We are not sure when you say you have a USB MIDI cable.

You need a regular USB cable. Yes it will be carrying MIDI data, but it is simply not clear if you have some kind of cable with 5-pins on one end and the USB connector on the other.

Connect the TO HOST port of the MM6 to your computer by a standard USB cable.
In the MM you want to go to UTILITY mode, and find the MIDI settings… Set MIDI IN/OUT = USB

feat9,

Although they are sometimes called “USB MIDI cables” what you have is a USB MIDI interface that is built into a cable. Many of these are of questionable quality.

You don’t need to use this, simply use a standard USB cable to connect your MM to your PC as Bad Mister described above. The um3123x86 driver is meant for this connection, that is why you are getting an error.

that’s a midi interface for a keyboard that doesn’t have the USB interface built in. you just need a regular USB cable to work with your MM6. install the driver as instructed.
