After you get it... If you still get a "no device is connected" when you try to install the driver... You should also report the problem to Yamaha Support.

Okay bummer... I hope the new cable solves the problem. But it's uncommon (strange) your old cable just stopped working like that for no reason. Anyway, best wishes.

I just bought a new one today, it must be some software malfunction. Or maybe the hardware on my keyboard.
Thanks bro! :wink:

You got to have this type of cable hooked up to your computer. That is why you are getting the " no device connected" warning after installing the USB midi driver. That driver is specifically for that USB terminal( USB To Host ). If you have a USB printer handy it uses the same cable and you can temporarily try it.


We are talking about the S900 correct?

Yes, I noticed yesterday that the driver installer was only for the USB to host. And thanks, I used the printer cable and IT WORKED! I don't know why the the other connection stopped working, I spent 20 bucks for a new cable for nothing, but now it's fine.
Thanks everybody!! :D

Hi,

Maybe some Windows or other software update messed with your USB drivers? It's hard to say.
