Question about Ye Data (YD8V07) Internal Floppy Drive

5 Answers

Yamaha Keyboard I have a Yamaha SY77 keyboard, which has a 720k floppy drive built in. Unfortunately it's not working, so wanted to replace it. Can I use a 1.4mb drive instead? If so, how do I overcome the difference in the power connection type between the drives? (the 1.4 mb has a 4-pin power connector). Or does anyone know where I can obtain a replacement 720k floppy drive?

Had a problem with my drive. Had to import another from Japan at a price - only to find the drive reads disks when it feels like it. Tired of bad disk error messages when they work perfectly fine.

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.

Model: PSR 620. The floppy drive is not working and needs to be replaced. Original floppy drive uses DS DD 720kb floppies. Where can I get a replacement drive? How much does it cost?


The replacement cost of these is prohibitive often greater than $200.

You should try to clean the heads in your drive and see if you can spot a mechanical problem. Clean the heads carefully with 91% isoprophyl alcohol and Tube Gauze on a tongue depressor. Be very careful.

Not sure about your particular keyboard, but on the Yamaha Tyros the style will NOT start rhythm until you select start AND hit a chord.

Yamaha Keyboard SY77 has no power. I've tested with a multimeter the power button and all the fuses that share that same circuit board. All seems well. Any troubleshooting ideas from this point forward?...


Try finding the bridge rectifier which is the device that converts the incoming alternating current into direct current which powers the circuits. Test it using the diode test function with a multimeter if you have one and see what results you get. There may only be a voltage rectifier or just a series of back to back diodes but that is what you want to test. I don't at this point have a schematic or service manual for that keyboard. Hope this helps.

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.

This drive supports Ready signal or Disk Change signal on pin 34 (RY34 or DC34), has a large number of jumpers for various settings, thus (unlike the standard 235HF drive which works in PCs only) this drive can used to replace a 720k drive on older computers such as Amstrad CPC/PCW or Commodore AMIGA.

Epson smd349 floppy


Hi Elia, Could be a couple of things: -Your drive may only be a 720K drive. They will format 1.44 MB disks but only with a 720K format. The test is inserting a HD disk and try formatting it as HD. -The disk could be mislabeled, HD disks have two holes on end opposite the slide, one to write protect the disk and the other to signal to 720/1.44 capable drives this is a HD disk. -The HD disk could be formatted as a 720K disk even though it is an HD disk, reformat as HD. -The new, used drive could be damaged. -The drive could be configured as a 720K by the computers BIOS. You?ll have to enter the BIOS setup find the config for the A drive and set to 1.44MB. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
