Can't speak for all, but I'd like to know indeed.

Did you try the synth OS uploader utilty ? Can it find your engines ? And what if you use the uploader after booting the synth with the secret button presssed (pin into small hole in front) ?

If the upoader finds the synth (remember to have only one connected !), did you try to send the new 1.2 software to the synth ? (it is supposed to solve the problem you have).

Hello Jan Very Happy
As I can see, you are curious about my situation, and I thank you, because actually I feel so disapointed Sad
I did try the synth OS uploader utility, but it doesn't work for me.
Yes, I did try to plug and unplug the usb cables (I tried with original usb cables from clavia), nothing come.
Also you must know that one of my two G2 Engine work fine twice after the 1.2 update, I even opened the 1.2 Editor software Laughing, and the bug came after.
The other one is in 1.1 OS and it is not detected either, I've tried it on 5 different computer Mad, it's weird/////

My conclusion is that the problem is focused on the usb connection, nothing comes out of the usb anymore, seems the OS is bugged.

Anyway, all I can do is send them back to CLAVIA to have two new G2 Razz

Thanks Blue Hell for your support Wink
Thanks Electro-music.com community Twisted Evil
Still trust in CLAVIA Wink
God Bless Electro Twisted Evil

Gomidas that's bad news, not only for you.

It seems you've tried everything you could, so indeed a device swap with Clavia seems the one thing remaining.

I feel sorry for you, keep us informed.

Jan.

If using a modern mac with OSX 10.3.x does not solve the problem ( do not use an USB hubs etc), then you should indeed contact Clavia.

It's hard to do it without any kind of hardware detection Sad

I think the bug came after my first 1.2 OS update because the second G2 engine was plugged; is this the cause of all my troubles?
Before that I've tried the 1.2 Editor software twice and everything was workin fine, but it seems that the synth OS was already instable.!!!!
As I try to update the second G2 Engine, I was so surprised to see that the updater didn't detect no modular!!
Because I didn't touch anything, except the fact that I let it plugged during updating the other one Confused
At this time both synths were bugged Evil or Very Mad

By the way CLAVIA is closed until the 1st of August Shocked Bad luck Laughing

Thanks GOd of Electro I still have my nord modular G1 Twisted Evil
Thanks "Kristof Middendorf" & "Tony Smyth" for the "Patchs_categorized" bank for my NM (essential for me to work)
So I can keep on groovin on my project, bouncing audio track of my NM Wink

I keep you all in touch!
Thanks for your support Razz

My keys version of the G2 needs a driver re-installed every time I unplug it from the USB and plug it in again while the OS (winXP) is running. This is avoidable by shutting the computer down first. This might be a simple, stupid question, but have you tried restarting the computer(s) with the G2 engine plugged into it?

I think I did it a few times, but I'll try it again to be sure Wink

But I must take one G2 Engine out of the box, because they are both ready to go back to their manufacturer Smile

I keep you in touch, thanks for the tip Wink
