V_Synth XT and WinXP

Postby rcraven » 07:56, 18 July 2017

Hi

WinXP SP3

Tried to install the Roland drivers on WinXP, but when the USB is plugged into the V-Synth XT the WinXP driver installation thinks it is a "Standard USB Hub" so, of course , it won't accept the driver inf file I point to.
Any thoughts?

Installed it on Win7 64 and it seemed to work OK, but couldn't get the Arp to work. (Arp works OK on the Midi at the back).

Great machine if I could only get these few problems sorted.

All the best

Hi, just keeping you all updated with this bizarre driver installation.

Finally found the "Standard USB Hub" in the inf file in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers and it loaded then changed to "Generic USB Hub" and so I pressed finished.
Then the diver installation screen appeared again looking for the Roland V-synth dirver. Yah !!!
I pointed to the freshly downloaded drivers which it happily loaded.
Finally the end dialog appeared saying that there was an error "The driver class would not allow the driver to be installed"
Tried it many times, but no joy.

Any one have any ideas ??
Thanks
Royce

Hi rcraven
I gave up in the end and just bought a usb to midi lead on Amazon for a few quid.Works fine.
If you do get one of these, just remember to turn the laptop off and on after the adapter has auto loaded its driver.It should be plain sailing from then on.
Oddly,I can get the XT to work with my laptop (WinXP ) in storage mode though, using usb on the XT.
Hope this helps
Andy

Thanks Andy. I also gave up and just use a Midi interface.
