    I'm running OS snow leopard with a Yamaha DGX-200 model with a MIDI USB interface W-718

    i tried to set it up but could't get it to recognize. ive tried switched the out and in MIDI and trying to use Audio MIDI Setup in utilities.
    When i open garageband it didn't say anything about noticing audio devices either

    does anyone have a solution to this??

    First thing to check is that you've not got the MIDI cable reversed. In goes to Out and Out to In. Does data move from the piano to the cable? A LED should blink if you play a note

    Next under "about this Mac" under USB, do you see the MIDI adapter? Have you connected it to an un-powered hub?
