Topic: Hercules 4mx wont run on windows 10 with virtual dj 7
Greetings fellow audiophiles,

So my problem is this.

I got a new lap top cause my previous one after 6 years made pretty much broke down.

Go the same one just a newer version.

Its a Lenovo 650 standard package and all that jazz. It runs on windows 10

The problem:
Virtual dj and my computer wont recognize that my controller is connected.

Everything is up to date.
I even updated the firmware and drivers that are available on

Plug in the controller, decks A & B light up but thats it.

I go to my hidden icons and the hercules box has a red X through it.

Also the same sound settings ive used on my temporary lap top wont work on the new one. The tempoary lap top where i do have my controller succesffully connected to is at INPUTS: none. OUTPUTS: master: left chan / headphones: right chan SOUND CARD: mono seperated, primary sound card.

This configuration also allows me to use vdj successfully with out the controller and can easily switch back and forth if needed. The temp lap top runs on a bootleg windows 7.

The new lap top however no matter what audio setting i put on it vdj is more or less useless.

So that pretty much it. Let me know if i need to provide you with any more information.

Help me forum dwellers, you are my only help...

Thanks in advance,

Seems like the the problem is that your 4-Mx is not correctly recognized and installed on your new computer. Consequently, it is obvious that VDJ will not be able to use it.

This is easy to verify using the following document:

- Have you tried all the of USB ports on this computer to see if the behavior is the same everywhere ?

- As mentioned on the driver download page, a powered USB hub might be necessary for your DJ controller to be recognized and used properly on recent computers featuring USB 3.0 ports (which is most likely the case with this computer). Have you also tried one ?
