    I got a Yamaha PSR-170 that is new and i can't seem to connect it to my computer. I have only one port on my computer which the 15-pin cable can fit in (the Game Port). Can anyone tell me how i can connect them? I followed the proper steps so don't give that crap like "maybe you didn't hook it up properly", cause I did!!!!

    A proper MIDI cable should do it without any problems - I use PSR290 myself

    well the game port/ midi port uses what is called plug n play but it's not usb so you have to shutdown and restart then you have to install the drivers in order for the device to work.

    standard midi interface cable should do the trick.
