I know this has been covered a bunch, but I just cant seem to find an answer. Ill throw it out there hoping it sticks. Trying to learn to play the piano as an adult. I just bought Playground sessions and a used Yamaha YDP-141. Bought a 2.0 midi cable from amazon. Running 64bit on my 2016 dell xps laptop. I keep trying to install driver, but I get code 25001. My computer recognizes my midi cable, but it will not let me download driver. I just don't know what to do at this point and how I trouble shoot it. Do i email yamaha? do I email Dell. I am super motivated to practice and learn its been a life long goal. I am so discouraged and frustrated. thanks ahead of time for any imput..

Welcome

There are three different drivers available to download.


One for a MAC and two for Windows with one being for 32 bit versions of Windows and the other for the 64 bit versions.

You should be able to download the correct driver direct to your computer and work from there. If you get error messages you may have to disable for a brief period the anti virus system and by that I mean just long enough to download the driver file.

The file will probably be in your Downloads folder in a Zip file format. This will need extracting to a known location of say a folder called DP142 and then manually point Windows to this folder after you select Update Driver in Device Manager.

We had a similar issue a while back so do check out the thread concerned

Sorry for the late response. Thank you for responding to my question! After trying what you said and reading and re- reading that article and a another 2 hours of trouble shooting I finally got it to work. Apparently my Dell did not like the $14 amazon cable I purchased, So I went ahead and ordered the Yamaha one. in about 2 min I was up and running. Again, thank for the response.

Cheers,

I'm glad you finally got it working!

If you were talking about those MIDI-to-USB converter cables with MIDI DIN plugs on one end and a USB plug on the other end, the inexpensive ones you see everywhere online are often problematic for one reason or another. It's usually best to pay a bit more and buy one from a big-name, reputable company.
