CONNECT PSR-A300 TO PC

I try to connect yamaha PSR-A300 to a PC  using emu xmidi 1x1  and Musicsoft Downloader for transfering files, but the connection check of Musicsoft Downloader failed.
The drivers of emu xmidi 1x1 are ok in device manager. Any ideas ?

OK just checking - I've always thought having to connect the "Out" plug to the "In" socket was counter-intuitive!
IIRC the PSR keyboards have a PC Connection mode - have you tried forcing this from the keyboard?

I would suspect a problem with the cable
Just checking you've got the MIDI connectors 'round the right way.
Which operating system are you using?

Do you have any other MIDI devices? I still think the cable is suspect as the drivers are supported in Windows and seem to be installed OK and the keyboard should be detected if you put it in PC Mode.  However the emu cables do have a good reputation and do work with PSR's.  I'm no longer using Yamaha and now use Cubase with a Roland keyboard so can't be entirely accurate from the Yamaha/MusicSoft perspective.  The LEDs also point to a hardware issue as they should normally light simply to show the cable is connected and powered from the USB hub.
