    I´ve the problem with my green/blue midisport 8/8s too.
    Win7 can´t find the device. There is shown a code43 error message.

    I´ve installed the latest installer.

    Greetings from Germany,

    Me too! I have a Mac G5 running OS X 10.5.8 and after everything I've tried my Green/Blue 8x8 is still 'greyed out'. It did work under OS X 10.4.11 (most of the time!) but now I can't program anything in my studio. I've sent you a PM Jared.

    I' am using the Midi-device Midisport 2x2 (USB, lime green) with Cakewalk Sonar X1d Studio, Win7 64bit.
    When I start my computer the USB device is recognised in the system manager immediately and Midisport 2x2 is
    connected to USB (LED light is ON).

    Now I start the software Sonar (or other soft-synths) and I get the message that Midisport 2x2 is missing. After 1-2 minutes the Midi-device is connected to the system. I'am wondering, because the device is already recognized in the system-manager.

    Everything works fine, but how can I accelerate Win 7 to connect the Midi-device faster?
    I installed the lastest driver 6.1.2.
    Do I need a new firmware for my Midisport 2x2?

    Hello Jared!

    I have received the 2 EPROM chips, did the update but
    I have trouble installing Midisport driver 6.1.2 on my win 7 64bit.

    First "Installer Error: Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable. Message: Out of Disk Space - Volume "E:"; required space: 0 KB; available space: 0KB. Free some disk space and retry"
    I disable the referenced drive from the Windows Device Manager and it works.

    Then I have runtime error, but it works install in compatibility mode for XP

    my midisport 8x8s has a second life too :-)

    Thanks for this great support!!!

    I have the midisport uno usb midi interface and the driver software wouldn't instal. I went here: http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=support&tab=faqs I followed the steps and downloaded the software update but the midi cables still aren't translating to my Windows 7 computer. Do you think you could send me the updated firmware as well? Or perhaps that isn't applicable in my case? If not any suggestions?
