RE: Yamaha USB Midi drivers, AW1600 and Sonar 5
No, they have never shown up in Options/Midi Device, ticked or unticked. That has always been suspicious especially when they do show up in the systray function to "Safely Remove" them just like they were a USB thumb or other device like a Firewire drive. The version in the utility is 2.2.0. I have been using a USB keyboard recently but this problem occurred well before I started using it. I can't see there being a conflict there but I have disconnected the keyboard and ran through the uninstall and reinstall process and still no go.
I have been in touch with Yamaha and they are recommending using the latest drivers, which I am, and have only offered the advice of being meticulous about the order of when to turn on the AW unit during the install process. I am getting ready to start hacking the registry to see if there is some way I may be able to more thoroughly uninstall the drivers. Scary stuff, that.
