Hey, I'm sure you've answered this questions 100 times, but I still can't find a solution and hope you spend the time answering it.

I just got this new macbook and want to hookup my keyboard (Yahmaha PSR-260) to my comp and play around with garageband. I have a midi to usb cord, similar to this Uno cord (http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Uno-main.html) but the problem is that GarageBand does not recognize the keyboard when its hooked up. I try to play the keyboard, but all I get is nothing. In the prefrences in GB it says that it detects one (1) midi input but it still won't play. I've also changed around the audio input and output to the built in options. What seems to be the problem? Do I need to downlaod some drive from the yamaha website, like which one? Or is it my midi cord, and if it is which kind of cord do you recomend that functions with GargageBand well?

Here's the manual to my keyboard http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/pdf/emi/english/port/PSR260E.pdf the midi section starts on page 52

Thanks for any tips and help!
