hi all,

I havent been on reason or ableton in about a year or more. Trouble is i can't get my midi keyboard linked up to either programmes. I'd rather be using reason to be honest.
I am using an oxygen 8v2 controller and reason will just not find it. I have added the device to reason in the control surfaces to reason and have the green tick in the box. in the midi input box i have 3 options:
2-automap midi
automap propellerhad
automap propellerhead mixer
craig-vaio (me-my laptop)
I also had a novation controller linked up which is where the automap comes from but i dont want to use that just yet.
from here on in i'm completely lost.
last time i used this (quite a while ago) it all worked fine.
I'd be eternally grateful if someone could help me
Many thanks,

Silly question maybe but... are the drivers for the keyboard installed?

Apart from that, it could be hardware failure.. like a corrupted sub port or something as stupid as a faulty cable happens to me once, I found after tons of hours trying to get it working... (bought a second hand controller)
