PSR550- USB DRIVE REPLACEMENT
by gorazd rakovec
I am the owner of some oldest PSR 550 keyboard, using floppy drive for data storage.
I would like to find a solution to replace the old floppy drive for a USB drive.
On the market I have noticed product at:
I have asked for more information on the compatibility of this replacement unit with my YAMAHA PSR 550, but the producer needs to know the following (part of it's answer):
""Yes, this replaces the floppy completely.
The procedure is to remove your floppy disk drive, and replace it with our device.
Our device is the same size and shape as a floppy disk drive with the same power and data connectors as a standard 34-pin floppy drive.
A couple of questions:
1) Is the floppy disk drive the same as what is used in a PC? Using 5v for power and a 34-Pin ribbon cable for data?
2) Can you read a floppy disk from this synthesizer on a regular Windows PC?
3) Are the floppy disks 1.44MB "HD" style? ""
CAN YOU HELP ME WITH THESE ANWERS?
OR, HAVE YOU OR, DO YOU KNOW ANY OTHER ALTERNATIVE?
