  • Download the NVIDIA GeForce Drivers if your computer has this video card from here.

  • NOTE: When downloading or installing their software use their default settings. Once you have done this, Reboot the Computer as needed.


We say "possible" here because it depends on your computer and what types of files you want to play.

If you imported CDG disc KMA songs are stored on an external USB hard drive, the Songs Database will NOT find them unless UAC is disabled. This is a Microsoft Access Database limitation, not a Hoster bug.
