Musiland Monitor 01 USD 24/192 USB to SPDIF - Page 58

post #856 of 903

IIRC Musiland first said isochronous, then quickly said "async"...but god knows what happens in their (crappy) drivers. A good rule of thumb is to never believe what manufacturers state...w/o proofs. The same way companies that sell grossly overpriced TAS1020B firmwares will diss the competition whenever they get the chance.

So nobody know the reponse in these 57 pages ?

 

I have not buy the Musiland monitor 1 USd for the moment. A way to know if it is, or not, working in bulk mode is to build a very long USB wire (with phone wire for example) : with a certain length, there will be transmission errors: If the protocol is bulk, the latency should increase but there will be no mistake (like with network protocol). If the protocol is isochronous, there will be errors (pop in the sound).

 

May be there is a software solution to know, with some Windows tools what is the USB protocol used...

Hi,

 

I received a Musiland monitor 1 USD next week but I have some "lisense invalid" problems :

- The drivers on the CD are the 1.0.7 : "lisense invalid"

-I tried the 1.0.5, 1.06, 1.0.12, same thing : "lisense invalid"

- With the 1.0.3 firware, I had no message but the player don't play music to the Musiland output.

-If I go back to 1.0.5 (or highest) from 1.0.3 : "lisense invalid"

 

I asked Musiland for the licence.key, I'm waiting for It. I hope it will be better after.

 

Otherwise, I started to do some tests using a software called "Advanced USB Port Monitor". With Windows XP, the Musiland driver is recognized as "Bulk Transfer"( not isochronous/asynchronous). I'll try to have more info, but as my Musiland does not seem to want to work,it is a bit difficult.

Hi, always me redface.gif

 

I sent my request for the licence.key file 5 days ago (thursday the 13). I immediately received a reply

Your email has been received, please wait for reply.

But nothing new for the moment...frown.gif

 

I'm going to resend the mail.

I Receive my license.key this morning : doesn't work frown.gif

Always the "license invalid" message with all the firmware (1.0.5 to 1.0.13).

I don't understand, I tried all possible combinations, installing firmwares, uninstalling, rebooting, connecting,unconnecting, deleting the registry key, changing computer...

 

I asked Musiland for another license.key.

the only thing I can say is that at some point my 01USD was whining about the license, so I asked the manufacturer for an update. It took them several days to get back to me, so in the meantime I tried to install it again and it worked. Still, I installed the update they gave me by email but it was the same fw version.

 

did you try several different versions of their (buggy) drivers?

post #862 of 903


I seem to remember that updating the firmware must be done in a 32 bit machine... Also, there is a version of the drivers that does not require firmware update. I believe the drive that came with the device in the CD should work right away.

I tried all the firmware at Musiland download : http://www.musiland.com.cn/downloads/drivers/ and http://www.musiland.com.cn/downloads/drivers/history/ 

For information the last one is 1.0.13.0

The 1.0.3 doesn't give me the "license invalid" message. I get it here : http://coolfungadget.com/musiland/Monitor_Series/

But this firmware 1.0.3 doesn't work : the player do not play the music (like in pause).

 

I tried only the MlcyMon drivers (supposing the other ones are not for Monitor 01 USD).

 

I don't understand if there is only one Monitor 1USD version or two, or if there is only different firmware. It seems some download gives both the firmware and the  drivers and others only the drivers.

 

Sorry again for my poor english.redface.gif

My computer is 32 bits...

post #865 of 903

License invalid only means the firmware was not updated. The only reason to upgrade the firmware (and that is the only time firmware upgrade was provided) is to enable a security feature so that musiland drivers can only be used on musiland devices... I would retry the firmware update again.

 

PS: There is a difference between "driver" and "firmware". Firmware is MlCyMonAct.zip

No,

 

For example the last MlCyMon_1.0.13.0_build20110117.exe  download : running the exe file and pluging the Musiland, you get 3 hardware installations :

musil2.JPGmusil3.JPGmusil1.JPG

 

I know that is in French langage but you can see the name in english wink.gif

 

Musiland Monitor Bus Driver

Musiland Monitor 01

Musiland Monitor Firmware driver

 

not all the download have the Firmware driver.

 

The result is "License invalid" in the title bar with my Musiland Monitor :

I can then try running the MlCyMonAct stuff to update my license, running MlCyMonProg.exe with the license.key sent by Musiland :

I suppose this tool gives an encryption key for it to work with newer firmware .. I try ..... ....

post #867 of 903

...I tried to run this tool after different download installations : 1.0.5, 1.0.6 ,1.0.9, etc...

I always have the "invalid license" message .

post #868 of 903

I can't read French, but that looks like the standard "unsigned" driver installation warning message. Just click continue. The drivers are unsigned with the Microsoft key. Many people do that (I think to avoid fees?) but if you trust the driver, then go ahead and install it. If you don't trust the driver, then you can bail out...

post #869 of 903

hi,

I know that of course.wink.gif

I only show these screenshots to show you the drivers name.

Anyway, I'm waiting for a new license.key file from www.musiland.com.cn. If this new one doesn't work I will return back the Musiland monitor.

post #870 of 903

But can you play music? It seems you have installed the drivers.
