Question about M-Audio MobilePre (US41401) Audio Input

Open Question

Hardware issue Can't seem to get the device recognized by computer (have tried both laptop and desktop with Win XP SP2). Have uninstalled and re-installed drivers and get it going. Under device manager I have an exclamation point and it says The Device Cannot Start (Code 10). Have tried another USB cable and can't get it to work. Both cables do, however, power up the device.

SOURCE: Problem with "M-Audio 49e keystation"

The 49e has been a real pain--especially if you have previously used another M-audio controller on the same machine. I just spent 3 hours to get mine working on XP (with a Creative sound card). In summary--for my machine--Windows XP kept putting the old WDM driver back (vintage 2001), even though I installed the M-Audio. I had to finally use the 'Add New Hardware Wizard' and force it to install the non-certified M-Audio drivers that were supposedly installed when running the M-Audio installer. (Skip internet search, and browse to M-Audio folder in Program files, it will eventually find them.) There are two M-Audio USB drivers that need to be 'forced' via New Hardware Wizard. But Windows thinks its drivers are a better match and even though 'device is working properly' it doesn't get recognized in your software. After I go rid of the WDM drivers and replaced them with the 2 USB ones from M-Audio, my DAW finally recognized the keyboard. I even went through regedit to clean up all the M-Audio stuff so I could get a fresh install. I don't know if this makes enough sense, but good luck.

SOURCE: M-Audio KeyStudio is connected using the USB cable

Soltion is to download the software for Micro USB from M-Audio website and connect the USB of the Micro USB to your computer with headphones and mic connected to it and connect the USB cable from the M-Audio KeyStudio keyboard to the computer and the Pro Tools M-Powered Essential software will work.

SOURCE: i have driver installed but every time i plug in

Just what the message means- USB devices should draw only 200ma or so. My guess is that the M-Audio device has a shorted capacitor inside and that causes high current draw. It needs to be serviced or replaced.

Those error codes don't really mean very much to the general consumer, but blue screens of deaths are caused by bad RAM memory in your computer, not viruses. I'm going to take a guess that your computer is either several years old and/or it constantly get quite warm? Heat can shorten the life of computer components by quite a bit. You may need to get one of your RAM cards replaced to solve this issue.

There's a free program called Memtest86 that you can run to determine if this is the case. It will scan all your memory and look for bad sectors. You can download it here: and burn it to a CD. What it does is create a bootable CD that will execute the program as the computer turns on to scan all the memory. There are full instructions on their website. The process can take an hour or two depending on how much memory your computer has, and if it turns up any bad sectors then you know what your problem is.

A computer can run with bad sectors in the memory, but it makes it unstable that it will keep bluescreening, so if you have bad sectors in your memory it might be better just to replace the RAM. Luckily, this isn't too expensive. For instance, if your computer has 4GB of memory, it probably has 2 2GB RAM cards installed. You can get a 2GB replacement notebook memory for, I'd say $30 or $40. Installing RAM is very simple, and if you're willing to install it yourself, it won't cost you more than that.

Driver for Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K16D

Suggest you try this, Chris;

Go to Device Manager.

Start > Right-click on My Computer > Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list > Left-click on the Hardware tab. Left-click on Device Manager

Win Vista/ Win 7:
Windows logo button > Right-click on Computer > follow the above ]

When Device Manager loads click on the + sign, to the left of DVD/CD-ROM drives.
Right-click right on the name of the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

Left-click on Uninstall.

A Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up; "Warning you are about to uninstall this device"
It's OK. Click on OK.

Now close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart your computer.

(WinXP: Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart
Win Vista/Win 7: Windows logo button > Restart )

When Windows fully loads you will get a pop-up, out of the system tray, "Found new hardware device", and perhaps another one, "Found Pioneer DVD-RW"

Windows has the habit of losing drivers. Let's see if this 'slaps Windows around'.


[Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Windows XP/Vista/7 is the O/S, the optical drive is the device ]

You can download all the drivers you need for Lenovo 3000 Y410 Laptop from the below link

Just scroll down the page for Audio drivers for both win XP and Vista,click on the blue version number to download the one you want.

Note : Incase you have win XP,some people has issues installing the xp driver with sp3 installed,the driver seems to work with only sp1 and sp2.So if u have SP3 and unable to install xp driver, do one of the following.
1) Uninstall SP3 and install SP2 and then try installing the driver for XP
2) Download Vista driver and install it with windows compatibility mode set to XP SP2.
