Kawai CN41 electric piano will not show up in Audio MIDI Setup.

Hello,
I have a Kawai CN41 Piano that I would like to connect to my Macbook via USB to control some midi functions in Logic Express (incredible software by the way...)
The Manual that came with the piano says that it should just work. But for maximum clarification, I'll retype what the manual says.
"The CN41 piano can be connected with a personal computer with a USB cable for excahanging MIDI data. You need a USB Driver installed in your computer.
[For Windows XP/ME users]
A standard USB driver is already installed in your computer. You don't need to install a new driver.
[For Windows 2000/98SE users]
You need to install the desigated driver in your computer. Visit the KAWAI website at http:/www.kawai.co.jp/english/Download1.html and download the program.
[For Macintosh users]
Macintosh OSX automatically recognizes our USB interface. No Special driver is needed. Older Macintosh OS are not supported by us. If you have an older Macintosh OS, please us an appropriate MIDI interface and MIDI cables when connecting the CN41 piano to a macintosh computer.
NOTE:
When both MIDI jacks and USB port are connected, USB has priority.
When connecting USB cable to the CN41 piano, first connect the USB cable and then turn the power of the CN41 piano on.
It may take some time to start communication when the CN41 piano is connected to the computer via USB. When USB communication is unstable with connection via hub, connect the USB cable directly to the USB port of the computer.
Turning the power of CN41 piano on/off or disconnecting the USB cable while the follwing actions may cause unstable communication.
while installing USB driver
while booting up the computer
while MIDI application is working
while communicating with the computer
while the computer is in energy saver mode
* If you have any problem with USB communication, consult the instruction manual of your computer and check your computer setup.
* The USB-MIDI conversion board TID10000934 used in the CN41 piano is approved to show the USB logo. The USB logo can be used only for the product which is approved by USB-IF (USB Implements Fourm Inc.) test.
* Windows is registered trademark of Microsoft Corporation.
* Macintosh is registered trademark of Apple Computer, Inc."
So when i follow the directions just like the manual says the only thing that happens is my mouse stops working for about 30 to 45 seconds. After it starts working, nothing whatsoever in the department of MIDI. It won't even show up in the Audio MIDI Setup application. Also, I'm not 100% positive about this, but I don't think it's showing up in the System Profiler as well.
I've tried pushing the rescan button in Audio MIDI Setup, nothing.
I've repeated everything with a different usb cable with no improvement.
And I even contacted Kawai Technical Support. The guy I talked to via email said that he wasn't a mac guy but he'd ask his friends who were if they had any problems, his friends told him that everything was working fine for them. Then he told me to go and buy a USB-MIDI interface and plug it into the traditional MIDI ports on the CN41 and see if that would work. (I really don't want to do that, one of the reasons I bought this piano is the midi-straight-to-computer-via-usb-cable-connection connection. Buying a little usb interface would defeat the point. Although, I'll probably buy one down the road eventually. I would just like it to work.)
This piano is really nice, It has keys that feel like the real thing and using it to write some tracks in Logic Express would be a delight if it would work. If I could, I would take this issue to the Apple store in Salt Lake City, but I'm thinking that I would also have to take the piano and its kinda big. I'm using a Macbook running OS X Leopard 10.5.4 with a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2 Gigs of ram. I also run a Line 6 Toneport UX2, I'm not sure if there could be any Hardware conflicts, but I'm not much of a computer guy so I figured I'd just let you know as much as I can.
Aside from this thing with the piano, OSX has worked beautifully! I will never buy a Windows running machine again. And the few times when I'm forced to use one, (Work and stuff) I get really cranky.
Thank you for your time,
Jon Worms
P.S. I'm more than willing to scan the manual and email it for you upon request, I tried to find a link to it somewhere with no luck. But you know, thats just my luck. :P

Hey Rob, Thanks for responding!
As far as I can see there is not. The piano does have 3 usb ports on it though. 2 A size ports to go to Kawai approved devices, such as a hard drive for recording directly to portable memory. These plugs are labeled USB to Device. Then it has one B size plug that is Labeled USB to Host. The manual says that this is the one to connect to the computer.
USB Controls do exist though. But manual states that they are for when you plug in a small hard drive/flash drive. The controls allow you to create new folders and move recordings around on a flash drive. And without a hard drive plugged into one of the A size ports I don't get anything but an error message.
Tomorrow I'm going to try and get it to work on a windows box. Maybe i'll have a little luck.
Thanks for your help.

  • Built in microphone not an option for Audio MIDI Setup

    Hi! I am using a Macbook Pro, updated up to 10.7.5 I can't update any higher due to lack of sufficient memory. Anyway, I've been trying to use Soundflower to begin recording Minecraft videos, and upon setting it up I noticed my Audio MIDI Setup does not have the Built in Microphone option. Without it, I cannot use Soundflower. I watched videos back when 10.7.5 was the newest update and they have this option in their Audio MIDI Setup. Why don't I? Can someone help me figure this out?

    Hi krk102588 - welcome to the forum!
    I've just come across your post, and cannot believe that no-one replied to your issue before now!
    So if you're still around......
    You just click on the iMovie tool with the microphone icon on it. That opens a floating window showing audio levels etc. Click on a clip where you want the voice-over to occur, and after the 'getting ready' beeps, start talking! Simple. No need to fiddle with System Prefs/Sound, unless the Internal Microphone is not selected.

  • I would like to use time Machine to back up to a network SMB drive. I can see the drive on my desktop but it will not show in the time machine window to be able to select it

    I currently have a mini server (OSX10.8.5, server 2.2.2) that I am using Time Machine to back up 4 external drives that are connected to the server via firewire 800. I would like to use Time Machine to back up to a windows network SMB drive. I can see the drive on my desktop but it will not show in the time machine window to be able to select it for use.
    Can this be done
    Thanks for any and all help

    The supported targets for Time Machine backups are local (direct-connected) disks, and network targets include Time Capsule, a disk hanging off the current-generation AirPort (though not earlier AirPort devices), and OS X Server systems.
    The Time Machine storage is based on the HFS+ file system, so I would not expect TM to work with SMB file services.
    While there are hacks to allow Time Machine to access network drives, I would not consider those to be reliable. Skim the forum and the 'net for related details, and for previous discussions of setting this up and the related issues that can arise.
    Remember to test the recovery with whatever you decide to use; whole point of backups is the ability to restore the data, after all.
    If you want to learn more about Time Machine, Pondini is an excellent resource.

  • My apple TV will not show my iPhotos travel photos in sequence. I set up a sequence of photos that STAY in sequence when viewing in iPhoto on my iMac, but they do not show in sequence when my Apple TV shows them on my TV screen. My Apple TV is MC 572C/A

    My Apple TV will not show my photos in iPhoto on my iMac in the same sequence of images that I can see when viewing the iPhoto photos on my iMac. This is especially frustrating when I try to show my travel pictures in sequence on my TV. I have to resort to showing them on my iMac which defeats the principle purpose for purchasing my MacTV. Does anyone have a solution?
    My Apple TV is Model MC 572C/A and the software is 5.2.1 (6025)
    My iMac is Mac OSX version 10.7.5
    THANKS!
    Doug May

    I can't recall whether slideshows are ordered by title or date, but you can manually re-arrange the albums in iPhoto, then batch change them once you have the order you want.

  • Apple TV Purchases Backed Up In Itunes But Will Not Show In Home Sharing On Ipad

    This problem is bizzare.
    Basically I have had Apple TV for a while but really only made some purchases from the interface on the TV the other day. (Besides Rentals)
    Normally I buy the movie directly on my macbook and download it.  Then go watch it on my Apple TV.
    This time I bought on Apple TV then went to Itunes and downloaded it off the cloud.  Any movie I have purchased from the Apple TV will not show up on Home Sharing  (Sharing from my Macbook to my Ipad2)  Even though it was purchased with the same apple id and the movies are physically downloaded to itunes on the macbook.
    If I pull up Sidebar in Itunes 11 and click itunes store and then purchases my movies show up.  (That's how I downloaded them to itunes)  Although, if I click "purchased" from the Sidebar (Under Itunes Store) the movies purchased from the Apple TV do not show up.  It's almost like Apple Tv let me back them up but did not associate them with the itunes account.

    I agree with what you're saying. I just bought Skyfall through my Apple TV because it would allow me to download 1080p (my PC wouldn't) and I specifically recall it saying that this media would be sharable...yet when I'm on my iPad Mini it doesn't show up in Videos > Shared along with all my other non-Apple purchases. This doesn't seem right.
    I tried copying the m4v file to my desktop, renaming it and tried to then import it back into my iTunes library but it didn't do any action. It must recognize the DRM protection.
    I realize now that using my iPad going to iTunes > Purchased I only have the option to download from the cloud, and not to home share it from my PC. I agree that filling up my HD space on my device is not a reasonable solution.
    I see it listed in iTunes on my PC and I right-clicked and selected "download 1080p". Now I have the movie file sitting on my hard drive but I still have the same condition.
    When I checked "Get Info" it shows up as a "Protected MPEG-4 Video File. I wonder if this has something to do with it. Frankly I find the whole purchase/library system very confusing. I never am sure which device to purchase it with or how it will be sharable. Very frustrating. It should be much simpler across all iOS devices. I think DRM issue have a lot to do with the problem.
