How to restore MPD24 factory presets with Vyzex software

If you've accidentally wiped or altered your Akai MPD24 presets, you might want to restore the factory default ones to start over.

Heres how to restore your MPD24 factory defaults using the Vyzex software:

1. Plug in your MPD24 with USB cable, and then open the Vyzex software.

2. Click File > Open

3. Select Factory SET.SQS, and click open it.

4. You should now see BFD Lite and other details on the Vyzex MPD image.

5. As long as you're on the DATA tab, you should see a PUT SET button available. Press it to transfer the factory presets to your MPD24.

6. An overwrite warning will be displayed. Press YES to overwrite your damaged MPD24 presets with the factory presets.

You'll see a progress bar filling up for about 10 seconds, and then once it disappears, that's it!

You're all done - Enjoy!

I have windows 7 and I've been trying to update my mpd24. I don't have any midi inputs, only the usb cord. I have all the files but nothing seems to work. I did everything the tutorial said but I still get "00 send sysex" on the mpd screen. I've been trying with midi-ox, vyzex, and read just about every tutorial. Any help will be GREATLY appreciated. FYI: The pad was working great on ableton 8 before I 'stupidly' erased the OS. I was thinking the update to 1.09 firmware would be cake... :( \please help.

Gosh this is such great stuff. Nowhere else on the web is there anything as informative I could find about the mpd24.
I would love to be able to do this.
But when I try to open Vyzex, there is an Error that reads:

"Studio

Error!
There are no drivers in
Akai Professional MPD24.ini
to load!

(OK)"

Can anybody help me with what this means?

I've tried << stop rec and pluggin in the MPD24, and followed, the steps, but can't get into Vyzex!

Help please!
