Keyboard won't play

Try: turning off keyboard and restarting the computer.
Start up Novation until completely loaded.
Switch on keyboard the set id ports....worth a shot(?)

Keyboard communication can be temperamental when interfacing with computers. Especially when dealing with audio problems, latency problems, inputs and outputs.

Follow the directions specifically in the Novation only takes one wrong step to stuff the whole thing up ! :)

There is no fuse... the USB is electronically fused in the COMPUTER, not the NIO.

The USB units will NOT activate or light UNLESS the correct driver is loaded and active in the computer. In the Windows type environment you ALSO have to select the external device as the default as opposed to the computer's internal audio system. The MAC likely has a similar setting.

Do you need a computer to use the Novation UltraNova 37-Key Analog-Modeling Synthesizer

The Keyboard comes with inbuilt sounds (Approx 300 Presets and 200 user patches), so you can play it Live without a computer by simply taking AUX outs and it has a wall power supply adapter. You can also connect it to your computer via USB for additional sounds through VST instruments and Plugins. The USB also powers up the Keyboard without the adapter. Hope this helps.

You should be able to get a replacement part for that. Also depending on how tech savvy you are, might be able to open it up and resolder the USB port back onto the board. No idea of the cost of the part however, depends on the manufacturers part list.

I don't have a solution for you, but I can tell you why its happening. The issue is caused by your i-series processor and how it handles USB Priorities. Many of us have the same issue with these processors. Novation claims to be working on a new software patch or driver to solve this issue, but I have not seen anything yet. Send a request to Novation about this issue to add to the list of people that want a fix. Hope this helps. --Scott

Keyboard failure and diskette drive 0 seek failure

How old is the computer, could it still have warranty? USB ports are often protected with fuses. Some latest stuff has resetable fuses, but many are one-time that do not heal. Did you try the keyboard in the front USB's The thing of biggest concern though is that this happened in coincidence, meaning you may have a motherboard hardware failure. (the reason I mentioned warranty)

My diNovo mini Bluetooth 2.0 # 830-000034 usb is broke

You can order the USB for $10.00 on the website. Also you can return the entire product to the store you purchased it from and they might replace it. I broke mine and tech support sent me another free of charge. I thought it would take too long for delivery so I returned mine to CompUSA and they exchanged it wihtout a hassle. I recently broke mine again(girlfriend dropped the laptop with the USB attached) two days ago and I am trying to find the extra one tech support sent otherwise I will order one for $10 this time around. Hopefully this helped you out some.

What is a 301 Keyboard Error and how do I correct this problem.

The motherboard has device controllers that read id #'s of your hardware. When a device fails, a fail code is thrown out which is attached to the device id. Sometimes when en error has been cleared the code for that device may not. Try to boot the computer with the mouse removed & a different keyboard. Shut down & install the mouse & original keyboard. Let me know what happens
