The USB legacy mode was always set to Enabled.
And I tried it with antivirus disabled, and UAC disabled.... still nothing :(

Maybe I should have gone with the Gigabyte mobo... aargh.
I'm gonna go out and buy a powered USB hub now and see what happens. Still open to suggestions, but I really fail to see what else can be done at this point.

Actually, should I try out an older BIOS version?
I know you have it on your laptop, but any chance that you can have a buddy with a Win7 64 bit laptop (or you head to his/her place) to go through a fresh installation there? I wonder if something is up with the DJ unit; your laptop can use it since it had it installed before, but maybe there is something wonky with the device itself (that the laptop with a previous good installation is lucky enough to recognize still).

It works! With a powered USB hub, but it works!

Which probably means that it simply wasn't getting enough power from the mobo? Which I find very odd. I'll use it with the hub for now but ultimately it'd be nice to fix the problem. Given that MSI touts the "SuperCharger" capabilities of the thing it's strange it can't power the unit on its own.

Supercharge only provides a higher amperage to charge devices like tablets and phones. This higher votlage/amperage could be causing your controller to think its in a charge state not a data state.

That's what I was thinking when I saw the supercharge stuff in the manual. If it takes a hub to turn it off/make it work properly then thats poor implementation on MSIs part.

edit: also check out the bios and see if there is a supercharge option to disable.

I think MSI has a utility that you can install to enable or disable that feature.. it might even be hidden in the bios somewhere.

Well the SuperCharge only affects one USB header and therefor just one set of ports. I don't even have anything connected to those pins.
It all happens through the application - there aren't any BIOS options for it.
