it looks like I made a mistake on my settings. I want to install a program, but the computer thinks that I want to watch a video. Is it possible to change the settings?

Leopoldo Pla, I tried to do what you said and I am still having problems. I downloaded Kazam so that I could try and show you what I was seeing, but I don't know how to send the screenshot to this website. I noticed that you sent some screenshots, can you tell me how to do this so that I can help you see what is going on? – BJsgoodlife Jun 3 '13 at 1:26
Leopoldo Pla, I don't know what I did differently, but MIDIsport Uno is now installed. I appreciate your help. – BJsgoodlife Jun 3 '13 at 1:53
