The drive does not move the head to read from the disk. The motor for spinning the disk works and spins the disk but the second motor that powers head movement does not work. I don't believe the motor is burned out. It is more like it is not being send power to get it moving.
Ideally I would like to replace it for a new working unit. Where can I find it???
Korg Canada, Korg USA and Korg Poland does not have it anymore and when I Google the model number no match is found.

Probably having trouble reading the disk. Try another disk to make sure the drive didn't croak. Or you may have a corrupted disk. Floppy disks are notoriously unreliable. Hopefully you can put the pix on a different disk and try again.
If all you did was "select all" nothing is gonna happen. You have to move the files by drag and drop or "copy to." Computers are sophisticated idiots. You have to tell 'em what to do.
My brother has a Korg X3 which the drive stopped working. It was the drive belt that disentegrated. This unit has a specific floppy drive that is very hard to find. I found a replacement belt for his and got it working. I had to buy 5 in a package to get it though. I have 4 extra ones if you would like to split the price with me on those. You might send me a email if you are interested. firstname.lastname@example.org.
I thought it would be a normal floppy drive since it looks like one.. no dice though. The replacement belt make m brother's unit good as new...
The computer program passes an instruction to the computer hardware to write a data file on a floppy disk, which is very similar to a single platter in a hard disk drive except that it is spinning much slower, with far less capacity and slower access time.
The computer hardware and the floppy-disk-drive controller start the motor in the diskette drive to spin the floppy disk.The disk has many concentric tracks on each side. Each track is divided into smaller segments called sectors, like slices of a pie.
A second motor, called a stepper motor, rotates a worm-gear shaft (a miniature version of the worm gear in a bench-top vise) in minute increments that match the spacing between tracks.The time it takes to get to the correct track is called "access time." This stepping action (partial revolutions) of the stepper motor moves the read/write heads like the jaws of a bench-top vise. The floppy-disk-drive electronics know how many steps the motor has to turn to move the read/write heads to the correct track.
The read/write heads stop at the track. The read head checks the prewritten addresson the formatted diskette to be sure it is using the correct side of the diskette and is at the proper track. This operation is very similar to the way a record player automatically goes to a certain groove on a vinyl record.
Before the data from the program is written to the diskette, an erase coil (on the same read/write head assembly) is energized to "clear" a wide, "clean slate" sector prior to writing the sector data with the write head. The erased sector is wider than the written sector -- this way, no signals from sectors in adjacent tracks will interfere with the sector in the track being written.
The energized write head puts data on the diskette by magnetizing minute, iron, bar-magnet particles embedded in the diskette surface, very similar to the technology used in the mag stripe on the back of a credit card. The magnetized particles have their north and south poles oriented in such a way that their pattern may be detected and read on a subsequent read operation.
The diskette stops spinning. The floppy disk drive waits for the next command.
On a typical floppy disk drive, the small indicator light stays on during all of the above operations.
and if i helped u solve ur problem in any way...please help me by clicking on the fixya rating.. thank you.
I am having a problem with my Korg X2 drive and I need to find a new one, a replacement. If you or someone knows where to find it please let me know. For your Korg Triton I recommend this site www.route66studios.com. They may have your drive.
Sounds like a dead (or jammed) motor -- the one that spins the media. It's relatively easy to open the case, disconnect the USB-to-IDE interface adapter from the 40-pin IDE connector, and go onto eBay to find any "internal" or "external" LS-120 device, and swap it in, to replace the "not-spinning" device.
