A WORKAROUND HAS BEEN FOUND.
this is a bit of an unconventional workaround. windows plug and play drivers wont work, so get rid of windows.
we are relying on Linux's weird abilities to connect to USB devices. we will also use the linux windows layer to get into Vyzex editor.
I have tested this with complete sucess.
pocket pod and usb cable
ok, this is a WORKAROUND for pocket pod not working in windows.
once you have ubuntu installed or duel booted on your system, let it do its autoupdates, then go to the terminal and type in
"apt-get install wine" (without quotes).
next, download the WINDOWS VYZEX EDITOR.
extract it then right click and select "run with WINE"
it will install into the wine hard disk.
go into the wine disk, find the exe for the app, and run it.
it should load everything.
if it doesnt, go to wine config, and make sure that you are using a suitible audio driver. (just enable them all in the wine config if you are unsure).
under midi devices, pocket pod should show up.
you can download the ISO for ubuntu here: www.ubuntu.com
you can also request a free CD of ubuntu here: http://shipit.ubuntu.com/
they will mail you a CD for free, no scam. ive done it many times myself.
