: : I have a Yamaha S80 hooked up to my computer with Windows XP via a Midiman 2x2 midi interface through the USB port. My computer recognizes the hardware, but when I open Finale 2001 or XGWorks lite, and I play on my keyboard, it's not recording. What do I need to do?

: I just bought an S80 two weeks ago. I have it hooked up to my computer similar to you only I'm using and Midiman Midisport 4x4, a Dell Computer running Windows XP and Cakewalk Audio Pro 9. I also have an Alesis QS7.1 hooked up to the midi interface. Everything works fine except I get an error message whenever I try to open XGWorks Lite. I'm convinced that the XGWorks Lite that came on the CD with the keyboard is not Windows XP compatible. I've had similar problems with other software so I think my assumption is correct. I have been searching to find out if this is true. No luck so far.

Have you gotten the latest patch/update to I think 3.07 that will work with XP? I had to install the older version that came with my Yamaha S03 synthesizer and then installed the update and it works ok. I haven't delved too far into using XGWorks and it seems to be able to do quite a bit. I have toyed with Sonar 2.0 XL as well but use XGWorks mainly due to sometimes using XG voices which aren't recognized by any other software. Try the update and see if things fall into place. Sounds like you need the update to XGWorks.
