Any electronic device that has smoke coming from it is not a good sign. Whether it can be repaired is debateable (it depends if parts are available and costs). Usually in cases such as this it needs a new circuit board and possible other associated components/devices. I suggest the best solution is to purchase a new Yamaha keyboard as a new model would have new and better features.

How can i conect midi in my pc


Essentially, all you need is a Midi-USB connector that would go from your keyboard to your PC. They're available at any Guitar Center and typically come with installation instructions. There a hundreds of videos on YouTube that show how to do this.
Good luck!

Where can i find windows 7 x 64 drivers please help mee !!!


Your Yamaha DGX 203 Portable Keyboard - USB-MIDI Driver Version 1.2.2 ie. for OS Win9x/ME.

Yahama site does not have the Win7(x64) Drivers ie. USB-MIDI for your Keyboard Model DGX-203

But you can try the USB-MIDI Driver Version 3.1.0 for Windows(R) 7/Vista/XP 64bit for Model DGX-520 @ http://usa.yamaha.com/products/musical-instruments/keyboards/digitalkeyboards/dgx_series/dgx-520/?mode=model

I can't assured you that it will works on your system. Since your Keyboard is no longer in production, I doubt Yahama will provide you with the official USB-MIDI drivers for your Keyboard even you requested for it.

I guess this is an option you can try and hope it works & good luck.

Regards.

I want to transfer some midi files to my Casio LK-230 keyboard. When I plug in the usb cable it does recognize the casio unit but it does not show up on my computer...like there is not unit... How do...


The keyboard will NOT show up on MY COMPUTER as it does not have memory to record and save MIDI files... It will PLAY them real time as the computer sends the data to the keyboard. You can't transfer and save the files IN the keyboard. Some higher level keyboards do have memory and even hard drives... this one does not. This one will have some built in,that you can play but even those you cannot access as if they were memory.
With the USB cable connected, you should be able to see the device listed in the device manager section of the control panel under system hardware.

You will need MIDI cable - widely available from good musical instrument (keyboard) stores and on the internet
For more information about using MIDI on your keyboard see the appropriate section in teh user's manual here http://support.casio.com/pdf/008/ctk_491_01_e.pdf

Casio Privia PX-120 cannot be connected to Reason or FL


When you are using midi the sounds from your keyboard aren't sent anywhere. What happens is control messages are sent over the midi cable from midi out to midi in on the other device which must have midi sounds on it (in your case the sound card) to make any sounds. The messages can be things like note on/of or pitch bend etc. If you want to send messages to produce a result on your laptop and still here something you can loop the messages by running from midi out on the device end ( your laptop) back to midi in on your keyboard. A much better explanation is available here:http://www.indiana.edu/~emusic/etext/MIDI/chapter3_MIDI.shtml I also signed up to this site (its free) that has great people and lots of info:http://www.recordingreview.com/ I recommend downloading Killer Home Recording setting up which at this time is also free and has the best advice you could want in it. I'd also recommend checking out Reaper which is comparable to Reason, Cubase or Protools. If this helps please let me know.

I would like to record my songs compositions in the computer system. pls advise which software and accessories to use. i would also like to have the notations for my compositions, which can be changed...


You haven't said what kind of computer you have but I will recommend a program called Audacity which is very good. It is freeware.You will need a stereo cable with plugs that match the line out jacks on your keyboard on one end and an 1/8" stereo plug on the other. The 1/8" should go into the line in jack on your computers sound card. Audacity is available here:http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ That is to get you started. If you want notation software, I would recommend Finale which you will have to purchase for a full version. Their website is here:http://www.finalemusic.com/ They have trial versions available. Here is a link to another program that might be good although I haven't tried the program:http://www.techspot.com/downloads/1831-magicscore-school.html If you want to use a program to record the midi output of your keyboard, you will have to use a midi cable from the midi out on your keyboard to a midi to usb adapter to your computer. That is the easiest way if your sound card has no midi in/ out jacks. Here is a good link to info about all that:http://www.indiana.edu/~emusic/etext/MIDI/chapter3_MIDI.shtml Let me know if this helps.
