My AKAI MPD32 has stopped showing up in live/fl studio/traktor

It connects via standard MIDI so has no drivers. I did manage to get windows XP PRO SP3 to recognise it and go through installation again, but it still doesn't show up. I've disabled novation automap ( i have a nocturn ) and done the whole process again. but still no joy. I am looking at the correct MIDI channels as well.

really stuck. anyone got any ideas?

Much appreciated,
