happens, no chime or anything).

Usb 3 Controller Driver Windows 7?
Have a USB 3 card added to my PC which was working perfectly since fitted 2 years ago. But recent PC crash forced fresh install of OS (Win7 64-bit), and now I cannot find the required driver for this card. If my memory is correct, the card/driver was from NEC (PC1 card).

Yamaha MIDI Driver Install Fails?
I want to hook up a MIDI keyboard to my computer so I can take computer-based playing lessons.

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit. I have a generic MIDI-USB cable. I plug it in, Windows recognizes it, and installs a driver. I plug the MIDI In cable into the Out socket of a Yamaha PSR260 keyboard, and Out into In, and power on the keyboard. On the MIDI-USB cable, the red power light is on, and the In LED is flashing. So far, so good, but now I'm having troubles.

I think that I need to install a Yamaha MIDI driver in order for Windows to recognize my device. I downloaded the UM312x64 package, but when I run setup.exe, it gives me "Error 25001. No device is connected."

Keyboard And Mouse (USB) Flickering On And Off
when I open, it's seemingly random, programs sometimes the usb flicker on and off. For example, the mouse works 1-2 seconds then stops 1-2 seconds and continues like that. Same with the keyboard, it works a few seconds, stops and repeats.When I shut down the program it works again, 'the program' because it's been abit of everything. Sometimes it happens again, so I have to restart again etc.With the new keyboard with back lighting and mouse with dpi indicator I see that the keyboard and mouse flicker with its light on and off, one after another. The usb unplugged sound or whatever it is has also occured with these new peripherals aswell.I've tried disabling power saving option in the Root Hubs in device management, but it doesn't help.

BSOD When Playing USB Controller Games?
Windows 7 x64 OEMHP p6754y, bought it at Best Buy early 2011AMD Athlon II X4 640 Processor, 3.00 GHZHey guys, I'm ripping my hair out trying to figure this out. I'm guessing it's a USB problem, because it only happens when I play some old school emulator games with a USB controller. Regular mouse and keyboard games don't crash at all. The BSOD could happen anywhere from 20 seconds into the game to 20 minutes, but it's guaranteed to happen. I already tried the USB general fix for problems link and it's still happening.

Can't Install Driver For USB Controller
I had one of my regular BSOD (I'm quite sure its a RAM issue) and nothing unusual ever really comes from it, however today it screwed up my USB controller driver and now I'm perplexed as to how to get a fix for it.

(Windows 7 64-bit)

Windows recognises all of my 8 Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller devices in Device Manager and upon startup it attempts to install the drivers, but fails on each one of them every time. I've tried to manually update the driver and I get the message:

"Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it.

Intel(R) ICH9 Family USB Universal Host Controller - 2935

The system cannot find the file specified."

The file associated with each of these devices is C:WindowsSystem32driversusbuhci.sys

I've tried countless chkdsk C: /f in CMD to no avail and my Windows 7 disc did nothing to automatically find a cure (wasn't sure how to find the driver manually from disc). I've been told that the drivers for USB controllers are downloaded through Windows Update however I have extremely limited internet bandwidth and simply cannot be downloading 300mb of updates (I searched and couldn't find anything vaguely matching the description of the driver I'm after).

This is driving me a little mad and I really don't want to resort to reinstalling Windows. I've tried Aida32 to try and find out my motherboard type and it shows as unknown.

I've just been downloading various Chipset drivers and browsing through the MANY options that windows provides me with when searching for drivers on my computer, however, whenever I try and automatically OR manually install a driver, even when I'm SELECTING THE FILE for the driver, it STILL comes up with that ridiculous message of "Windows found the driver software ... ... The system cannot find the file specified."

Windows Disables USB Controller Its Connected
So I've had sudden trouble with my webcam in the last two days, which is kind of irritating because I rely on it a lot. Specifically, when I try to activate my webcam, Windows disables the USB controller its connected to, reporting "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43.)" I've tried the webcam on another computer and had no problems. Disabling/reenabling doesn't do anything, neither does using a different USB port. I've tried the other solutions I've found online, including running the Hardware troubshooter, taking the battery out of my laptop, and unplugging the power for a couple of hours. I've removed the USB controllers, and restarted my computer.
