    I can only think that this is a USB problem: One day, I was recording into my computer via the USB port (as I have been for the last year), the next day the computer does not recognize the mixer. Changed cords, changed USB ports on the computer, changed computers, but the mixer is just not being recognized by the computer.

    Is there a history with this mixer and the USB port just going bad?

    I have exactly the same problem. I've been using my Multimix for 2 years and then the USB worked one day and not the next. I remember thinking when I first hooked the mixer up, that the USB port didn't seem too sturdy. It's hard to want to spend a whole lot of money trying to fix such a low cost mixer but I guess I'll try calling Alesis and let you know how it works out.

If you call Alesis technical support number, you can find a dealer. I had a hard time finding one who could fix mine in less than a month, but there are some chain music stores who stock the parts.

Im useing the Yamaha MG24/14FX mixer, and ATM Kustom KSE215 speakers, seems like there isint enough power Granted these speakers are 300 or so watts, had a few problems with these speakers with my old...

The MG24/14FX is a mixer only, with no amplifier built-in. It can't drive speakers directly. You'll need powered speakers or separate amps and speakers.

I have an unlocked iphone 4 but my computer doesn't detect my iphone 4 anymore.

Hi panggalory,
Is your iPhone 4 factory unlocked or jailbroken then unlocked?
Either way, please read the following:
  • Make sure that the USB cable is in good condition
  • Try connecting in different USB ports of your system
  • Reinstall iTunes to the latest version
  • Try connecting your phone in some other computer

The above solutions should work because I myself have faced this problem and these have worked for me. If it still doesn't work, the please let me know.

Multimix 16 usb 2.0 is no longer recognized by computer. Tried multiple cables and 2 computers. Could the usb port on the mixer be fried? Can I get a replacement usb board for this mixer?

Same thing happened to mine when I first got it. Alesis replaced the USB chip at no charge. Worked for a while, but now I only get 10 inputs instead of 18. Love this mixer on so many levels but the USB on it is completely unreliable. When the USB works, it works great. The problem is getting it to stay working. I suggest contacting Alesis for a repair. I'm still wrestling around with them over my 10 input issue. They say when they tested it there was no trouble found. I'm not convinced this is the truth. Good luck!

Device cannot work

Try cleaning your computer for spyware and viruses. Also try cleaning your registry out using a utility. Do your USB ports on the computer work with any other devices? Try using different USB ports and make sure theres no faults in you device list with the USB drivers. Let me know more info. What OS are you using. By unplugging it without safely removing is most dangerous to Flash memory but it's definitely possible to damage a hard drive by doing so. You might have corrupted your drive. Hope this helps.

No usb ports blown

Hi, sorry to hear you are having trouble,
Listen, these macs have the USB Chip butted right up next to the usb connectors, the connection is really solid.... I suspect it is not a connection but the chip itself that has blown.
Probably a small static electricity shock while plugging or unplugging something, sometimes it happens when cleaning, dusting...
So, everything is on the mother board.... and you can't replace just one chip.
All 3 ports are not responding ? it's definitely the USB Chip and possibly more... I assume you cannot operate the mac since no keyboard or mouse will work these machines did not have bluetooth.... :(
You could always try getting a motherboard replacement, but you're probably better off getting the whole machine used and keep yours for parts if you really love that machine...
Apple will fix it for about $600 minimum :(

USB ports

i think there is no need to replace any thing:
  • First check out if the drivers for USB hub properly installed. To check out you should go Device manager and see if there is any component with yellow mark. If yes then re-install driver it will fix your problem.

If above does not fix your problem, then let me know:
  • How you made test and come to know that USB ports or not working?
  • Which OS you are using?
