    Akai MPD16 issues with XP..

    Sign in to disable this ad
    ok, so I purchased my mpd16 through guitar center and I only recieved the mpd16 and the usb cable. I plugged it into my computer which operates on windows 2000 I believe.. and it works fine.

    Now I plugged it into.. my XP comp... and it isnt' recognized... but I recieved a file from a guy off of this site a while back.. that will install the driver or is the driver...

    it's MPD16.sys = the file name.

    does anyone know how to install this ? or get my akai mpd 16 working , I've gone to the website and all they have is the utility, NOT the driver..

    What's the difference between the utility and the drivers?

    Makes sense. Maybe someone can send you the .inf files and the drivers. I would think that you'd need more than the .sys file.

    my computer often crashes when i plug in my MPD16, and the blue screen message reads that it's due to the MPD16.sys file. i'ma try to wipe it out and reinstal (off my orig install disc,) and then we'll see how it all works out.

    (otherwise, when the computer doesn't crash, the sucker works dandy, using Live 6, Ableton)

    I try to remove the buggy mpd16.sys instal via the add/remove programs in the control bar... and it does a little process and givesme an error, 'Fatal error during install'

    so i try to remove it via system32 folder, can't find it there, what is up???

    what can we do?

    I'm surprised your having problems with XP. Well not really because I did too. But the MPD is absolutely not compatible with Vista. Which sucks because I've upgraded.
