SOURCE: Machine won't recognize CD-ROM after harddrive format

You have to change it in the bios, press F2 or DEL on startup depending on your bios type. The bios screen then will have second line of advanced bios settings, in here you need to select the cdrom as the first boot device, by using the up down arrows or pageup/down or '+or-' keys. Press ESC when cdrom selected and save settings when propmted. The system will re boot so ensure the cd is in the drive and press enter when prompted to start with cdrom.

Try tapping the F12 key during boot. That should bring up a menu of bootable devices. Select the floppy drive.
You can also change the boot order in the BIOS.

Make *absolutely sure* you are plugged in when you flash the BIOS!

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.

I own a Korg Triton Classic. I just replaced the touch screen on it. Now it wont read the floppy disks...any suggestions

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...

I need to replace my floppy drive on a yamaha psr 9000 keyboard

Why.. get a USB floppy.. if you go inside a PC and pull a wrong wire your PC will be toast. Get a USB floppy. Why are you using floppies anyway? Get a USB stick for $8, way less then a replacement floppy and much safer.
