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.

Check to make sure all the buttons are bouncy and not stuck down. If all the buttons seem OK then it may be broken and you will need to replace it. Try a USB keyboard to make sure the laptop is still working correctly.

BIOS SEES DD FLOPPY SYS (DOS ALSO) NOT


Most floppy disks that you will still be able to find are 1.44MB DSDD disks, which a 720k drive will not be able to read. Check the capacity rating of the disks. Also the 720k drive has got to be at least 20+ years old, and the read/write heads may simply not work anymore. 1.44MB flopyy drives are literally a dime a dozen, you can probably pick one up at your local thrift store or electronics recycler for less than the bus fare it took to get there.

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.
