OK, a few more things to try. The main thing is to make sure that the QS and the computer are talking in the same midi channel.

(1) Try setting the QS to OUT 1 (somewhere in the global menu). Without the sequencer running, you shouldn't hear anything coming out of QS; it's only sending midi data out. Now set the sequencer to receive in Channel 1 (Or Omni, to receive in all channels), and set the channel echo to on. If the connections are right the midi signal should do the roundtrip to the sequencer and back to the QS and you should be able to hear the QS normally.

(2) See if cubase has some kind of midi signal indicator. For instance cakewalk has an icon that it puts next to the clock on the lower right of the screen which shows when midi is being received or sent.

(3) The demo song may be in GM format so you may have to turn General midi on.

: Well, thanks to some great tips from some folks here and other parts of the net, I now think my PC and QS6 are talking to each other. When I do the I/O test in the driver setting window it recognizes my QS. But now what? I have the version of Cubasis from the disk that came with my QS loaded but I can't hear the demo song and don't know how to actually play from the keyboard to the computer. Sorry to ask for so much help but I'm extremely new to this. I've been a video guy for years, just now trying to do sounds.
: Thanks.
