You've changed needles, but also make sure that the
needle is up into the clamp as far as it will go? Loosen
the clamp a lot, then push up on the needle and tighten.
Regarding your PS - Right click on "My Computer" &
choose "Properties". In the property dialog click the
"Hardware" tab and then the "Device Manager" button. In
the device manager look for the JSMC859 device. Does it
have a question mark next to it? If so, double click to
see what the problem is (most likely driver). If it's
missing, then it has not been detected or installed. There
should be a desktop icon that says "JSMC859 Installer".
Double click that to install/reinstall the driver.
