Setting up PercPad with Live 8

I have the Lite version of Live 8 and have been trying to figure out how to use my Alesis PercPad as a controller.  The problem is, I can't seem to even get Ableton to recognize that I have my PercPad plugged in at all. 


I'm using a MIDI to USB cable with the MIDI In plugged to the MIDI Out slot of the PercPad and the USB plugged to my Mac.  Do I need to plug the MIDI Out part of the cable to a MIDI interface?  As of now it's not plugged into anything. 


The PercPad does not have a USB port by the way.  It just has a MIDI Out.

    Same here. I've touched almost everywhere online, but I'm thinking I have to switch to another Alesis product for it to recognize. Bummer. :/
