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.

Unformat floppy disk emulator


Your questions,what does it mean?
If you use PA50SD,of course you don't need floppy emulator.
If you use PA50 with floppy emulator,you need to format the flashdisk with special softwares (SFD 1.23 etc) that usually included when you buy the emulator.

Unformat floppydisk emulator


Floppy emulator can't read flashdisk untill it formatted.
Flashdisk MUST BE format by special softwares.
Install the softwares on the PC/notebook.
No matter how much flashdisk capacity,floppy emulator will continue to read as one 1.44MB floppy.
Through special softwares formater, we can determine how many floppy that we will create. Lets say,100 floppy (or more),softwares will format the floppy 1.44 100 times on the flashdisk.
So we have 100 pieces 1.44MB floppy inside flashdisk. If one floppy can store about 30 MIDI songs,then it means that we already have 3000 songs in flashdisk.
If you format for 100 floppy,the total capacity of about 144MB.
So,flashdisk with a 2GB capacity, is more than enough to store songs.
To change from one floppy to enother,just press bank number at floppy emulator panel.
I hope this helps.
Regards.

My korg o1wfd needs a new floopy drive,but I don't know which one


This I am afraid is going to be a real problem. The original 01WFD's were shipped with the single density (720Kb) floppy drives, not the easier to find 1.44Mb ones. You could try contacting Korg.

From experience I can tell you that while many of the drives have similar interfaces, the music companies often had drives that required special strapping in regards to the drive select. There are not many of the single density ones around anymore... you might find one in a computer recycler's archives.

Trying to use the common double density 1.44Mb disks in the Korg is NOT going to work either, and if you have tried this, that MAY be why you are having problems, and new floppy drive isn't going to fix the problem... The "artifacts" left by 1,44 formatting remain between the tracks when put into the Korg.

To get around this, you can try TAPING over the extra hole that 1.44 disks have AND most importantly magnetically DEGAUSS the disk and then reformat using the drive in the Korg.

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.

How do I transfer music data off my korg Triton keyboard's floppy


Either the floppy format of the Triton is not PC compatible or maybe you don't have a floppy drive on your computer? If the latter, buy a USB floppy drive... about $20
