Hi there - anyone using SD Jukebox on more up to date versions of Windows o/s such as Vista successfully?

Roger,

I'm using v2.4 with Windows 8.1 and it works fine. I don't use any compatibility mode.

Best wishes,
Mike

Thanks Mike - v2.4 doesn't seem to like Vista nor does v5 of SD Jukebox - I've noticed that there is a v6.9 but can't get a copy of it.

Tricky to get any of the new versions as far as I can see.

You probably know this page (needs Google translate):

http://av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/software/sdjb/download/index.html

I haven't gone through it all because what I have works ok. It would be good to get a newer version. The Japanese wiki says that there is a V7.

No I didn't know of that site Mike but it as you suggest it really is a struggle to work through it even with a translator. I know it's a bit esoteric but we really coulod do with a simplified english version of this on one of your KN7000 web sites.
Best wishes.
Rog

Yes you're right I'll start working on that... and I'll ask Phil Leader and his wife if they can help as they both speak Japanese. What we could do with is a full copy of the latest version or at least a way of purchasing it. By the way, the V5 Wiki and Panasonic Japan page say that v5 is not Vista compatible. V5 can not be upgraded to V6. The later V6's are Vista compatible as is V7. V7 is only released as V7LE (Light Edition). The Light Editions have most functions but can't be skinned (not an issue for us).

It gets more complicated by the minute. as well as sorting out my vista situation or not I also have a contact in Swansea with a KN2600 who is struggling with all this - and all he wants to do is play some mp3s through his keyboard...

I work in Swansea, I can call in next week if he's still stuck.

Doesn't 2.4 work in Vista? Or can't you go back from V5?

What exact version do you have Roger? 5.0, 5.1, or 5.1LE?

I think I've found a place to purchase it (V6+) but I don't know whether it is an English version, I'm trying to find out.

The version I found is Japanese only. Cost is only 20 but I read that it won't install on windows with English lanuage (I mean, it will refuse to install). I've written to a few friends and to Panasonic to find out more.

I'd be delighted to call to your friend in Swansea as I've never seen a KN2600 and would like to grin

His name is Peter Lewis and his e-mail address is welshkeys@googlemail.com - I'll let him know you're going to get in touch.
