Memory increase is a No-No.   Only way to protecting Floppy Disks, all floppies have a little slide switch to stop them being written too. Floppies can however become unreliable after a lot of uses.

u have to get the flash ic removed and replace it with higher value, needs a technician.
only way to protect floppy data is to install floppy emulator

1st -  you cannot increase internal memory.
2nd - You can protect the Floppy from being ruined but locking it as mentioned.  This way nothing can be added or removed and distorted on the floppy.
3rd - You say that after a few days a lot of the diskettes are not working.  Do you by any chance have a magnet or anything magnetized laying near the diskettes?
        If you do then that is your problem.  Anything magnetized will ruin the floppies.

You may need to clean, or replace the floppy drive.

Good Luck,

Hi Gary,

On the cleaning of the floppy drive, I certainly agree.  Many, many, people forget about the drive for years.  Then all of a
sudden it does not work.  All a person needs to do is get a floppy drive cleaner and depending upon how heavy of use it gets.
use the floppy cleaner every 8 hours or once a week.

Someone is giving away a new floppy for the price of shipping (to the USA only)

If you want to consider a USB floppy emulator, there is a GOTEK brand on eBay that wil replace the ALPS floppy drive. The USB thumb drive can be formatted for 100 virtual 720K floppies or 100 vitual 1.2 and 1.44 MB floppies.  the USB drive can be exchanged between the keyboard and PC with no problems.

Wondering if anyone can suggest the "correct" floppy emulator for the Yamaha PSR 2100, looks like my floppy finally stop working.
My 2100 still performs and sounds great other than the floppy issue. I don't mind an ebay purchase etc, just need a recommendation from someone who may have recently replaced theirs.

Thanks
