1) Make sure that you have installed the driver for the keyboard (if necessary)
2) Check in the Audio MIDI Setup utility (located in the /Applications/Utilities folder) if OSX recognizes this MIDI Device. If not then GarageBand won't see it either.
Hope that helps

Thanks for your response. I've already tried this, and it won't let me open my MIDI studio as it just loads for about 5 minutes and then gives me an error message.
My M-Audio keystation doesn't come with an installation CD either, which just annoys me further! I've tried searching for the driver on the M-audio websites and various other drivers yet they don't install and won't open.
I apprecaite your post though.

Thanks again for the response. That's the thing, I've checked my MIDI drivers folder and there's nothing in there whatsoever. I don't know if you can get hidden files on a mac and I'm not too sure how to go about finding them, so they could be there but just not visable.
I have recently instaled ProTools and Logic Pro 9, but I think i'll have to just unistall them and start over.
Thanks for your help

You may have looked in the wrong library.
There are two libraries, where midi drivers get installed on a mac:
- For all users: /Library/Audio/MIDI Devices
- Your user library: ~/Library/Audio/MIDI Devices
Your user library (in your Home folder) is hidden by default in Lion or later. You can reveal it from the Finder's "Go" menu:
Finder > Go
then hold down the options-key, until "Library" appears in the drop-down menu, select it, to open it in the Finder.
Added: If you want to reveal the User Library permanently, open a Terminal window and enter:
chflags nohidden ~/Library
