Tried for weeks, with no success, to get my PC's (both XP and Win98) to communicate correctly with the Midi Express XP USB.

Purchased latest ROM upgrade which solved the problem. System very stable now.

I have fighted with this parallel interface so much... It has worked with Windows 98 like a tank. Few years ago I used it with Windows 2000 and it worked fine. Never got work with Windows XP, always gave me just two ports: Flyer A and Flyer B. Btw I have owned Flyer too and it worked very well. Anyway, that pissed me so much I never installed XP since now! I went to MOTU homepage and downloaded latest drivers (2.5x) and now there were even info how to install the drivers (also they mentioned that drivers have been tested with Win2k/XP). I did everything like they said and guess what? It worked!! I was amazed... I was going kick it out of studio but then miracle happened. I just wish it will keep working...

I got a USB MIDIExpress XT second-hand for my Mac OS9 rig and it had worked flawlessly...

Then I upgraded to OS X and the thing is practically useless. It misses presses and releases so much I can't really use it. I'm wearing out the PANIC button on the thing!

I fiddled as much as I could with reinstalling the drivers, messing with the patchbay settings (there are no signs of a bad MIDI loop) and it really looks like an issue at the driver/software end.

Anyone gone through this?

Posted by spaceCAKE: " installs under sound, video and game controllers by default.."

Oh no it doesn't; it never did on my computers (hello, XP and 2000 on different computers).

Anybody else with the driver installing under SYSTEM DEVICES?
