Oxygen 8 and XP problems..

Has anyone else had problems installing an Oxygen 8 keyboard on XP? I've gone through the motions many time but it still will not recognize the drivers.

I started by downloading the most recent XP install file from m-audio, followed the instructions, and went through that XP drive auto register thingy afterwards. It would not come up with any errors during the windows driver installations, but then would give me the 'Finish' box displaying that the device could not be installed.

Any ideas? :confused:

yeah, I know it has to do if three times. Once for USB driver, the Keystation driver, and then the MIDI driver.. but after every element is installed, I get that 'Device could not be installed' message... arghghgh..

could be your motherboard. if it's one of those integrated boards(built in sound/video cards etc.) then I've seen many instances like this where it just wont work until you get a decent board.

Alot of the gear you buy is made with a half decent computer in mind so when you go using stuff that isn't genuine intel you run into problems more often than not.

yeah sorry, here's some specs if it would help:

AMD XP 1800
Asus A7V333
Audiophile 2496
USB connections are on-board (but I have never had USB connectivity issues in the past.)


oh! I should also mention that I have an Evolution UC-16 connected as well.. any idea on the likeliness of a conflict between these two?

it'a an Asus board so it should be kosher I don't know about the AMD chip though. some companies will specify intel chipsets ask oxygen 8 support if their drivers work with the configuration you have there.?!

Oxygen 8 is made by M-Audio, so the AMD chip should be fine. The processor type probably wouldn't prevent you from installing it, I would think it would just cause really shitty performance.

without having experienced it myself I would agree with you. But I have so I wont. the processor can affect installation. it's rare but it does happen.
