: I have recently bought a midi-gameport cable and it didn't work. I tried it on my Pentium 1 computer and mysteriously it worked. As I later found out, my integrated audio chipset didn't support midi but my Creative Sound Blaster 16 did.
: So my point being: If your gameport cable doesn't work, you should check if your sound card supports MIDI.

New computers usually come with an "integrated" sound chip on the motherboard, and the game port is for joystick only, no MIDI support.
If that's the case, you can do two things : get a sound card with MIDI support, or get a USB MIDI interface.
