This refuses to acknowledge that a disk has some 28 tunes/accompaniments recorded on it. It went like this as I was scrolling up the numbers to get to the last tune first. It had been reading fine until then.
I thought I may have upset it's programming, would a reset of factory settings lose the stuf it came with? I have nothing of my own installed on it. Jim
I rebooted the keyboard as suggested by the FAQ then reformatted the floppy in the computer. I tried a recording which it then played back fine. It also acknowledged the title of the song as 001song as normal.

The floppy drives of this age often required strapping to select the unit number and other setups. Newer drives were not compatible. Make sure the drive selected light remains on when power is on. If not, check the drive selections jumpers for the drive.
It is VERY easy to not have gotten the cables back and seated completely for the floppy disk. ALSO it is very easy to damage the ribbon cables on floppy drives by pulling at the edges of the ribbon to pull connectors off. One MUST distrbute the force all across the cable as it is easy o damage the connections in the connector for the wires near the edge. It is also easy to damage the pins on floppy drive connectors. You will need to reopen the unit and check the cables INCLUDING the little power cable to the drive. If you have damaged the ribbon cable you can either replace it or possibly get another connector and put it on the cable right next to the one with the problem and crimp it in a vise... These are an insulation displacement type so you need to get it on straight and ALSO verify the index is the right direction before crimping. For your problem think cables, cables, cables...
This sounds like it MIGHT be a floppy drive problem rather than a full memory... REMEMBER to ONLY try recording a file no bigger than what the floppy will hold which is 720Kb.
NOTE: The disks used in this are not the COMMON 3.5 inch floppies, but the older 2DD 720K floppies. They have only one hole on corners where the new 1.44 Mb ones have two holes.
To USE the 1.44 Mb flopies do this: Use an opaque tape to cover the hole that does NOT have the write protect slider. THEN most omportantly DEGAUSS the disk with a degausser. THEN Reformat the disk in the CVP 65.
The pre-formatted 1.44 disk when formated at the 720Kb used by the CVP 65 will have ARTIFACTS between tracks since the higher density also have half the track spacing and the formatting doesn't always clean enough width leaving artifacts between the tracks when formatted as 720Kb These ARTIFACTS can cause trouble.
The 720Kb disks are ESSENTIALLY unavailable anymore.
