Did you get it used or brand new?

M-Audio is notorious for hardware related problems, mainly the USB ports. After awhile the ports wear and fail to hold the tight connection needed to keep the board fully functional. But I've seen the same problem with new boards too because of bad soldering.

If it's new then don't bother wasting time trying to figure it out. Just exchange it and save yourself the headaches. You may even want to look another board. If your partial to M-Audio then the Axiom is much better than the Oxygen. Either way, take advantage of the ability to exchange while you can, cause once that's over M-Audio will give you the finger.

Check the fuse which should be close to the power cord on the back. Check it with an ohms meter or replace with a new one.

Which midi cable or USB midi cable should I use for Yamaha DGX 520 model.

It doesn't use a USB to MIDI adapter (such as the UX-16.) It has an onboard MIDI controller and uses a standard USB A-B cable. You just need to install the driver from the CD-ROM or here, and plug it in. You can get the manual from the same page or here. Setup is on page 99.

Check that it is listed in "control panel" "Sounds and devices" as options in the voice, recording, and playback tabs. If not there, you may need a driver for it. There are so many options of software and operating systems for PC's that it is a wonder that any of this works.

Sir i have purchased Roland gw-8 keyboard in the usb port when i put any flash drive it power is shown but it doen't read and it gives message usb memory not ready sir please solve my problem?

Read pages starting with 49 in your user's manual.

You MUST format the USB flash in the GW-8 before it can be used. Formating in a computer MAY b e inadequate as sometimes the formats have special quirks.

Also pay attention to the MAXIMUM file name length... It is 16 characters MAX !!!!

I have the Fostex MR-8 mk II without the burner. I'm having trouble as of late at exporting my finished song to a laptop computer. It's worked fine in the past. Could it be my USB cord is bad? The computer...

USB cords are cheap and can often be found even in Thrift stores... try a new one to eliminate that possibility... I will say they RARELY go bad unless they have been abused.

Remember that reading a USB stick by the computer is FAR different than transfering data from the Fostex...

MAKE SURE the driver for the Fostex in your computer is intact...

OFTEN the stupid DLL files that were working get CLOBBERED by new software and suddenly old things that used to work don't anymore... Thank MS for the stupid thing of allowing new software to change DLL's.

Digitech RP3 Guitar signal processor only lights up.

Check that connectors are seated AND the input and output are correct.

Sometimes1/4 inch plugs are not seated correctely. The power adapter plugs are notorious for not making contact.
