I have 2 music sequencing programs.Band in a box and Sonar cakewalk. The B in a Box program works fine, proving the sound card can output midi, but the sonar program only gives me the option of "midi mapper" as a default midi output. My question is, how do I check out my sound cards midi options? I realize this may be an issue with the program, however I would still like to know about my sound card. Regards

hi, I think this may help. what you need to do first of all is change the default player for DVD's from Toshiba Video Player to Windows Media Player, cant remember off hand how to do that but should be in manual, but try this. go to windows control panel, select 'Default Programs' and click on it, then select 1st option 'Set Your Default Programs' a list of all programs will come up, look for Windows Media Player and click on it, then choose one of the options on the right. The top one sets as default, the bottom one allows you to set file types to open with the program. this should work as it is telling your system to launch that program for DVD's etc, If you cant find your control panel, simply click Start and type it in the little box that appears just above it. hope this helps
If other formats of audio files like MP3 - Wav etc. can be played on the computer, but not MIDI files:
1. Open the "Controle panel". 2. Open "Sounds". 3. Under Tab - Volume - activate "Advanced". 4. If the "SW Synth" is Muted - remove the "V" in the box. 5 If the volume is set to minimum - increase the Volume.
You should nov be able to play Midifiles - with sound. (above routine is for Windows XP)
You could buy what's called a "Midi to USB" and then you could use many programs, such as Virtual DJ, Sonar, ProTools, Reason, and so much more. So yes, there is a ton of software out there for your board, you just need the software, and the unit for the midi conversion. :] Hope this helped.
You should always remove and uninstall programs from your PC that you are not using. It could be beneficial to your computer's productivity and functioning to free up space. You run the risk of running out of space on your computer if you add too many programs without uninstalling some. It is a relatively easy process, but you should be sure you are not removing a program that is necessary to the operation of your computer.
Click "Start" and select "Programs." Click "Control Panel" and "Programs" and "Programs and Features." Browse the list of programs on your computer and select one that you want to remove. Click "Uninstall." You may be prompted for permission from the administrator to remove the program. Enter the administrator password or confirmation if necessary. Check the properties of the program if it is not listed in "Programs." You can do this by right-clicking on the program desktop icon and selecting "Properties." Check to see if the program is compatible with the version of Windows that you are using. Click "Start" and "Run," to manually remove the programs if the uninstall option does not completely uninstall the program. Type "Regedt32" in the box and click "OK." Locate the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" registry key and click "Export" under the "File" tab. Click "Desktop" on the "Export Registry File" dialog box. Type "Uninstall" in the "File Name" box and select "Save." The left panel of the Registry Editor will display the programs that are currently installed. Right-click the key in the left panel of the Registry Editor window. Click "Delete." Click "Yes" when you are asked to confirm deletion of the program. Click the "File" menu and select "Exit." This will exit the Registry Editor. Click "Start" and "Control Panel" and click "Add or Remove Programs." Confirm that the program is no longer listed here.
Try loacting one of the tracks in Win Explorer then highlighting and right clicking it and selecting Open With and selecting WinAmp. If that works OK then you will need to change the file type association for the WinAmp extension and making it delault to WinAmp instead of Nero.
Change the program that opens a type of file
If you double-click a file in Windows and it opens in the wrong software program, follow these steps to choose the program you would prefer that file use. You can change this setting for an individual file, or you can tell Windows to open all files of that same type in the software program you choose.
Open the folder that contains the file you want to change.
Right-click the file that you want to change, and then, depending on the type of file, either click Open With or point to Open With and then click Choose Default Program.
Click the program that you want to use to open this file.
Do one of the following:
If you want all files of that type to open in the same software program, select the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box, and then click OK.
If you want only that file to open in the software program this one time, clear the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box, and then click OK.
