Here's the deal. I bought an electronic keyboard about two years ago and never really messed with it much since then. The other day, I was researching midi to see if I could finally grasp this stuff and decided that I would use my keyboard as a midi controller (if that's what you would call it...?). The keyboard is labeled that it is capable of such a thing and from what I've read it actually can, but the only port it has is a type B USB port like this...

At first I thought this would be ok, but when I tried to record a midi track on my computer (I have Sony Acid Pro 7) it didn't even recognize the keyboard. All drivers are installed properly, but I'm assuming something is wrong with the way it's connected. I've seen a lot of articles saying there has to be a midi in and out and all that jazz, but my keyboard only has one port. Are there adapters out there for this type of thing and if so what is a good brand to look into? Or, is my keyboard really not midi capable?
Btw, this is it.

Someone told me there's a girl out there

I will find this girl.

Your keyboard is definitely Midi-capable, but I'm not too familiar with Sony recording software, did you try it with any other DAW ?

Well like I said, I had pretty much determined it was midi capable, but that's the part that's confusing me. If it is indeed capable of it, why isn't it recognizing when I plug it in?
