If you go to Yamaha website,CVP 409 specs, it will tell you how to hook up each one of the interfaces (ie floppy, usb, external hd and mem stick) and this should apply to other models.

I SUSPECT that the CVP 409 will ONLY talk to the Yamaha USB floppy drive, not a hard drive or memory stick.

The internal drivers for these musical instruments do not have the "smarts" to talk to the wide variety of peripherals that PC's are able to.

I can't connect a usb device with music on to the clavinova.


You have to format the USB stick using the Yamaha Clavinova. The reason is that the keyboards expects certain file/folder structures on the stick. If you format it on the computer, the computer will not know what files or directories to create for the Clavinova when it formats the stick.

How do I activate speakers on Clavinova CVP 601 piano after having disconnected the head phones


It is likely the contacts on the headphone jack are sticking. If you're lucky, spraying some contact cleaner into the input will loosen it. Be careful not to get the spray onto the rest of the cabinet o the keys. If that doesn't work, you will need to take the unit apart so you cab get to the part to clean it.

The disk drive on my Yamaha Clavinova CVP-105 acts like it has a disk in it when it doesn't and won't always play pre-formated disks like it used to. Is the drive dieing? Where can I go to get it fixed? ...


Often these drives are continuosly selected by the controller and rotate even without a disk.

These USUALLY use the old 720K disks which are almost impossible to find. The common 3.5 1.44Mb floppies often will not work in these units.

You can SOMETIMES use the 1.44Mb disks by covering the second corner hole AND degaussing the disk with a tape eraser and then reformating the disk in the Clavinova.

The pre-formatted 1.44Mb disks without degaussing SOMETIMES leaves artifacts between the tracks used by the 720K disks that causes problems.

Cannot use the floppy disk of my CVP 65 as it appears the memory is full. It plays new discs, but won't record.


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.

Can I replace the pedal unit to the Yamaha Clavinova CVP-75?


I can't solve the problem, but just wanted to sympathize because I have the same problem. My pedal is broken on my Yamaha Clavinova cvp85a. It worked wonderfully for years but finally it broke.
I'd be in the market for buying a new pedal or fixing the old one. But I've not found any suggestions in any of these forums for either solution.
