    Probably, you do have the cable end marked IN plugged into the MIDI OUT port of the Korg.


    There definitely should be a green light blinking everytime a MIDI signal is sent from the keyboard. Modulation wheel, keypress.. anything that sends a MIDI signal should make the green light blink if the cable is working correctly.


    Do you have any other devices with a MIDI out?



    You did try a different USB port.

    In case you missed this bit by the OP...



    Ok so i'm in the Midi window of the Audio/Midi set up app and it has three things in in. "IAC Driver", "Network" and "USB2.0-MIDI" which I presume is what i'm looking for, where do I go from here?


  it appears the USB Midi is being recognized by OS X... just no data is arriving at Logic it seems..


    As luch would have it I checked the link he posted and realized I had one of those laying around, putchased on ebay for a few dollars I think. It's either not compatible with recent hardware or has a manufacturing defect.

    It does seem to work ok.

    Then it does sound like you either have a faulty cable (most likely I think)  or it's not fully compatible with recent OS's...(as per some of the comments on Amazon)


    Sorry to hear this.. Such a pain... but really cheap cables/connectors can be quite unreliable unfortunately..
