    Default PC Based Recording Software (Help)

    Hi, I need some guidance. I purchased the M-Audio Black Box a few months expecting to use it with a new laptop. Well, I got the computer but M-Audio doesn't support XP Media (and according to them they don't plan to). I tried to wipe the XP Media and install my copy of XP Home but just ran into more problems then what I considered worth it.

    I need some help picking out whatever it is I need to do the following:

    -PC/Laptop based
    -Record Bass direct via USB
    -Record Guitar direct via USB
    -Drum Loops
    -Available through Musicians Friend
    -Cost about $500.00, maybe a little more

    So, if somebody could check out MF.com and list what you would buy according to what im willing to spend it would be a great help to me.

    If your real helpful and would like the M-Audio thing maybe we can work out a deal (it would be a good one).

    Couldn't you format the PC and install the XP home?

    If you want to buy a new unit, try the Presonus Firepod, it's not USB but firewire, and it's pretty good.

    When I tried to put XP Home on the computer it didn't load a bunch of drivers (like the drivers for the LAN Card!). I called up Gateway's tech support and the dude on the other line said they don't support XP Home on my machine (which sounds crazy to me).

    I'm sure that if you look on technical data of your pc, you'll find that the chipset is a common one. This means that you'll be able to find all the drivers you need. From what I recall there is no specific hardware which works only on XP media and not on PRO/Home. XP media needs some selected hardware, but it's normal PC hardware, you'll find on many others PCs...Usually you have the opposite problem: some hardware not compatible with XP media

    I don't understand where the problem is, the computer is physically the same as any other that would run XP Home. But every time I tried to stick Home on this computer the drivers for the LAN card wouldn't load. If I can't communicate out or in how can I update the drivers?
