How to upgrade my PSR3000 from firmware version 1.58 to 1.80?
« on: December 27, 2011, 07:47:37 AM »
I am trying my luck to upgrade my PSR3000 from firmware version 1.58 to 1.80.

I don’t have a smart card reader. So, I am transferring the data to Smart media card from PC using ‘Musicsoft Downloader’.

Files are getting copied. But, when I try to install, the screen says “the installer program not found. Please Eject the card.
System Booter Ver. 1.03

Could you please help me to get it installed?

Thanks.

manganam,

Welcome to the forum.  8)

The files must not be inside any folder or the keyboard can not find them.
You also must unzip the the files from what you downloaded.
You wil end up with about 3 to 5 files to copy.

Hi

1. Unzip the files.
2. Make sure they are copied to the root of the samrt card.

Yes. I already unzipped & then only copied to smart card.

Yes. I put them in root of the smart card. 6 files. (see the attached snap shot of those files).

Still, I am getting the same the message.

I am confused.

Help!!!

Still medals are away, Mr. Jorgen  ;)

I believe I know what is causing your problem.

First, download the files again from Yamaha's support site--just to be safe. After downloading, extract all files. If you are using windows7 the files will automatically be extracted to a folder. DO NOT COPY this folder to the Smart Media Card--it will not work.

Next, open the extracted folder of files. There should be six files in the folder. Highlight each file,  then copy all the highlighted files by right clicking and selecting copy. In my case I have a card reader, therefore I merely open the card, right click the card, then click paste. This will place copies of each file into the root directory.

After the files have been copied to the Smart Media Card, make sure the keyboard is turned off, and insert the smart media card (gold side down) into the PSR-3000.

Next, hold down the Start/Stop button (Located in the style control section) and while holding it down, turn on the keyboard. This will activate the installation program on the Smart Media Card. Follow the directions on the screen and the upgrade will load in approximately 3 minutes. There is a progress bar that you can monitor the upgrade process.

When the upgrade is finished, turn off the keyboard, then turn it back on. You will NOT lose any data and the only thing that will be affected is the operating system.

Good Luck,

Gary 8)

Wow! So kind of you....

I am working in Kuwait. But, we got our office in NY.
Could you please send it to that address? I will email that address in another personal mail.

//I also think windows 7 won't extract/copy the files properly.// Is that true?

Thanks a lot.

Ted,

Yes, you can skip, but in order to do so you must use the Smart Media Card. If I recall correctly, if you already had the second version in the keyboard, you could upgrade from the USB drive.

Dear tnicoson,

Thanks for the detailed reply. I have checked my SM card, which is 3.3V ( I have attached the picture of it-showing the gold foil side is facing towards me).
More over I have been using this card for saving MIDIs in my Yamaha PSR 3000 Keyboard. If it is not a 3.3V card, it won't save my styles and midi files on it in the same Keyboard.

So, your conclusion is wrong is my case. Now, I have to try with a new/different SM card. That is the only option I didn't try so far.

I have done the formatting in Yamaha PSR-3000, which will do only FAT formatting. So, that is also not the problem! 

Gentlemen, we need to find a way to solve this issue; not only for me...there are many others still don't know about this firmware update.

Thanks for everyone... Have a blessed Happy New Year!

Regards,

Zac

Zac,

Thinking way bacl, I just don't believe Music Soft Downloader can make the proper file transfer.

Seems we tried to move the files using that method in the past and it just would not work and I don't know why.

You best hope is to transfer the files on someone else's PC that has the card reader installed.

For whatever it is worth, if Gary's Smart Media Card fails to get the job done... it might be worth the effort to try an incremental upgrade; would it not?

Joe H,

What do you mean by "incremental upgrade"?
Sorry....I didn't get you.

If my problem is related to the files inside my Smart Media Cards,
OR
If my wrong way of copying it (I followed whatever senior members had told me to do) ,
OR
If the problem is related to the windows 7,
OR
If I have all wrong/bad smart cards.
then,
Mr. Gary's Smart Media Card will do the the work.

Otherwise, Something wrong with my PSR-3K  :(

Thanks to all..

Zac

Just hang on till you get Gary's card.  8)

After you do this upgrade, you will be able to do all future upgrades using a USB stick instead of the smart card.

You do not need to do an incremental upgrade - that would not provide any benifit or make
the upgrade more possible - the older upgrades are no longer available for download in any case.  ;)

Zac,

If for some reason the Smart Media Card I mailed to you does not work, then I can assure you there is either something wrong with the reader, or the connection to the reader. I tested the files by updating my spare PSR-3000 using the card I mailed to you, and did it the same day it was mailed. Everything worked just fine for me.

Good Luck,

Dear Gary,

I am eagerly waiting for your card. It doesn't reached me yet!
The upgrade files are already there inside the smart media card. Right? So, I don't need to copy any files, I had downloaded.
I am just making sure.

Praying Hard that this time I should succeed.
I love my PSR 3K. I have wrote and composed few songs with that only. It's Microphone facility also awesome. So, I can play and sing together....

Regards to all...

All the files are on the card. Just follow the instructions provided by Yamaha and it will install perfectly. Of course, if there is something wrong with the Card Reader in the keyboard, then nothing will work.

To determine which firmware version is in your keyboard Press Function/Utility/Owner and hold down on the "I" button next to Owner Name for about three seconds. The information will soon appear on your screen. Press OK, then exit to the main screen.

Email me your telephone number at travlin_easy@verizon.net and I'll give you a telephone call this evening when I get home from today's performance. Unfortunately, you live too far from me for a house call to try a fix in person. You can also call Yamaha's service department in California and they may be able to solve your problem.

I really appreciate and thanking you for your help.
Unfortunately, I will be going for a business trip.
Can I hold your Smart Card for couple of weeks with me?
If I found any other way, I can update with that. Or if you need your smart card urgently, let me know too.

Bill,
No, this the first time upgrade for my PSR 3K. My PSR 3K’s firmware version is 1.58.
Even though, I bought it in 2006, I have never been upgraded my keyboard. I wasn’t aware of this upgrade.  :(

I mailed it today as a Registered Mail. ( RR000455903KW ). Hope it will reach you within 10 days.

Anyway, I have copied all the files from SM card to my card.

Hi all, hope I'm not too late for the show! I've got this lovely PSR 3000 with version 1.54, and wondering what am I missing out on? In other words, should upgrade the firmware? I know one limitation that I currently have is that I can only use up to  2GB USB stick, which is quite annoying, but we have come to terms with this. So are we missing out on anything else? I cannot seem to find any info on what the various upgrades offer?
Many thanks for any info in advance
