Yamaha V-50 MIDI Connection

I wonder if anyone can help me with this one:

I have 3 synthesizers: Yamaha V-50 (workstation synth), Yamaha EMT-10 (Sound expender module), Korg M3R (Synth module).
I wish to find a way to connect at least one of them to my PC so that i can work with MIDI and build MIDI files on my PC. I have a Sound-Blaster 32 sound card and a special MIDI cable connected to my Joystick socket.
I also have Cubese Score VST- a fine software for arranging MIDI.
The problem is I can't establish a good connection. I think I need an IDF file as a "driver" to suit my synth, but i haven't got any file that matches.
Does anyone know where i can find the file(s) i need  ? or maybe a software that builds the MIDI connection to the synth ? or maybe - anyone has the file(s) i need ??
I'd be glad to get written replies telling me what i should do in order to make this work.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Alonrotem: You should have a port on the Sound Blaster card for "line in", use this for your input from the synthesizer to your PC. The sound blaster card, presuming that it has been installed correctly along with the software, will recognize the Midi output from the synthesizer. Now, as for software you should be able to use what you have already. You may also want to consider upgrading the sound card to the Sound Blaster AWE 64 Gold, which has been software and 4 Mb of memory on board.

Let me know how you make out

Best regards,
Dennis
