How do make your port and midi face device?

Question

I bought a Usb Game Port at Radio Shack thinking that I would be able to hook up my midi interface to it (game port style). I can't get the thing to show up as a midi port please help. Is there any way to make this communicate with a midi device. When the usb game port install it's drivers it installs as a Human Interface Device.

You have to buy a special adapter in oder to hook it up to midi devive, also you need to configure your port by going to start setting then control panel then go to printers and other hardware then select game controls then click, then go to add then after you add, go to trouble shooting then follow the step.
