MIDI to USB problems

  Billy911 22:37 21 Jun 2006

I have a Korg synth that I want to connect to my PC. I've got a lead going from 2 MIDI ports (IN and OUT) on the synth to a USB port on the PC. The trouble is everytime I connect the USB side of the cable to the PC it automatically reboots. If I leave the USB connection in THEN switch on the PC I get a Blue Screen Of Death. Have I missed a step or something? The cable didn't come with any software or anything.

Sounds like either the cable or the usb slot has a short. Does the cable work in another slot? Do other usb devices work ok in that slot?

Has your cable got the interface incorporated into it, and have you plugged it in the correct way round.
