ION Discover DJ w/MixVibes problem

hi,
a few quick warnings:
1. this probably counts as a massively n00b question.
2. if someone has already asked about this before, I apologize, but I couldn't find the thread.

I recently bought the ION Discover DJ computer DJ system
(MixVibes Cross, and the turntables pictured)

and it won't let me set up the turntables for interface. (there isn't even a MIDI tab under preferences). what am I missing? and if this issue has already been dealt with, feel free to point me in that direction.
thanks

Welcome to the forums :)

Does your computer recognize the controller when you plug it in?

This a straight plug & play process, the only thing you need to setup is your audio.

yes. it went through the whole thing; installing the stuff and stuff when I plugged them in, complete with the "ready to use" ending. and MixVibes can tell when it's not plugged in.
but all the buttons light up and it doesn't do anything. I would assume then that the problem is in the turntables themselves, in which case, would anyone know how to fix it; or perhaps would any of the following be compatible with the software, and therefore a suitable replacement? (I thought I would be fancy, but scratching isn't really necessary for my style of dj-ing):

Behringer Pro Mixer VMX100USB Professional 2-Channel DJ Mixer
or
American Audio Q-D1 Pro Studio DJ Mixer

There is no other unit than a Ion Discover DJ that can work with the Discover DJ software.
Do you use a webcam ? what brand ?

Sometimes there is conflict between webcam drivers and the generic audio usb drivers.
Try removing the Microsoft ones to see if it work.

Hello!

I have the same exact problem... Lights turn on but nothing else happens... even though it got installed and everything.... I will contact ION on monday, but figured I might see if anyone here has a good solution? I know the hardware works on my brothers laptop... The only other USB Device I have is my mouse... no cam or anything else installed.

Thanks...
