Origin Connection USB driver (XP only):
Origin Connection is fully compatible with Windows XP SP3. It is also compatible with Windows XP SP2 on monocore computer (without hyperthreading). Unfortunately, it encounters some troubles with SP2 dual-core or hyperthreading computers. This issue is due to a problem in Windows XP USB-midi driver. If you encounter this issue, the best way is to install windows XP SP3. Nevertheless, if you want to stay on SP2, you can install the new version of the USB-midi driver which is available here. This file is different for each language system. So if you can’t find the right one, please contact us to get it.
