Roland xp 50 storage medium problem

My roland xp50 synthesizer stores my midi music files and programs via floppy disc which is so archaic nowadays if you ask me aside from the fact that the wear and tear of the floppy drive is open to great risks. the synth is so highly reliant on this drive. i want to know if there's any way to bypass this drive/ use another drive/medium to store and load midi files and allow this synth to connect directly to pc without the 3rd party accessories such as midi ports, etc.... Please advise me, thanks

Hi.

There is a solution that reads and writes on CF cards. It's call HDM uniflash or something like that.

I didn't try in my xp50, but others says it works.

A bit expensive for my taste, and maybe just for handy hands...

Regards.

My roland xp-50 keyboard is dead.


Ok guys. Just got mine XP50 fixed with the "No Display" problem. The LCD screen was blank without text and only shown orange color. The problem is one of the capacitors on the main board was dead. I have replaced all 3 caps on the main board and the problem is solved and if you are a little handy on soldering, you can do it yourself. The 3 caps you should replace are:

- C901 (I used 16V 330MicroF)
- C65 (I used 5V 4.7 MicroF)
- C 902 (I used 16V 330 MicroF)
